RE: 2005 Durango Oil Leak
Well, problem solved - looks like the dealer spilled oil all ove rthe engine when they last changed it. It continued to drip for three weeks, and be sprayed all over the back every time it was driven.
So, after owning it 8 months (I also own a 2004 Ram 2500 CTD; bought from the same dealer), I traded the Durango on a 2006 Ford Super Crew. This may be seen by some as a drastic move - but what really helped make up my mind was the amount the Durango had depreciated in the 8 months I had it. I quit buying cars years ago because of their lack of value when they leave the dealer's lot. Trucks (and most SUVs) do not normally loose value as quickly as cars. But this Durango did.
I could see that my equity (traded a paid-for 2000 Expedition on it) was quickly disappearing. So no more Durango issues for me.
- saw the beginnings of a recall for the Durango on the web this morning - replace the wiper motor.
