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 already caught on fire.

2005 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Durango Hemi

Started out of the blue a couple of months ago. Constant clunking/knocking noise. Can actually feel the knocking under my feet and in the steering wheel. I have had the car at the garage 3 times but each time they claim that they cannot duplicate the problem. It seems to be more noticeable when the car is going at least 25 to 30 mph or above. Can't seem to identify if there is something particular that triggers it - believe me I have tried. I feel like I am loosing my mind because the mechanics can't seem to figure out what the problem is and the sound isn't a sound that makes you feel safe.
