2001 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 112001

Durango 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,250 miles


I own a 2001 Dodge Durango with power seats. This is the second time this issue has occurred. The first time was repaired under warranty before the part completely failed. The second time the part completely failed and is currently being repaired under warranty. The drivers power seat bracket has metal rod running from left to right under seat thigh area. This metal rod is used to lift and adjust the seat height. There are metal washers attached to servo motors that fatigue and wear out. At first seat begins rocking slightly backward on acceleration. Eventually washer(s) fail causing metal rod to move freely without any stabilization. If drivers side power seat is lowered all the way to the floor and all the way back the seat appears stable. If drivers side power seat is raised and adjusted for smaller driver and the washer has broken, the seat falls backward severely and has the potential for causing a severe accident. I'm a member of the Durango owners club (www.durangoclub.com/ceilidh/ceilidh.html) and several members are encountering issues with the seats rocking back and forth over time. To date, we are the only ones in your club reporting that the seat actually breaks and falls backwards.

(reported on)

Durango 4WD

  • miles
The electric driver's seat has a slight rearward or rocking motion when I step on the gas either starting in traffic, or accelerating. The seat has a slight forward motion or rocking when I'm slowing down, or stopping. The seat has had this condition since it has had aproximately 5,000 on it. I have not reported it to the manufacturer or the dealer where I bought it because I have been told by others who have reported it that Dodge and daimler Chrysler do not consider it a defect, and will not repair it.
