When I turned 16 I went and bought a 2002 Durango SXT 4X4. Being a 16 year-old that lives in the country I tend to be rough on it. I have put about 10 tires on it this year, my fault, I like to take it out in the mud and play around. I also had to put a new radiator in it last month at 55,000 miles. once again my fault, when it landed it went nose first. What I am trying to say is that I have put 35,000 miles on it since I got it. I have taken it out in the mud and locked it in 4 wheel drive a lot. I have had the entire truck of the ground numorous times, and mechanically it has held up great. This thing will go absolutley anywhere. The worst thing about this truck is the gas mileage, considering I'm 30 mile away from a gas station and and about 50 miles from a town that has any fast food or grocery stores (All gravel).

I have owned a 2002 Durango for about 7 years now and have had quite a few problems. My brakes will lock unexpectedly and then will perform well when a mechanic sets foot in it. I have had rotors etc done and front end, but still hear this odd crunching noise in rear end when I back up. Mechanics checked and said no problems with the rear end.
Have lost low and medium heat, and window buttons have quit on two windows.
Now I am having a radiator problem. Check gauge light goes on and then the temp soars and it overheats... belts fine, hoses fine.

I have a 2002 Durango with 138000mi, and have had the brakes replaced 6 times (in 6 mos.) as of today. Yet, on the way home, the front calipers won't release completely, again. Is it a CPU problem?

To: 30,000 lawn ornament,
If you have the dealer bevel your brake pads (knock the corners off the edges) the noise will stop. I do this to all the new brake pads I install, and have had no complaints. Your brakes are not gonna fail, they are just singing to you.
