Wouldn't risk it
My 2001 Dodge Durango only has 56,000 miles and it died on a very busy interstate in Atlanta a few weeks ago. First the oil pressure gauge dropped, then it started making a horrible noise. We had the car towed to our mechanic that we have used for years, only to find out that he could not get any parts to our vehicle because the dealership could not release them to anyone. We had the Durango towed to the Dealer. They told us there was sludge in the engine and we needed a new engine. They told us to contact a representative from Daimler Chrysler. We tried, but the lady who answered the phone would not even let us speak to anyone. She told us it was due to improper maintenance, end of story, did not even ask us if we had receipts for regular oil changes. The new engine cost $6000, but you can bet that we saved the old motor.
This is happening far too often. There must be something wrong with these engines.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
