The contact owns a 2002 Dodge Durango. While driving at an unknown speed, the contact heard a clunking, whining, and humming sound coming from the front end of the vehicle. He drove to the repair shop and the mechanic stated that both the upper and lower ball joints and a tie rod needed to be replaced. The mechanic performed a wheel alignment. NHTSA campaign id number 04V596000 (suspension:front: Control arm:upper ball joint) was referenced. The contact was also informed that the entire cooling system needed to be replaced because the dealer could not locate the cause of the failure. The cooling system has not worked properly since the repair. The switch to operate the blower motor fan only works on high. The failure mileage was 110,000. Updated 07/15/08. The brakes were replaced numerous times. Updated 07/15/08.

The contact owns a 2002 Dodge Durango. The contact states that while driving the vehicle the brakes on the drivers side caught on fire. The vehicle has not been taken to the dealer. The brake pads melted to the rotor and the calipers on the drivers side were replaced. The brakes and the rotors were replaced about two months prior to this and six months before that they were replaced. The total amounts of times the brakes has been replaced 5-6 times and that is changing the rotors more than twice.

Dealer states that brake rotors are warped to the point of not being turned and that I will need to pruchase new ones at the cost of approx. $450. The brakes pads are only slightly worn. Car shutters vigorously when brake is applied. Dealer states that this is not under warrenty and that this is not a manufacturers defect. I have contacted Dodge/chrystler waiting for a response.
