Interesting. I don’t see near that rate where I live in the PNW. Perhaps snow makes the issue worse.
It is definitely cold weather related. I don't see the issue in Atlanta, but it is very common here is Pittsburgh.
I'd say 50% of the Durangos I see have some sort of race track light issue, either a segment out or a segment dimming. The Darts that gort the race track lighting around here are even worse with huge segments not working.
But yet, I don't recall ever seeing a Charger with an issue.
I've only seen Durangos with the issue.
same here. The only Chargers I see with LEDs out are really old ones.
Funny, I've never noticed Darts with the issue, only Chargers, Durangos and maybe ONE Challenger.
Wow.... I currently live in Arkansas, but lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for the previous 4.5 years. In Alaska there would be snow on the ground from as early as Mid-September all the way through May and -40 degree temps for weeks at a time... I have driven to various cities in Alaska, down through Canada, through the Mid-West, and all through several states of the South. My commute in Alaska was about 20 miles-Highway, and then on the road most days. My commute now is about 25-26 miles and a minimum of 30 minutes in a densely populated area of Arkansas... I have said all that to say, that I have seen Thousands upon thousands of 3rd Gen Durango's on the road and have only seen ONE that had a portion of the race-track lights out.
I currently live right across the state border in Oklahoma in a really small town. There are at least three here with a portion of the tail lights out, probably more. I’ve seen quite a few in Fort Smith and Tulsa too. Odd because if this is a cold weather related issue, this area shouldn’t be especially prone to that.
