Feb 02, 2009
Location:
San Antonio, TX

the problem started in 2009. went to drive the truck and could not get the truck to drive over 20 mph. was able to get it to a dealer close by and had to have the throttle body positioning sensor replaced. since that date i have had to have this same sensor changed 8 more times. each time the private mechanic talks to chrysler and they recognize there is a faulty problem with this part and will not recall the item. when this sensor goes out it will not let you drive more than about 20mph. also had to replace the accelerated pedal positioning sensor 4 times. blinker problems noted by many other consumers i have also had. where you turn on the left blinker and the right blinker comes on. as well as the a/c problem many consumers have mentioned the door breaks and then all you have is outside air coming in. my mechanic has tried to get replacement parts from chrysler to repair the problem and chrysler does not sell this part (please explain to me how they can make the vehicle and not sell the part to repair it when it breaks knowing it breaks often). tie rods have also been a problem with my truck. no matter how tight they are they continue to come loose even after being replaced and then the truck will shake. my main concern at this point is it intermittently will die while driving down the highway. it will start right back up but will die again and then it wont duplicate the problem for 2 or 3 days and then will do it again. have not been able to diagnose this problem yet. if anyone knows any suggestions to look at please advise. *js

Dodge Durango 2004

Safety incident date:
May 08, 2012
Location:
Sanford, NC

i was approx 1/10 of a mile down our local road when i heard a sudden explosion under the car. it sounded as if the tire blew. i immediately started pulling over but i continued to hear a rumble from the car. upon inspection, i noticed there was oil running down the front passenger tire. the mechanic has confirmed a thrown rod through the engine block. no previous warnings of issues with the 122,000 mile engine. car has been regularly maintained (but not at a dodge dealer). now i'm faced with a $6,000 bill to replace an engine that should have lasted another 100,000 miles. as i researched this on the internet i found that this has happened to numerous other owners of this model engine (5.7 l hemi 2004 dodge durango limited). no recall has been made on this engine although it is evident that this is a common, costly, dangerous manufacturing defect with their engine.

i was at a stop sign and began to make a left turn when the vehicle stalled. i was able to stop the vehicle from rolling too far into the intersection as a vehicle past from left to right. this was the first time my vehicle stalled. i have had it stall multiple times since each time moving from a stopped position. each time the vehicle starts right up after the stall and i have no check engine lights or the like appear. this is very concerning to me especially when it happens when im pulling out into busy fast moving traffic. *tr

i just bought this truck with 97,000 miles and it ran great when i took it for a test drive. shortly after my purchase my truck suddenly stalled while i was making a slow turn leaving me without engine power, steering and brakes. the truck started right up and runs like there is nothing wrong with it. normally i wouldn't file a complaint until i looked on the internet and saw a whole lot of people with the exact same problem that nobody seems able to fix. *tt

whe i drive the durango it starts out fine. when i am driving at a highway speed the oil pressure is fine, but when i slow down or come to a complete stop the oil pressue is at the line right above the 0. i have read many complaints about the sludge that the engine makes. i have 4 kids and i don't need anything to happen to this vehicle to break down. i also hear a ticking sound when i first start the engine and then it goes away. i don't have the money to pour into this vehicle! if there are so many complaints and the mechanics know about it why isn't there a recall! very dangerous situation for anyone to be in. *tt

i was traveling along the interstate and noticed a hesitation in my automobile due to a seized up engine. just before it seized up i heard a knocking sound coming from the engine. the car would not start. the car was towed to a garage. the service person did an investigation an informed me that the engine was damaged and would need a complete overhaul or replacement. i was told by the machanic that the engine in the vehicle is notorious for failure due to a malfuctioning oil pump or defective connecting rod bearing. i did some research an found that there is a recall associated with a failed connecting rod bearing. one of my co-workers experienced the same thing with his automobile which is a chrysler/dodge product. this engine is a safety hazard in that by seizing up while in motion it could cause the driver to loose control of the vehicle resulting in serious injury or death. *tt

i have the 6.7 cummins diesel engine. while stopped and with the air conditioning on and while the truck is performing the regeneration process raw fuel and exhaust fumes enter the cab of the truck forcing me to roll my windows down. this has caused me to get lightheaded if i don't roll my window down in time. this happens about once every two weeks to me(each time the above conditions are met). putting the air conditioning on recirculate will help. however recirculate will not work for the heater or window defroster which further impairs my ability to drive. i spoke to the dealer and they called dodge. dodge said that this is normal. this is not normal and is a serious health and safety issue. *tr

Duluth, MN

serpentine belt slips off in the rain causing a loss in power steering, ac (for window defogging), power (no alternator when headlights are on during rain). when it slipped off, the ability to correct for loss of traction due to water was reduced due to lack of power steering and the windshield fogged up quickly due to the loss of the ac compressor. slid of the interstate and slid down the median. multiple other instances of belt slipping off (4 times in past 3 days), though at lower rates of speed. dodge denies there is an issue even though there are many reports on the internet relating to this problem. it is also interesting that they now sell a upgrade kit that changes out the two non-grooved pulleys for grooved ones and add a belt with grooves on both sides. they said that they would only fix this problem when enough people reported the problem. *tr
