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.

2014 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

Durango 6-cyl

  • 1,651 miles


Driving with cruise control set at 35 mph, cruise holds normal on flat or uphill driving, however when going down hill the engine idles down to an idle and the transmission shifts into overdrive. When this happen the torque converter in the transmission disengages causing the vehicle to "free wheel coast" down hill. On a hill with a grade of 3 to 4 percent the vehicle reached a speed of 55+ mph in less than 1/4 mile. I was told by the dealer that this is normal for this vehicle. The only way to control the speed on a down hill situation when the speed is set is to apply the brakes and disengage the cruise. This process however does nor reengage the torque converter in the transmission. For that to happen I have to press on the accelerator pedal. Sometimes when that happens there are great variances in the stability of the vehicle as the transmission grabs.

While driving I noticed car wouldn't shift gear. It was stuck on D6 when came to a full stop at stop sign. Then car wouldn't move forward after pressing gas pedal. Getting out of car to ask for assistance to push car on side of road, the car started rolling forward. Ran back to car N drove back home. Parked car in garage and turned off car then back on. Now the car wouldn't go to any gears. It's stuck on park. It wouldn't reverse or drive. Called Chrysler warranty online and they had it towed to the nearest dealer for repair.

While driving the car was stuck on D6. It wouldn't shift gears up or down. Pulled over and was at complete stop but car was still on D6. Had turned car off and on then the engine light came on.

As in another customer report, I also often move over to the left lane to attempt to accelerate to pass another vehicle (in treacherous freeway traffic or eventual oncoming vehicles in two lane traffic- dangerous)...the response after pushing the gas is very delayed sometimes as if the pedal is stuck. Even when the pedal is pressed completely to floor, the vehicle does not engage in acceleration for multiple seconds. When the vehicle does engage it reacts to where the pedal is at the time. If the pedal is at the floor it shoots to rpms up very rapidly.

I often attempt to accelerate at slower speeds generally between 20-30mph to pass another vehicle etc... the response after pushing the gas is very delayed sometimes as if the vehicle hesitates.
