I have had the Dodge Durango in the shop twice now for issues dealing with the oil light and sludge in the engine. I took it just after 7 months of ownership to the dealership because my engine/oil light kept coming on and would not go off. After three oil changes, and being told that the engine had sludge in it, it finally went off. But not for good. It came on regularly thereafter.
Just a year later, I had it back to the dealership (a different one). It was towed this time. When I got it to the dealership they told me that the engine was full of sludge and that I needed to produce receipts for oil changes. It has been three weeks now and it's still in the garage.
Sludge seems to be a common issue with Dodge Durangos. I am having a difficult time believing that so many people can have the same issue.
The warranty will not cover my damage, and Chrysler is pointing the finger at the customer versus the car. So I owe 26k on a vehicle that is less than 2 years old, and needs the engine replaced.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
