VISIBILITY/WIPER

8/28/2014 - EDGAR, WI
I HAVE A 2006 DODGE DURANGO, BOUGHT IT USED ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. ABOUT A YEAR AND HALF AGO, APPROXIMATELY MARCH OF 2013, THE VEHICLE STARTED TO STALL WHILE DRIVING. IT HAPPENED AT ALL SPEEDS AND AFTER IT HAPPENING MULTIPLE TIMES WE FIGURED OUT THAT IT HAPPENED WHEN IT WAS WET/RAINING OUT. THIS IS EXTREMELY SCARY AND DANGEROUS WHEN GOING 70MPH ON THE HIGHWAY...TO HAVE YOUR VEHICLE JERK NUMEROUS TIMES AND THEN COMPLETELY SHUTOFF (AKA NO POWER AT ALL!). WE HAVE SPENT A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS SINCE SPRING OF 2013 TRYING TO FIX THE ISSUE. WE WORKED CLOSELY WITH OUR DEALER TO FIGURE OUT THE EXACT PROBLEM...FIGURED OUT IT WAS ELECTRICAL (POSSIBLY WHEN THE WINDSHIELD WIPER ARE USED...)BUT THAT WAS ABOUT AS FAR AS WE GOT. SOME OF THE THINGS THEY FOUND AND/OR FIXED OR REPLACED ARE AS FOLLOWS: WIRING THAT WAS FRAYED, RE-GROUND NUMEROUS WIRES, REPLACED A HANDFUL OF SENSORS, RESEALED CONNECTIONS BETWEEN ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS AND MAIN MODULE (AS WELL AS RESEALED THE BOXES THEMSELVES SINCE WATER WAS FOUND IN THEM), REPLACED THE ELECTRICAL MODULE ($2K), AND REPLACED ENTIRE ELECTRICAL BOX(WHICH INCLUDED HAVING TO RE-WIRE)...FOUND A USED ONE SINCE BRAND NEW WOULD HAVE BEEN $1200! . I HAVE RECENTLY SEEN THAT THERE WAS A PETITION TO THE GOVERNMENT TO INVESTIGATE (AND HOPEFULLY RECALL) VEHICLES THAT HAVE SITUATIONS SIMILAR TO WHAT I HAVE DESCRIBED ABOVE BUT THEY REFERENCE VEHICLES MANUFACTURED 2007 AND FORWARD BUT OUR 2006 IS HAVING THE SAME ISSUES!! SINCE IT HAS BEEN TO THE DEALER LAST (LESS THAN A MONTH AGO) WE HAVE NOT HAD THE PROBLEM BUT THERE WAS A STRETCH OVER THE WINTER WHERE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN AT ALL EITHER SO I AM NOT CONVINCED IT IS FIXED...IT SEEMS THE DEALER MECHANIC IS ABOUT OUT OF IDEAS AND SO ARE WE...

VISIBILITY/WIPER

8/24/2014 - CARBONDALE, IL
WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT I TRIED TO USE MY BRIGHTS, BUT THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS WOULD KEEP COMING ON INSTEAD. WHEN THE BRIGHTS DID COME ON THEN THEY WOULDN'T TURN OFF. THERE ARE ALSO TIMES WHEN I USE THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL THAT THE RIGHT SIGNAL WOULD COME ON AND THE TWO SIGNALS WOULD FLICKER BACK AND FORTH.

7/24/2014 - SOUTHINGTON, CT
2006 DODGE DURANGO. I HAVE 2006 DODGE DURANGO LIMITED 5.7 LITER HEMI - I BOUGHT USED CAR SALESMAN IT IN DECEMBER 2012. IN FEBRUARY OF 214 WE STARTED HAVING A PROBLEM WITH THE ENGINE CUTTING OFF WHILE DRIVING AFTER READING SEVERAL DIFFERENT INTERNET FORUMS I DISCOVERED THE ENGINE FAILURE WITH MY DODGE DURANGO WAS A COMMON PROBLEM. LIKE OTHERS I HAVE TAKEN IT IN TO OUR MECHANIC'S BECAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT HAD COME ON. WE ALWAYS GOT OIL CHANGES AND REGULAR MAINTENANCE DONE AT OUR MECHANIC'S BECAUSE WE THOUGHT THEY WOULD KNOW THE CAR BEST AND BE ABLE TO INFORM US OF ANY IMPORTANT RECALLS OR POSSIBLE PROBLEMS. I ASKED HIM ABOUT THE PROBLEM, HE IN TURNED TOLD ME THAT HE KNEW ABOUT THE DODGE DURANGO ENGINE FAILURE PROBLEM. HE ALSO SAID DODGE KNOWS ABOUT IT, BUT THERE HAS BEEN NO RECALL FOR THIS PROBLEM. I AM AFRAID THAT SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED ON THE ROAD BECAUSE THE ENGINE TURNS OFF AT ANY TIME. IT IS A SAME THAT DODGE IS PULLING THE SAME THING AS GENERAL MOTORS HAS DONE. PLEAASE LETS FIX THIS BEFORE SOMEONE DOES GET KILLED. SO I AM HERE WITH MY 2006 DODGE DURANGO PARKED IN MY DRIVE JUST WAITING FOR RECALL. IT IS GETTING CLOSER BECAUSE YESTERDAY THEY JUST RECALLED THE 2005,2006,2007 JEEP BECAUSE CHRYSLER SAID ON TUESDAY THAT IT WAS RECALLING AN UNDISCLOSED NUMBER OF OLDER JEEP S.U.V.S TO CORRECT AN IGNITION-RELATED STALLING PROBLEM SIMILAR TO THE DEADLY FLAW THAT HAS CONSUMED GENERAL MOTORS THIS YEAR. HOW ALSO OWNS DODGE SO I KNOW THEY KNOW ABOUT THE DODGES PROBLEMS. AT THIS POINT MY SENATOR RICHARD BLUMENTHAL OFFICE CAN NOT DO A THING, BECAUSE I HAVE NOT BEEN HURT OR KILLED AS OF YET. IT FEELS LIKE.
