2002 Dodge Durango check engine light illuminated continuously, black smoke was seen coming from tailpipe. Mechanic determined this was because steering wheel fluid leaking onto the computer. The steering wheel had been making a clunking and whining noise when turned. This was noticed prior to the problem being diagnosed. It took several trips to the dealer and multiple repairs for the dealer to diagnose the problem. The consumer is requesting compensation from the manufacturer.

I have two: 1: brake rotors are once again out of round/warped SUV has 37,000miles on it, used mostly on weekends. Pads have over 90 percent left. First rotors were changed at 20,000 miles (about 1-2 years ago) pads then were still 80 percent left. My other car, driven just as much, does not have this problem. 2- power steering is non-existant when temp is under 32 degrees. After you let the car warm up about 1 min., it starts to work.

The car is hard to control (steer) and the dealer has worked on it two times and is unable to correct the problem. The star hot line was called today, and I was told to bring the car in in six days and they would work on it again. I am concerned about how safe it is on the road.
