DaimlerChrysler Complaint - Dodge Durango 2004 Hemi
At 83000 mi. my 2004 Hemi Durango broke a vavle spring on the #1 cyl. This caused a bent vavle, bent pushrod, damaged the piston and valve guide. According to a local Dodge dealers service department this has been a common proble with this motor. They even have an upgrade kit to fix it. I have now been told the Head is a non-machinable part (read throwawy) and will cost an additional $2,000 on top of the $1,700 already quoted. Dodge will accept no responsibility even knowing that this problem is a persistent one. Those of us who purchased the first gen of Hemis are screwed. I will never purchase a Dodge or Chrysler product again. In the past I have been a loyal Dodge buyer, no longer. No wonder they are insolvent.
