2007 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

Vehicle shifted into 4WD and then to neutral and would not shift back. Had to pull to side of road to avoid a collision. The problem here is actually the transfer case motor. On the AWD model it is a 2 speed motor on 2wd it is a one speed motor. This is important because you need to know which you have if you are looking to replace

Engine quit. Similar I think to like car that I have recall on for tipm nhtsa24V-530 seems awful coincidental. Multiple occurrences but all when stopped on this car. Perhaps same part used in prior year that is being recalled for 2011.

2007 Dodge Durango slt 4X4, stalling and engine failure without warning while driving down the road. The first few times the engine stalled it would lose all power and stop in the intersection with little to no way of controlling the vehicle. Once the vehicle stalled and several more times in an attempt to get safely out of the road the engine would no longer start. The dealership has had the vehicle for several days with no luck in finding the issues. I also have issues with the fuel system when filling the vehicle with gas it shoots out of the tank everytime it is filled up. This started at approx 45K miles. I was unaware that this is a safety issue, since it is a know problem with Dodge it should be addressed.

The car flashes 4lo consistently and, you can hear under the car when your not even driving the car switches into different 4X4's. when, you unlock the door it switches into different 4X4's. when, you go into reverse and, turn your wheel all the way the car locks and, you can't move unless you turn your wheel a different way. It also does this in forward. This is an issue that has been happening to other people and, Dodge still has not done anything about this. If, you go on this website you will see other people with different year Dodge that this has happened to and, yet there still is no recalls. This has to be fixed or someone can, get hurt with the car locking like this and, it going into different 4X4's. www.cargurus.com/cars/discussion-T4148_ds482593?actionmessages=your+answer+has+been+posted.

I will be driving and my 4WD lock will engage without me turning it on causing my tires to stick to the road. It prevents me from turning my steering wheel without the car acting like it is going tip over. It seems like the same problem that was experienced with the 2006 Dodge Durangos.
