while driving on the highway, my front end didn't feel right. the following morning, i took my truck to my mechanic to check it out. he got in it to take it for a ride. when he turned the wheel, there was a clunk. we got out and looked, the passenger side front tire was turned to the right, the driver's side was straight. he said it looks like something happened to the tie rod. it turns out, the threads holding the tie rod together, stripped and it came apart. he said i was lucky it didn't happen on the highway that the wheel probably would have came off and it would have been disastrous. i still have the tie rod. i contacted daimler chrysler and told them about the problem and asked to be reimbursed for the repair. they told me that they won't reimburse me because i didn't bring it to a chrysler dealer. i was at my mechanics, what was i going to do? i think they just want to cover it up. my mechanic replaced the stripped tie rod on the driver side, and replaced the right outer tie rod end because it had play in it. *nm

my son escaped danger when the transmission/torque converter of his 1999 dodge dakota went out on an interstate highway. after replacing that and heading back home, his u joints and wheel bearings went out almost causing another wreck. these were all repaired. so far $3000 in repairs in a month. then the oil pressure dropped to zero as he was driving. now the oil pump needs replaced. along with the tie end rods, the timing chain, and the serpentine. he'd already had the total brake system replaced this summer. having all the receipts showing regular oil changes, the warranty company refuses to pay for the oil pump because of some sludge in the pump. now i find from researching on the computer that this is a very common problem in durangos and dakotas. we've put $5000 in this truck in less than one month. the manufacturer needs to admit the flaws in this vehicle. they have some responsibility here. we are just glad he was not injured or killed. but we've put over $5000 in a '99 vehicle - which is unfair when the problems are related to the design and manufacture of the vehicle. *nm
