Durango 8-cyl

  • 100,000 miles


I have to stop far away from a vehicle fear of running in the back of their vehicle. It doesn't seem to want to stop sometime, this has been happening for awhile now alot recently. It cuts off on me if I get in the highway so embarrassing and when that happens I only can take off slow. Which causes me to exit the highway and not get back on. I had bought a car vacuum and it stated smoking on me, I was using the socket in the arm rest. I have alot of problems when I use the A/C or heat it cuts off on me and it stalls to take off, it's scary for me and my kids. It Ram by it's self and it acts as if it's gone cut off and most of the time it do. It make this putting sounds when it's going to cut off or even when it stops on me. The dealer replace the Cadillac converter and my oxygen sensors. I also got a tune up and two of the fuel injectors replace new parts, that I paid for myself. It feels like my front suspension is messed up I had my brakes checked and they are not bad, but you can feel it when you press on the brakes something is not right.

2003 Dodge Durango was purchased from a local dealership in wickliffe, oh in April of 08. The vehicle has been at the dealership needing to be serviced in excess of 7 times, from the bushings being replaced to the check engine light repeatedly coming on with the dealerships inability to fix it. I have been in a rental car more than I have driven the vehicle that I purchased from the dealership. There was an evap code as they so eloquently stated so they allegedly fixed that only to find that the check engine light still continually comes on. Every time that the problem was supposedly resolved, I was back at the dealership within 2 to 3 days with the same problem again. The management there stated and admitted that they simply can't fix the vehicle therefore they are going to get me out of it so they even had me to pick another vehicle which they said would fit perfectly and should not affect the payment that I have in place right now. I have been hearing about getting this replacement vehicle for over 3 months with no result. The vehicle is not safe when driving on the highway and hitting a bump because it feels as if the front end is going in two different directions. My wife wont drive it, we are scared to put our kids into it and I need your help right away.

The contact owns a 2003 Dodge Durango. The contact took her vehicle to the shop because the check engine light remained illuminated. The mechanic noticed that fuel was leaking onto the exhaust, which could result in a fire. The manufacturer stated that nothing could be done because the vehicle was out of warranty. However, they stated that there was a recall for the 2004-2005 models. The failure and current mileages were 60,000.
