problem #1

Oct 012004

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles
1-electrical system on overhead digital compass system became very hot. This electrical component system did not work for a period of a few days. It has intermittently worked now. 2-when you turn the steering wheel there is a horrible noise coming from one of the rear wheels. It makes a "woo-woo" sound every time the vehicle is turned, primarily turning right. A "honest" mechanic, who is a friend, told me that Dodge (Chrysler) was infamous for this type of wheel problem. 3-the transmission seems to have a hard time shifting, which involves the above wheel problem. 4-the air conditioning system does not cool and the vehicle is only 4 years old. 5-the leather covered dash is peeling up and began last summer, when the vehicle was only 3 years old. Contacted Chrysler/Dodge hq and dealership and both have refused to repair problem.
