1998 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

There is a plastic flap covering the vent in the dashboard which prevents air or heat from coming out of the vent. I've tried to push the flap back down but it continues to flip up when I used the heat or air conditioner.

Since buying the used 1998 Dodge Durango slt in October of 2001 with approximately 26000 miles. I had the Dodge dealership to replace the motor in the front driver's side window which cost me $100 for my deductible. I now have a problem with the rear view mirror defogger on the left and right side of the vehicle and now passenger side window motor is bad. I haven't replaced it as of this time. Although the Durango is approximately 4 yrs old, it only had 26000 miles on the vehicle which meant the vehicle wasn't driven often by the previous owner. I brought a car fax report to confirm that the vehicle was in good condition. I hope you can help with these problems which is definitely a manufacturing problem. Thanks

The flap which allows the air to either flow through the vents or defrost or heater vents is stuck blowing air out the heater and defrost vents. I have talked with others who have this same problem and have been told by the dealer that it is a known problem with Dodge. I can't afford to pay $200 for a part that is known by Dodge to have a defect. My children and I are about to suffocate from the heat of the summer. Is Dodge going to be fixing this problem or not" my next problem is the front end will not stay in alignment. I have been through two sets of tires and have had the front end aligned three times in the last 6 months with no results. I know of plenty of Durango owners with this same problem. Is this defective parts causing this problem" I also have a problem with the ignition/starter not wanting to start at least three times a week. Don't know if this is a defect or just something worn out. Don't know of anyone else with this problem yet. Thanks.

During cold weather, the heating system fails to provide heat to the front panel vents.
