2006 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012007

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles


Issue I: stall vehicle was being driven down a sloping road that curved to the right approx 35-45 mph. Steering became unresponsive and I realized moments later the vehicle's engine was no longer running. Brought vehicle to the dealership. They could not find any problem. I recently went online to discover to my horror that I am not alone. In fact, on one discussion group over a hundred people reported experiencing stalls. I have a pregnant wife. I am concerned that were this to happen to her she would not have the strength to control such a large vehicle without power steering. Issue II: Repeated warping of brakes. Had vehicle for approx. 6,000 miles when noted pulsation of brakes. At next service I inquired about it and was told the rotors were warped and needed to be ground down. I felt it should have been covered under warranty. Dealer declined. Approx. 4,000 miles later the problem began to re-occur. I noted problem to dealership at next service. They expressed the rotors are warped. Dealership accused me of driving to aggressively as being the only cause. I do not accept this as valid. I am not an aggressive driver. I have seen that numerous others have reported similar problems. I have since read that improperly torquing the lug nuts may be a cause for this problem. I do not think it unreasonable to expect breaks on a new vehicle to last more than 4K-6K miles before needing maintenance. My last SUV required one significant break service during the 115,000 miles of ownership. I feel that both of these issues endanger the safety of my family. I feel that neither issue has been satisfactory addressed by Dodge.
