2001 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 242004

Durango 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,123 miles


I was attempting to make a left turn to enter a parking ramp at work when unexpectedly I was unable to control my vehicle, as a result I collided with a concrete wall. I had some digital pictures taken as the police would not come to file a report on private propery. The vehicle sustained major damage and I'm convinced this is related to a poor design/weak parts used in the steering linkage/suspension system.

My car suspension has been horrifying since the day I got it new. One day I was in my garage going no more than 5-8 miles an hour and the wheel fell off and caused tons of damages to the car. It went through insurance and insurance should get reimbursed through Chrysler, as this is a defect. I was without transportation for over 30 days. It cost me over $1000 because of that on top of the deductible. My company leases the car and we want out of the lease as the suspension is acting up again. Dodge dealership has done everything to make a charade of this and not admit any wrong. The incident date below is approximate.
