Notes: The second generation Durango was introduced in 2004 and instantly came under fire for, well, catching on fire.

From 2004-2006 electrical overloading in the driver's side instrument panel caused numerous reports of interior fires. The interior infernos became so commonplace that Chrysler eventually issued a recall.

The problems didn't stop there, however. Owners of the recalled vehicles complained about being treated unfairly and given take-it-or-leave-it low ball settlement offers. "They offered me $2000 under NADA retail as a settlement," said one owner, "and have been rude and hostile to deal with." Nothing says awesome service like treating your customers rudely after their cars have caught on fire.

Durango SLT 8.0L

2004 Dodge Durango, the power window buttons are are shorting out and not working. first it was the back passenger window then it was the front driver window and then the front passenger window. at first you could get the windows to roll back up if you played with the buttons over and over until the window finally rolled up. but sometimes you had to push the button up and down for almost 5 minutes until the window rolled up. after this we just stopped rolling the window down. sometimes someone forgets and rolls down the window then it takes 10 minutes of pushing the button to get it to roll back up. i took one of the switches out of door and you can see where the piece underneath has turned black like it burned or shorted out from to much electric current.
