2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
My husband and I wanted a Durango for years so we decided to purchase one a 1 1/2 yr ago. We did not have any major problems with this vehicle until around 25,500 miles on it. Now we are experiencing stalling periodically, a loud noise in the front left tire/engine under the vehicle area, and a loose felling in the steering. The rack and pinion has been replaced twice and it has been in the shop around 15 days in a 4 week period. I can't imagine that a certified mechanic can not hear the noise in the front and not being able to fix the problem. Not including the fact that the vehicle stalls when you least expect it. Very scary.
The appearance of the Durango is beautiful. The feeling of security while driving it is important when no mechanical issues are lingering.
Gas mileage needs improvement for future purchases. When there is a noise in a vehicle there should be a solution especially if the vehicle is covered under warranty. If stalling is an issue that is serious and could case huge liability claim.
