Complaint - Service Brakes Air

I WAS TRAVELING ABOUT 35 MILE PER HOUR ON A SUNNY DAY, DRY PAVEMENT, TEMPERATURE WAS ABOUT 78 DEGREES. A CAR ABOUT 30 FEET IN FRONT OF ME HAD STOP TO TURN. I APPLIED MY BRAKES AND THEY SEEM TO GRAB AND LOCK AND MY CAR WOULD NOT STOP. AT THAT POINT I WAS APPROXIMATELY 20 OR SO FEET FROM THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME I HIT THE BRAKES AGAIN, FELT THE CAR SURGE FORWARD AND THEN THE BRAKES TOTALLY TOTALLY LOCKED UP AND I HIT THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. DURING THIS TIME THE BRAKES MADE A LOUD CLUCKING NOISE AND WAS SQUEALING EXTREMELY LOUD. THE POLICE RECORD SHOWS 20 FEET OF SKID MARKS. THIS WAS SCARIEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD IN MY LIFE KNOWING THAT MY DAUGHTER WAS IN THE CAR WITH ME AND MY BRAKES WOULD NOT STOP, EVENTHOUGH I HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO STOP. I HAVE HAD MY 2000 DODGE DURANGO FOR ALMOST 3 1/2 YEARS, DURING THAT TIME I HAVE HAD THE BRAKES AND REPLACED AND LESS THAN 3 MONTHS AGO THE DRUM AND ROTORS REPLACED. I AM DEFINITELY A MAINTENANCE KIND OF PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO MY TRUCK. THERE HAVE BEEN ABOUT 3 OCCASSIONS IN THE LAST 3 1/2 YEARS WHEN I FELT LIKE MY BRAKES WERE ABOUT TO GIVE. THE FIRST TWO RESULTED IN SERVICE WORK ON MY BRAKES. THE FINAL ONE AS YOU CAN SEE RESULTED IN AN ACCIDENT. I HAVE CONTACTED MY INSURANCE COMPANY NOTIFYING THEM THAT OTHER 2000 DODGE DURANGO DRIVERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEMS. MY CAR IS CURRENTLY IN THE SHOP AND MY INSURANCE COMPANY IS GOING TO HAVE A BRAKE SPECIALIST EXAMINE MY BRAKE SYSTEM. THE DODGE COMPANY REALLY NEEDS TO LOOK AT WHAT THIS ISSUE WITH THE BRAKES IN THE 2000 DODGE DURANGO SINCE THIS DEFINITELY DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE AN ISOLATED INCIDENT. I AM KNOW CONSIDERING TRADING IN MY DURANGO AS SOON AS I CAN GET THE FUNDS TO PUT DOWN ON ANOTHER VEHICLE.
