And since you won't use Autostick, aren't you concerned about this?

Just out of curiosity, what is the TC usage for the 6.1s for the same time periods? Thanks

Good question. Or for the 2005 to 2008 5.7L (non VVT) HEMIs with MDS...

I really have nothing of real value to add except when I test drove a new 2012 Auto R/T it seemed to stay in MDS mode most of the time and the salesdude was very proud of the fact. I asked what he knew about the timing chain issue figuring he would say he'd never heard of it, he surprised me by saying "they've been working on that and I expect the new designs will be integrated seamlessly with current production and repairs will be made to older units as needed." he also added if it were he, he'd buy a 2013 that has the latest technology and possibly some changes vs buying a 2012 new off the lot.

I was waiting to order a specific color in February 13, now after reading this thread I'm wondering if that's smart given the fact I might put 3000 miles a year on the new car since it's not my daily driver and I plan to keep it for a long time.. and I drive like a grandma so the MDS will be working hard..

6.1's don't have VVT, and the timing chain/tensioner assy is completely different

No offense to people like Brampton Builder or ResumeSpeed, but we need somebody like DodgeCares with corporate access on this forum (see ChargerForums and DodgeForum). Over a year and 230 pages of speculation (even parsed with interesting facts and ideas) and we're still in the dark, surprised when someone heard about the issue and pondering whether to buy an automatic, or a Challenger period. I brought the timing chain up to my salesman during last month's test drive too and he had no idea what I was talking about; 20 year-old kid, though, and you really can't trust that they'll tell the truth anyway.

I did buy mine in auto, only drive it in AutoStick for now, and plan to disable the MDS... but unbelievably we still don't know for sure whether that's even the solution. Beyond frustrating but we shouldn't be at each other's throats, questioning our individual car choices or MDS use: the ball is in Dodge's court.
