DECEMBER 2012 -- Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2013 Durango vehicles manufactured April 27, 2012, through September 14, 2012.

At the owner's option, they may take their vehicle to a Chrysler dealer for installation of the label. The service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in February 2013.

NEWS: Chrysler recalls some 2013 Durango SUV's for air bag problem
AUGUST 2012 -- Chrysler Group said Thursday it is recalling 1,600 new Dodge Durango SUVs because some side air bags may not function properly.
The Auburn Hulls automaker said it will recall 1,661 2013 Dodge Durango SUVs — including 1,449 in the United States — to replace occupant-restraint control modules. The recall includes 131 in Canada and 81 in overseas markets.

Chrysler said it is unaware of any associated crashes or injuries with the defect. Most of the recalled vehicles are still on dealer lots.
The automaker will notify dealers by the end of September.

JANUARY 2009 -- Chrysler is recalling 19,024 MY 2005 Dodge Durango vehicles. The fuel tank filler tube inlet check valve may not fully close at the end of refueling. This could allow some fuel to escape from the vehicle through the filler neck at the end of refueling. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank inlet check valve. Vehicles found to have a suspect inlet check valve will have the fuel tank assembly replaced free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. This recall was the subject of a Recall Query, RQ08-005, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation. 09V-003
DECEMBER 2007 -- Chrysler is recalling 576,418 MY 2001-2002 Dakota, Durango, Ram van and MY 2002 Ram pick-up trucks equipped with automatic transmissions. The ignition/park shift interlock system may become inoperative. This can allow the shifter to be moved out of the "park" position with the ignition key removed (or in the "lock" position). This can also allow the ignition key to be removed when the shifter has not been placed in the "park" position. Either of these conditions could allow the vehicle to roll away causing a crash without warning. Dealers will replace the gearshift blocker and bracket assembly. The recall is expected to begin during January 2008. 07V-555
NEWS: Dodge Trucks Recalled
WASHINGTON (AP) — Dec 7, 2007 - Chrysler LLC said Friday it is recalling nearly 600,000 Dodge trucks and vans to address concerns that the vehicles could shift out of park without the key in the ignition.
The recall affects 576,417 2001-2002 Dodge Dakota trucks, Dodge Durango sport utility vehicles and Dodge Ram vans and the 2002 Dodge Ram pickup. In some cases, long-term wear on the gearshift assembly could erode the height of the shift blocker, creating the potential for the vehicle to shift out of park.
Chrysler spokesman Max Gates said there have been nine incidents involving injuries connected to the issue. No fatalities have been reported, he said in an e-mail.
Owners will be notified beginning in January 2008 and dealers will replace the gearshift blocker and bracket assembly.
In the interim, vehicle owners are advised to use the parking brake at all times when the vehicle is not in use, Gates said.
WASHINGTON - March 9, 2007 -- After dozens of reports of fires in Dodge Durango and Jeep Liberty sport utility vehicles, DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group recalled nearly 500,000 vehicles Friday.
Chrysler said it had received 66 reports of fires in Dodge Durango SUVs from the 2004-2006 model years because of electrical overloads in the driver's side instrument panel below the dashboard. The automaker said it was recalling 328,424 Durangos.
There were no crashes or injuries reported in connection to the recalls, Chrysler said.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had opened defect investigations involving the Durango and Liberty.
In the Durango, Chrysler spokesman Max Gates said an integrated circuit in the instrument panel could get overloaded and lead to overheating and affect the interior lighting.
Owners will be notified about the Durango recall in April. The vehicles will be inspected and those SUVs with instrument panels that fail the review will get replacement parts.
The company said if drivers notice problems with the interior lights, they should take their vehicles to a dealer for inspection. In some cases, the interior lights will not properly dim after the doors are closed.
