2013 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #9

Nov 222016


  • 100,000 miles


Vehicle looses power and stalls when approaching a stop (while still in motion). I have to place vehicle in park and restart vehicle in order to continue driving. I am very concerned that this is going to cause me to be rear-ended at some point as it does happen prior to me arriving at a stop sign or stop light. This has been happening for approx. The last 3-4 week and becoming more frequent.

For the past 2 months we have been having problems with this vehicle it's been stalling on me, weather if we are on the highway or in town. Now the amazing thing is that it comes back on, on its own without us touching anything on it, but on the mean time we lose the brakes and steering control at high speed on the highway. The dealer has done all the recalls on it in the past two weeks and still can¿T find the problem. I think this is something the government needs to look into it before someone dies and mention this because on my way to san antonio the vehicle die on me at 75 miles an hour and I had my family with me that day¿ I did some research on this vehicle and it seems that there are way too many Dodge vehicles with this stalling problem and the dealers can¿T figure out what's with them¿

Vehicle has less the miles on it. Vehicle low tire pressure light came on. There was excessive vibration in the wheel and body which caused passengers and vehicle to shake. Dash board indicated that all 4 tires needed air. Took vehicle to have proper air pressure added to tires. Vibration remained. Made appointment at bosak Dodge in merillville Indiana. Service writer informed me I may have to pay for service if they didn't find anything. Got called next day that the TPMS light was back on and they added air but found no vibration. I informed service writer that the light was not on when I dropped it off. He informed me it was a common issue. Don't agree.

Durango 6-cyl

  • 250 miles


Since day one of owning the Durango I have had a bad vibration in the steering wheel, larry H miller Dodge in avondale told me I had bad tires so I replaced the tires (@450 miles) then they told me that I had bad wheels so I replaced them with new tires and wheels. I still have the vibration and my vehicle has been in the dealer over 7 times now. Today lhmd service manager explained to me that they took wheels off of a new Durango on the lot and the vibration was worse, they went on to tell me that "all Durango's have this vibration". the vibration can be felt in the steering wheel and could cause loss of control of vehicle if vibration gets worse (or if defective part that is causing vibration fails). I would like to know where I should go from here.
