1998 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 012015


  • 156,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Dodge Durango. While the vehicle was idling, the engine suddenly shut off. The vehicle was examined by an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the fuel injection lines were faulty. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure continued to occur. While depressing the accelerator pedal, the ceiling light inside the vehicle would erroneously turn on. In addition, when depressing the brake pedal, a banging noise was present coming from the front of the vehicle. The vehicle was examined by an independent mechanic who was unable to determine the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 156,000.

Nyle maxwell Dodge supercenter in austin Texas was paid to fix my sensor light for the antilock brake system which comes on continuously and stays on 100 percent of the time. I was told that they needed to replace a sensor which would cost just over $1100, and was required to sign off on a form so they could begin the work. After they had my Dodge Durango a couple of days, February 27, 2013, I got a phone call from service to say they could not completely fix the problem and that the light still comes on "intermittently". their explanation was confusing. So I believe that I understand from this, if the warning light is on that the ABS brake will not be working at all. After this, I was given an option of paying another $350 for a separate part, perhaps "module" and the service man felt it would be the solution. I collected my car without nyle maxwell Dodge supercenter having fixed this $1100 issue. But I paid their bill. (I need to take it somewhere for a second unbiased opinion.) as a customer/consumer of their service agreement, I should have the right to expect them to fix it from here on out to completion at the expense of nyle maxwell Dodge supercenter; or refund me.
