My motor just blew. My mechanic said he had never seen anything like it before. It was the #8 rod. If this happened to you, you need to file a complaint at (888)327-4236 safercar.com You will need your vin#.
I keep reading the same complaint so I'm posting to hopefully get some people calling in to the government. So far they have lodge 32 complaints on this matter. I asked what is the magic number & there is none. When they notice a pattern they will investigate.
If there are enough complaints the gov will issue a recall & will make them reimburse us.

I'm in the same boat as you all. 77,000 miles (easy local miles) and I found out today that the engine is shot. Pistons, crank shaft and all. Dodge is worthless. Called them myself and they have no known issues with Durango's and in fact, and in their opinion, they're the best running trucks in the industry. Where's do I file a complaint with the government?

Call the 888# in my previous post....it only takes a few minutes. You will need your Vin number.
This has been financially devastating for us; the truck is a total loss.
Best of luck,

I did file a complaint with them. I forwarded the information Todd has after taking his broke motor apart. Here is Todd's link. https://sites.google.com/site/blownuphemi/
I think the louder people complain and to more agencies then maybe the government will force them to fix the problem. But YOU HAVE TO CALL Dodge as often as possible. I am going to call after this message is. Contact me if you have any questions. Lynn
