Despite its popularity on the road the Dodge Durango is jammed with problems in one of its wheel structure's critical components - the upper ball joints. CBS investigates this issue to discover that these joints may prematurely wear out- 'as early as 15,000 miles', thanks to a design defect. This wearing out can have deadly consequences due to sudden wheel collapses and seperation. Following several complaints about this received by national traffic authorities, the investigation finds that the ball joint problem is actually seen more in Durango's sister model, Dakota.
