Durango Cedial V8 Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20 miles

This suv has been in the shop more than at my home. Remotes did not work at all, rear interior light hangs down. Interior trim falling off already. water pouring in lift back hatch. Now I have 1600 miles and the airbag service light came on while I'm driving, bells going off like I'm getting ready to crash. I've have suv for over 2 months and have only put 1600 miles on it because dealer has had it more than me. They did fix one recall on the brake caliper when they had it. Now I see there is one on the air bags and they never did anything about it ? People are crashing because of these...

Durango SXT V6 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68 miles

The vehicle is currently at the dealer for a second time in a few short weeks now. This has been an issue from the day we drove it off the lot, and only really paid attention to it when the outside temperature dropped and the heat was turned on. I can only describe it as a “maple syrup like” toxic smell from vents only when the heater is on. The dealership told me the manufacturer is aware of a “smell” issue and does not have a cause or solution. The vehicle doesn’t appear to be leaking antifreeze.

The first visit, the dealer flushed the coolant twice and a line was replaced, item # 68189075AE (Hose Purge). The odor was just a pungent afterwards. The dealer flushed the coolant again and told me the smell is not as noticeable. They will be keeping it an extra day to check for critters (Not sure how rotten flesh could be confused with maple syrup).

I am suspecting a heater core issue, bad rubber or bad plastics, but it really doesn’t matter what the problem is, I need the smell eliminated. I certainly do not want my kids in this vehicle breathing in the toxic air.

Both loaner cars they provided had absolutely no heater smells.
