I drive a Dodge Durango 2002 and have already~in November~had the gear shift recall done and have now encountered the fluid leak and electrical system issue noted above, as a recall. My car produced a fireball from the engine. Please be careful if you drive this car! I was very fortunate and blessed not to have been hurt when this occurred, but I encourage all owners of this Durango to have this inspected! Please do as it could save your life!

Do you drive a 2002 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.
