Considering I use to live in Washington DC, maybe the car just couldn't take it anymore and decided to off itself. Whatever the case, an all-new 2011 Dodge Durango Citadel was in service this week towing a small parade float at the National Cherry Blossom Festival when it began to malfunction.

After seeing smoke billowing from underneath the bonnet, the driver stopped the vehicle and that's when the fun began.

Although some are speculating that its towing capacity was exceeded, I am relatively doubtful given how small the float was.

Do any Spies have any ideas as to what the cause could have been? Maybe Fiat's having more of an impact at Chrysler Group than we originally thought...
