Our Durango randomly shuts off while driving or when we are idle. It happens a lot when making turns and I loose steering as well. ABS indicator on as well as check engine light. The check engine light usually shows O2 sensors or crank shaft sensors. Had both replaced many times and the issue still occurs. Very dangerous situation, as it is our family car.

While driving the car I turned to park and it shut off. It has done this many times, while driving down the street. I am afraid to drive my kids in the car for fear it will shut off on the highway.

I was driving on the expressway and my car began to stop and several indicator lights came on, engine, asb/bas, and tps. The car stopped and I had to move it into park and restart. This has happened several times in the past fw days. Usually while I am driving on a non hwy surface. I called and asked about a recall to this number 800-853-1403. I was then referred to the nearest dealer.

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.

2007 Dodge Durango limited, we took the car to get an alignment done in Sept. 2010 at Dodge of blaine in mn. They said the left tie rod was loose during the pre inspection. We had it fixed. Less then 2 months later the left tie rod completely broke and detached from the tire. I was driving at the time with kids in the car. I've been told by the Dodge dealership that this is a problem that they see a lot of and Dodge needs to do something about but has not yet. Is Dodge waiting for a death lawsuit before they do a recall on this. This could be a very deadly problem.

I have a 2007 Dodge Durango bought 3/7/07, and on date 4/4/07 been in shop twice for steering issues and they have both times said nothing is wrong. The Durango also has idle issue and harmonic balance issue. When driving I have to keep steering to the left in order to stay straight, turn to right not even half inch and you are in the other lane of traffic. Go around curve at 35 to 45 mph and you feel like tires are going to fall off. Dealer ship has on both occasions in shop said nothing wrong. There is a recall on steering however mine wasn't included. Very hard to maintain own lane when driving. Nothing has corrected. A back tire was replaced on 4-2-07 dealer checked drove and didn't find anything.
