You could only hope that someone with the cash to buy one of these cars and be technical savy to operate its features and have had TC issues would also have access to the internet and be tech savy enough to google or research the problem, join this forum, and post about it. It could only be in their and our best interest.

O.K. going to do a little self correction
we will limit this to R/T production of 68697 units
so we need 686 failures to reach 1%
and there are 29 cases listed so we need 657 more

Ugh...lets expand on this a little.
Of the 68,697 only a small percentage of those owners are members of Challenger talk
Of that small percentage, a smaller percentage are Auto's instead of the non-affected 6 speed manuals
Of that even smaller percentage, a yet even smaller percentage are daily drivers that would hit the 30k mile mark
Of that even smaller percentage, a yet even smaller percentage of those haven't used a tuner to tune out the mds
Then you can factor in the parts guy that said they were getting 20 timing chains a week ordered.
Also factor in the member that said the Dealer who tried to order his replacement heads was told by Chrysler that the heads were on "National backorder"...gee, I wonder why?
You add all that up and we have a freakin' problem here, no matter how much you try and downplay it.
