And here is the time frame of when they were built and the approx number affected. My was born 2 days before the end of the time period of when they noticed the problem. See the attached picture.
I meant to call the dealship today about this but forgot. Something that all should know. I found this on line as I am not the original owner so the first owner must have got the notice. Dodge now knows I own the car so should get mailings now on these kinds of things.
