when driving truck on highway at speeds above 45 mph, and especially when driving over a bump, rut, or slight imperfection on the road, the truck will literally get away from you and veer to another lane. especially worse when driving in a turn or curve. have had several near accidents in past few months, since purchasing truck in july of 2003. have taken it back to dodge dealer numerous times, and they say it is "normal". last service advisor told me to "file a report" so that daimler chrysler will eventually "have" to fix the problem. have met several people at dodge service departments that are there for the exact same problem. the truck is a major safety hazard with fatalities soon to come. steering wheel will jar out of your hands and make a sharp turn to the next lane. *jb

Safety incident date:
May 22, 2003
Location:
San Bernardino, CA

we bought a used 2000 durango sport approximately 5/2002 from the jeep dealer in ontario, california. they said it would haul our 19 feet travel trailer. we had sloopy steering issues. when going over a bump while traveling on the freeway the steering would wobble as if to almost lose control. when traveling on all over passes with the steering wheel turned, it will lose traction for a short period causing the steering wheel to turn by itself which results in almost lose control. when you are turning freeway "corners" at higher speeds it feels top heavy as if you could roll over due to instability of suspension & steering. it makes clicking noises from the rear end. we have bought 2 complete sets of tires new tires and 3 front end alignments since we have had this durango. sears said the alignment was completed as best as possible, it was almost out of scope as it was, the caster and camber bearly meets the specifications. while towing our we flipped and rolled our 19ft travel trailer over, just about a half mile from our home. my husband and 12 year old daughter were not physically injured in the roll over crash, but have been tramatized to this day. the trailer jacknifed and disconnected itself off the ball and anti-sway arms; resulting in no damage to the drango. however, the trailer and personal items inside were a complete loss, not to mention the crane and the flatbed towing. my husband took this durango into a private mechanic shop for an estimate of the steering/suspension issues and was advised to have the rack & pinion knuckles replaced. we took the durango into moss brothers dodge in san bernardino, california and had them check the front suspension and specifically asked them to check the rack & pinion knuckles all due to steering issues as described above. the cost was about $800 for replacment of hubs, break master cylinder and front end alignment. most of our complaints still exist while driving this 2000 durango today.*ak

i purchased a brand new 2004 dodge durango from a reputable car dealership expecting it to be the high quality that i have always been used to with dodge. however, i am extremely dissatisfied. when i drive this vehicle on the highway ( at posted speed or less), it feels as though the wind will pick it up & carry it away! it sways & shimmy's constantly. it feels as though high air currents are curculating inside the vehicle also. it does not feel safe at all. what should i do? i am retired & live on a very modest income, so i cannot just go have this problem repaired with no thought of the cost. i also have another problem with my dodge durango. whenever i have the window ( or windows) open at all, whether it be a crack or completely open, a very loud, almost deafening roar enters the vehicle. i causes such horrible ear pain to all inside the durango, that we can never have the windows open at all. this may seem like a minor problem, but actually it is not. besides the fact that i am paying for this vehicle through a loan & expect it to perform as a new vehicle should, my wife has severe asthma & many times will need fresh air in order to breathe properly. it is not always possible to stop at the side of the road! please tell me what i should do. thank you vey much!*ak

Dodge Dodge Truck 2002

Safety incident date:
Aug 13, 2005
Location:
Springfield, MO

loaded vehicle with 1440lb sand. upon driving highway (never exceed 55mph) within 20 min vehicle smoked heavily from engine bay. discovered that vehicle's power steering pump has an overflow valve line that seems to have a pressure valve at the end of it. this hose is connected to the wiring harness near the battery, and points vertically at the hood, just over the valve cover assembly. power steering fluid poured over the engine, combusting on the engine assembly, but not flaming up. my assumption is that this vehicle's power steering unit is somehow tied to a "load leveler?" that is factory installed. due to the load weight in the back of the vehicle, this caused the power steering fluid to overheat and expand, causing the ejection of fluid. another answer is that this is somehow a transmission fluid overflow, and the automatic transmission simply overheated. unfortunately, with the position of the overflow release hose and valve, this required replacement of several hoses and a wire kit due to the damage. my question is why would this fluid be ejected above the engine---this fluid is definitely petroleum based, and flammable. had i continued down the road further, i certainly would have had flame. please note, the weight rating for this truck is 1800lb, i am 265, and the truck was empty, except for the 1440lb of sand. i was approaching the rating, but not nearly overloading the truck.

my 18 year old son bought a new dodge srt-4 and 3 weeks later lost his life in an accident while driving this vehicle. it is a very fast and unsafe car. the car was not made well enough for such high speed that it was capable off. it should have never been made ,and especially sold to such a young person. everyone needs to be informed about this vehicle and the terrible consequences that occur when driving it the way dodge presented it to the public. our lives have been ruined due to this, and we do not want anyone else to have to go through what we did. i contacted the dodge corporation and spoke to an attorney, and asked them how many people had lost their lives in this particular vehicle, and she answered, we have no way of knowing that. i know that was not true. *ak
