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.

2003 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #6

Apr 022007


  • 34,000 miles


In 2.5 years, I have put in 5 window regulators using original Dodge parts in my 2003 Dodge Durango. A 6th one broke 10/13/09. This part is defective in that it breaks irregardless of usage, today a rear window broke which has maybe been used a dozen times since I purchased the vehicle. The driver's window was replaced three times within 60 days, because the brand new parts broke. Dodge is well aware of this issue, because of the constant back order within their parts department and frequent consumer complaints well documented on the internet. Their paraphrased response to my complaint was too bad it's out of warranty.

Both front electric windows in our 2003 Dodge Durango stopped working. As soon as I paid to have one window replaced; the other window failed. The passenger front window came down as I was driving over a bridge in a rainstorm. The rain pelted my children who were riding in their carseats in the next row of seats. As soon as I got off the bridge, I turned onto an exit and waited out the rain at a gas station. I still have not replaced the window. I have it braced up with a rubber screw driver; at least it is up now.

On 4/2/07, I had the driver side window regulator replaced. It broke while driving down the road, not in use at the time. On 4/28/07 it was replaced again. On 7/7/07 it was replaced again. On 7/23/07 it was replaced again. On 8/20/07 it broke again. This is an oem part, not an after market. I've spoken with several mechanics who said this is definitely a Dodge issue. What do I do?

  • Automatic transmission

- the contact owns a 2003 Dodge Durango with a current and failure mileage of 34,500. The contact was driving at 60 mph under normal dry conditions when the vehicle stalled. The contact stated that when the stalling occurred all of the instrument panel lights turned on, and the door chime started to buzz. The contact was able to pull to the side of the road without a crash. Since the stalling the windows failed, they did not go up or down, the windshield wipers and headlights worked intermittently. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer, and the dealer could not tell them why the failure occurred.
