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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

THE WINDOW ACTUATOR FOR ALL 4 DOORS BROKE AT 100,000 TO 110,000 MILES. MORE ELECTRICAL AND RADIATOR PROBLEMS WITH THIS DURANGO. SEEMS THEY ARE DESIGNED TO HAVE MULTIPLE BREAKDOWNS AT 100,000 MILES. NEXT TIME I SHOP FOR A JAPANESE VEHICLE. THEY ARE JUST BETTER MADE THAN USA VEHICLES.

This is the fourth time i will have replaced the part in my driver side window. the bills start to add up after a while. i have also had to replace the rear driver side window twice. is there a recall on this i know of several other people that have had the same problems with the 2002 and 2003 models.

Durango 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125,000 miles

Two of 4 window motors are broken, window falls down. Had to install boards inside door panel to keep window up. 3rd window has symptoms of pre-failure.

Window electric motor is all metal except for a plastic sheeve. Plastic bracket for sheeve breaks off. (50 cent part). Would be easy to replace, but Dodge will only sell the complete window motor mechanism as a system for $150.

1st one went out, repaired myself. 8 months later another one, 1 yr later another one, less than a year last one. The front drivers window that was replaced broke again, problem is little piece of plastic crap where cables hold. NOT covered under warranty.

Durango Sport SLT V8

This is the 2nd time in 18 months I have replaced the window. 3 of the 4 windows in the car have fallen due to the regulator. The motor is fine, but of course they only come as a unit!

window won't go up or down! maybe off track. not covered under warranty. too much time has passes. dealership says it will cost 350.00 to fix. this is ridiculous for a vehicle which has less than 38000 to be messed up.
