I bought a 1999 Dodge Durango SLT 5.2 LTR engine as of 3 t0 4 YRS ago, And In some cases like mine it absolutely does mean it can be an ABSOLUTELY UNRELIABLE & ABSOLUTE DANGEROUS vehicle!!!!! ..Everything that can happen, has happened to this vehicle. The Front differential exploded on the highway 4 miles after I had to put in 4 wheel drive & almost caused me to wreck,I Had to replace the whole front differential axles.. The back (REAR) breaks have never worked since I bought the thing, The Exhaust manifolds lip holes(BOTH) got so hot that the bolts that connect it to the manifold pipes burned off and is now, and has been sitting for a month since I can't keep it together. Right now all three of my front brake lines have rotted into, at the connector from the master cylinder that sends the fluid to the front 2 wheels!!.. That's just the START of all of the terrible danger that it poses to me and other drivers on the road. This vehicle should be considered a complete rec

Do you drive a 1998 DODGE DURANGO?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
