problem #3

Oct 262004

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,700 miles
On October 26th at approximately 3:40pm my wife, carrying our six children, was driving our 2000 Dodge Durango on Chicago's lake shore drive when the right front wheel popped off. Fortunately there wher no injuries related to this potentially fatal mechanical breakdown. Our Durango has less than 75,000 miles on it. It is our understanding that many Dodge Durangos have experienced this problem however, neither Dodge nor the NHTSA has done anything about it.

I watched the show on cbs about Dodge Durango's having a problem with the front ball joints in their vehicles and to date they have had 79 "incidents" relating to the front end/ball joints and Chrysler has not put out a recall for the vehicle. I have been stationed in guantanamo bay, cuba for the last three years and I finally got a chance to take my 2000 Durango in for some much needed work since arriving back in the states. I told them I had noise coming from the front end of my vehicle. We have heard this noise for about six months and then I saw the show in cbs about three weeks after arriving back in the states. Low and behold, you can add our vehicle to the list of problems. We had to have all our front ball joints replaced along with other front end work. Thank goodness I got the extended warranty, or I would have paid over $1,000 for something Chrysler should be recalling. We really enjoy our Durango, but we will think twice about buying another Dodge when they don't care about the safety of there customers.

Dealer replaced both upper and lower ball joints and associate control arms on 2000 Dodge Durango R/T at what I think is premature mileage.
