Interesting experience. I was at a gas station getting ready to fill
up the company's Dodge Durango - 4.7L version. Everytime we fill the
tank we're required to record the mileage for our expense reports. The
milege gets written on the receipt. So I pull into the space, shift
into Park, whip out my trusty Wal-Mart brand ledger and start jotting
down the mileage. The engine is running, and I hear a "thunk" and the
vehicle jolts backwards. I hit the brake, and all is well. No big
deal since I only moved maybe two feet.
That little indicent got me into the habbit of putting the parking
brake on at all times on every vehicle I drive, including my own Acura
- which is something we should be doing anyway. Is this something that
happens on Durangos? We used to have two Chrysler vans and another
person report the same thing happened to him.
How do Durangos generally hold up over the years? I was looking into
getting one for the winters. Just a thought.
