The Allpar members are as usuall ahead of the game. I may stand corrected today.

The pic was a quote of an earlier post that I had made.

Qualifier: NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 5.7L Hemi engine (sales code EZD or EZH), automatic transmission (sales code DGJ) and rear axle ratio 3.06, 3.73 or 3.92 (sales code DMP, DME or DMH) built from August 04, 2008 through July 10, 2012 (MDH 080406 through 071008).

This is a copy of the owner notification letters that should be sent out next week.

This notice applies to your vehicle (VIN: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx).
Dear: (Name)
At Chrysler Group LLC, you can be assured that we are changing the way we look at quality. To prove our commitment to quality, the company is investing in and prioritizing improvements for every vehicle that we build. As part of that commitment, we are also targeting existing vehicles on the road today and contacting our customers to provide these quality improvements, at no charge, that will help to improve your ownership satisfaction.

We are recommending the following improvements be performed on some 2009 through 2012 model year Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, and Chrysler 300 vehicles equipped with a 5.7L Hemi engine and an automatic transmission. Recommended Service:

The engine timing chain guide on your vehicle may fracture. A fractured engine timing chain guide could cause the engine timing chain to break. A broken engine timing chain will result in severe engine damage.

What your dealer will do:

Chrysler will service your vehicle free of charge (parts and labor). To do this, your dealer will replace the timing chain, timing chain tensioner and guide. The work will take about four hours to complete. We recommend that you make an appointment with your dealer to minimize your inconvenience.

What you should do:

Simply contact your Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge dealer, at your convenience, to schedule a service appointment. Your dealer will collect the necessary information to ensure that the appropriate parts are available so your service can be completed in a timely manner. Although not required, we recommend bringing this letter with you to your dealer, when you bring your vehicle in for this service.

If you need help:

Please contact the Chrysler Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-853-1403.

California residents…

The State of California requires the completion of emission recall repairs prior to vehicle registration renewal. Your dealer will provide you with a Vehicle Emission Recall Proof of Correction Form after the recall service is performed. Be sure to save this form since the California Department of Motor Vehicles may require that you supply it as proof that the recall has been performed.
