There have been 6 recalls on my car. I have had my name on the waiting list at my dealer, only to be told it could be about a year. I keep getting recall letters as I'm waiting for one thing and no parts available for another. I always have children in my car and feel extremely unsafe to drive everyday. The weather is getting dangerous and one of the recalls is on my brakes. I was told, "don't worry, it should be ok until the winter. " well, the winter is here and I still have about 6 months left on the waiting list. How is one supposed to drive and feel safe, knowing my car can "stall without warning", have an "under hood fire" or have my "brakes fail" at any moment while in driving? what's even worse is, there's nowhere to turn because everywhere I call "sorry maam, there aren't any parts. . " great! now I'm lost and risking my life on a day to day basis. Help!!!.

The vehicle stalls/loses power while driving down the road, it gives no warning and once the vehicle loses power you lose control of steering and come to an abrupt stop. This leave the vehicle stranded wherever you are with little to no way to safely pull to the side of the road or highway. This is an ongoing issue with this vehicle, it has been into the dealership multiple times and they have continuously failed to find or solve the issue. It is extremely concerning that this vehicle is ultimately putting my family in grave danger as the times that the vehicle has broke down have been in the middle of busy intersections. The forums and web searches online appear to prove that this is a common issue with Dodge yet the manufacturer is unable to solve the issue or put out a recall in regards to the problem. This is not only endangering the lives of my family but potentially the lives of many other unsuspecting owners/families.

This is the known issue with tipm failure, the car just stalled and lost all power and would not start back up. The engine would turn just fine when starting but would not start. Had it towed to my regular mechanic and he let me know today that it is the tipm which is currently unavailable with long wait times.

The 2011 Dodge Durango started having issues with failed starts. It would take multiple instances to get vehicle to start. Sometimes the the fuel pump would continue to pump even though engine was stopped. This causes a very smoky burning smell coming from exhaust and engine. Took car to dealership and they report the issue is a faulty tipm module. The part is on back order but vehicle is unsafe due to potential issues with stalling while running. Repairs estimated at $1200.

We attempted to start our vehicle, but the engine would not start. After several minutes vehicle started but stuttered, as if their was no fuel going to the engine. There had been no engine or service lights at the time. I researched the issue online and found that many Durango and cherokee owners have experienced similar issues, and the cause was the tipim. I took my vehicle to the dealership and they tested it, and found it was a problem with the tipim, which was failing to engage the fuel pump. Luckily our car was parked at the time the problem started. My wife generally drives this vehicle with my two small children. Our warranty ended at 36000 miles, so it was not covered. My options were to replace the tipim for 1200 dollars, or pay 428 dollars to have an external relay installed to bypass the faulty tipim (Chrysler star case #s1308000399). We chose to have the bypass installed. Vehicle is running fine at this point, but we are worried other issues (air bags deployed etc) will be a future problem.

The problem first manifested itself in an occasional difficulty starting the vehicle, typically after it sat overnight. Upon pressing the start button the starter would engage but the engine would not start. Pressing the start button again to stop the cranking and then re-pressing the button would get the engine to start. Weeks would sometimes go by without the problem recurring. Around the middle of July 2014 the problem started to get much worse, the car sometimes not starting multiple times during the day even after short stops. Around the end of July my wife had the problem happen to her, got the vehicle started, but as she backed out of a parking spot the vehicle stalled in the traffic lane. After that incident I took the vehicle to a Dodge dealership where they "cleared several fault codes" and sent me on my way. Three days later the vehicle once again wouldn't start, but the "reset and repress" tactic would work and the vehicle would run. Around August 7 2014 the problem got much worse. The vehicle took multiple attempts and 1-2 minutes to get running on several mornings, now though the vehicle would stall once started and before moving. Once running, in gear, and moving the car would run fine. Car failed to start then each morning Aug 15-17, taking 1-2 minutes each morning and multiple stalls. On afternoon of August 17, 5 minutes after making a dealer apt for next morning, I was driving at about 10 miles per hour and the engine died completely, power steering and brakes went out as well. Only after 3 minutes did finally using the remote start function on the key fob get the vehicle to start and run, this on a very busy roadway blocking a lane of traffic. Next day vehicle would not start at the dealer either, they diagnosed a bad tipm module and offered me a new module for $1200 or a "relay kit" for $587. New module cured problem for now.

When driving the car automatically stalls while in drive so I have to put it into neutral then back into drive and then it drives again. This has happened about 4 times I have taken the car back to the dealership and they seem to think and tell me they found nothing wrong. They say no warning lights were on. I explained to them that no warning lights appeared when this happens.

Driving on the NJ turnpike the engine light suddenly came on and then the engine locked up. The truck is regularly maintained and has not had any accidents prior to this. The car is not even 7 full years of age yet. Called Chrysler and they refuse to help out due to age and miles. How does a car in great running condition just stall and die while driving?.

Has occurred multiple times. Initially my 05 Durango would stall when pulling into parking spaces. Has progressed to normal driving conditions at around 35 mph while turning the engine will shut off. Occasionally the rpms will jump up and down too. Engine idles around 500rpm. When this first occurred there were no warning lights illuminated. I just don't feel like this is a safe vehicle at this point in time and based off of the other reports, Dodge should investigate and repair at no cost.

Vehicle stalled out on me during a heavy rain. I was going about 60mph on the highway, when vehicle started to shake. About 5 minutes after heavy rain, I lost all power and had to pull my vehicle off to the side of the road. I waited about 30 minutes and rain began to slow to a drizzle. Vehicle cranked right up after that. This is a very dangerous situation as I could have been rear ended on the highway. I have looked into this issue as I have had rough idles and stall outs when in automatic car washes. The issue seems to be with the cowl and a replacement cowl is available through the manufacturer at our own cost. If this issue has been addressed as a defect on an oem part then why should the consumer who has already paid for a vehicle be liable? I hope that this is more thoroughly investigated and it does not take the fatality of an unsuspecting consumer for issue to be addressed.

My vehicle stalls with no notice. No rpm loss. No warning lights. Just stalls. This is going to cause a serious accident. The first time this happened I was making a left turn into my drive way. The next time while slowing friom 35 mph to make a left turn onto a side street. The last 2 times I have been in heavy traffic having it stall when merging into the turn lane. I have serached the internet and find numerous complaints of this very same issue. Not sure why Chrysler has not stepped up and addresssed this issue.

Vehicle stalled at 60mph. Speed and tach went to zero. Vehicle wouldn't start. Would start after cooling down about 20 minutes. Would stall again. Same thing over and over again. Finally it stalled for good. Had it towed to Dodge dealer. Dealer said the problem was the pcm. Paid $2000 to have pcm installed with a new ignition coil. It lasted about 4 hours and 200 miles and it stalled again. Samething over again. Had it towed to another Dodge dealer paid an additional $260 had another ignition coil installed and it still doesn't run right. The dash warning lights come on intermittantly, the security system engages for no reason and continues to stall. Dodge can't seem to find the cause of the problem, can't fix the problem, or simply doesn't care. My vehicle currently won't start and is grounded. All this after almost $2500 repairs from Dodge that didn't fix the problem. I have all the repair invoices from the dealers.
