Purchased 2006 Dodge Durango June, 2007 August, 2007-vehicle started violently jerking -engine light came on-was told it was the cam sensor. Instrument cluster also defective and replaced. Electrical problem, causing door locks to malfunction replaced. December 6, 2007, car jerking again-engine light came on - drove it to the dealership - was told it was the transmission- front pump and torque converter replaced. December 18, 2007 mileage not reading accurately-told that the instrument cluster that was installed in August was "faulty?. replaced again. January 2, 2008, vehicle violently jerking again- dying in the road, if over 40mph. Engine light on-dealer replaced the cam sensor. -very hesitant that my car was become a threat. February 22, 2008, vehicle jerking, then died on the road at 45mph -able to start it, drove to the dealer-was told it was the PCM. PCM replaced -cam sensor also. Complained to Chrysler, trying to get answers for this ?lemon?. was told this time that they were 100% they fixed the problem. Dealer gave me written ?good will? extended warranty on my vehicle for 5,000 extra miles. April 15, 2008. Traveling 45mph- car started violently jerking again and died in the middle of the highway. Power steering gone- struggled to veer of and slow down, losing control. This time, a bus was behind me and swerved, laid on the horn and avoided hitting me. Was able to make it to the shoulder of the road-called the dealership. Towed my car. Have had enough of this vehicle -will not put my family in danger one more time!!!!. need to be free and clear of all financial responsibility of this car. Dealer now tells me that they are ?hard-wiring? the PCM directly to the cam sensor. They told me that there is a ?glitch" within the wiring that they will simply bypass by putting in a direct connection, thus manipulating original wiring codes.. I will not put myself and 3 children in this situation again, and refuse to pick up my vehicle!
