problem #2

Aug 042003

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,000 miles
I had a 2002 Dodge Durango. I was driving it one day with my 2 young sons in it, and it caught on fire and nearly killed us all. It burned down to nothing. You can view pictures of it at w.bethelpark.com, go to the vol.fire dept photo gallery & look at pictures for Aug. 4th 2003. Vehicle fire South hills village shopping mall, that is where I had to pull off the road. Dodge & Chrysler did absolutley nothing for me. I just want people to be aware of this, because if there is a defect, my warranty didn't do anything which was suppose to cover bumper to bumper for 3 years 36,000 miles and I only had 11,000 miles on it. This vehicle had to have a short or a defect, cause everything was factory. There is nothing left to it, please view the pictures at the web site I told you.www.bethelpark.com.

Durango 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60 miles
Electronic controls of safety equipment do not funtion properly. Turn signals, lights, cruise. Gauges, windows, radio, airbag etc.. all have malfuntioned since the car was picked up from the dealer. It is obvious that a electrical problem exists in the vehicle but doddge/Chrysler is un willing to address the issue.this is an ongoing issue. I have numerous witnesses and have started video recording the problems.
