Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

problem #6

Sep 092010

Durango 5.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 114,000 miles


I purchased this suv in 09/.2009 it was working ok, really didn't have any problems at first. it ran well but why wouldn't it, the motor was just rebuilt. outside of consuming fuel like crazy, mostly because of my heavy foot i would think. then i started to hear a very annoying loud humming noise from the front end. thought maybe its the type of tires but what do i know. it got louder and louder so took it to a shop and was told the hubs needed to be replaced. so they got replaced at $85 per hub, did both sides front plus labor. then seemed ok until a little after a year later. then again with the noise, worn out again. only had 1 year warranty on parts, of course 3 months past. did this repair all over again and again and again. is there really no fixing this correctly? because if not I'm ready to burn it to the ground and return to my nearest dealer and tell them here's your piece of sh*t vehicle back???????????????

I am having a grinding/rubbling noise from my wheels when turning. I see there is a recall on 4x4"s but not on 2x2's. Wondering how much it will cost to fix and does anyone have a suggestion on what I should say and how much it would cost to repair, so I dont get ripped off? Thanks

So i was on the highway going about 65mph and the wheels began pointing inward the vehicle began to sway. It was unexpected and pretty lame going at that speed it sounded so bad almost like my tires were shredded. This could be very dangerous so hopefully it doesnt happen to that many people.

I have never had a wheel bearing fail before and this one failed with no warning! 5 blocks from home it developed a clunking sound and the wheel fell inward, locked up and pulled the brake line loose. Better have them checked out, it could have been bad if I was at highway speed. I am having the dealership checking on the upper ball joints to see if they could cause the problem. I think it would if they are loose. We Will See

This is just as bad as the ball joint failure and more common. The wheel bearings are sealed and cannot be maintained! This could actually be causing the wrecks people have complained about and needs to be addressed. The bearing failed and the wheel leaned inward and locked up causing the Durango to pull sharply to the left. The only thing that saved me was I was only going 15 mph and the road had ice on it. When I asked the dealership if this was included on the ball joint recall he said no. I told him that I had never had a bearing fail on any vehicle before he said, "I see this on a daily basis!" I said then there is a design problem. He replied, "They are sealed and can't be maintained and if you drive on dirt roads or in fields like the farmers and oilfield people do they will fail." I told him my Durango is the 2 wheel drive family SUV and it has never seen any off road driving.
