When turning on the turn signal indicater the wind shield wipers come on even though they are in the off position. Once they come on they continue to run. On occasion they will turn off when running through a variety of options on the same stick such as flashing the bright light (pull in the stick) or turning on the signal again in the other diretion. There is no rhyme or reason to any of it. This past weekend I pressed the button to start and the wipers went on even though the indicator is in the off position. Then suddenly the radio went on even though we did not turn it on and this caused the wipers to stop. This looks a lot like a major electrical problem and we are not concerned that this might be a totally integrated power module problem which is currently under inviestication for recall.

Purchased vehicle 31 December 2013. Actually got vehicle about six days later. On 22 January 2014, I put the vehicle in park at the end of my driveway so I could check the mail. While walking back to the vehicle form the mailbox, the vehicle starting backing up a hill on its own. I had to run next to the vehicle, hanging partially inside the cab, to attempt to shut off vehicle. Vehicle would not shut off. I had to push down emergency brake with my hand in order to get vehicle to stop. Vehicle also has used active braking feature and the active braking alarm has sounded to inform me that I was too close to a vehicle, though there was no vehicle in site (this has happened 3 times). Vehicle randomly starts on it own. Vehicle also remote starts on its own. Sometimes the vehicle states it is not in park when it clearly is in park. Vehicle has went from park to drive on one occasion as well. The vehicle back hatch opened on its own while driving down the highway. My belongings fell out all in road. My husband was driving the vehicle at the time. Vehicle fails to accelerate correctly when I press the gas pedal intermittently, sometimes from a stop but usually from a slow speed. This causes other drivers to come close to rear ending me because I am going slower than the speed of traffic (because my foot is depressing the gas petal but the vehicle is not reacting). Chrysler has sent an inspector to inspect the vehicle, and he found nothing. This vehicle has serious safety issues. I reported them 3 weeks after purchasing vehicle, but Chrysler will not buy back vehicle. They have implemented safety features on the 2015 for some of these exact same issues, yet deny the issues existing.

Durango 8-cyl

On approx July 16th my check light engine came on. The car is brand new with 3K miles. I took it in July 26th to the dealership where I bought the truck and was told the oil pressure switch is faulty, but the part is on back order indefinitely. They proceeded to tell me that the car is safe, but if something else goes wrong I won't know because the light is already on. They also told me to call Chrysler myself, which was extremely insulting and dealership takes no responsibility. Reluctantly, I did call and that too does not help. The part is not available and nobody can give me any answers. I don't believe Chrysler is taking this liability seriously and putting my whole family (with young kids included) at risk. I feel like the whole electrical system is slowing down as response time to nav, door locks, etc. This customer service experience has been the worst I have ever seen. How can they let me drive around with a known risk and no answers. Given the check light engine is on, some add'L features don't work (auto start, etc). Clearly there is an issue if they cant get the part, it must be happening with many vehicles.

While driving after leaving a store, the vehicle sounded a warning chime and then all of the electrical displays on the dash went dark. The vehicle downshifted into what seemed 4th gear from 8th gear and sudden deceleration was nored. The windshield wiper turned on and the center radio/climate display would flash on and off. The brief message that was displayed on the dash before it went out said something to the effect of, "do not change gear, do not turn off vehicle, drive directly to destination, by turning car off you may not be able to start it again". we drove to the dealership and they ran a diagnostic where they found several computer faults. The dealer had the vehicle a total of 11 days and changed the body control module. We got the vehicle back and three days later the same thing happened again. Worried that if this happened while driving down the interstate at speed, there could be a possible loss of control with the sudden downshift.

Vehicle was being driven home by customer when she noticed that the vehicle began to hiccup and sputter while turn a corner. After turning, the vehicle stalled. She was able to safely pull to the shoulder. Upon further inspection, the vehicle ran out of fuel. Despite the fuel gauge displaying "empty" she stated that no audible warning chime and that the "low fuel" indicator was not prominently displayed (states that it blends in with the rest of the information on the multifunction display).

2014 Dodge Durango. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle hesitation during acceleration. The dealer performed tests, and found nothing wrong with the vehicle. However, the dealer did perform a PCM update. Two days later, the vehicle stalled in traffic. When the consumer applied the accelerator pedal, the vehicle made a strange noise and the check engine light illuminated. She turned the vehicle off and back on again, and the sound stopped, but the check engine light remained lit. While returning to the dealer, the vehicle stalled again.
