Exclamation RECALL for 2/12/14 PO1 TIMING CHAIN/TIMING CHAIN GUIDE

Hello everyone my buddy who works for Dodge called me this morning with a Recall for 09-12 Challengers/300's/Chargers its called Recall PO1 for the Timing Chain and timing chain guide. Its Free service so you may want to have you last 6 digits of your VIN handy when calling the service center to see if you qualify.

Does this involve the 5.7L Hemi only?

There's more to all of us than just our cars and mods. We all have a history unknown to most but worth telling to all. What we read and see on here only scratches the surface.

Funny I wonder if they will cover the ones that have broken. I have an 11 and have never heard of this. Dodge is quick to send a super important recall for your seat belt which I get every month but something that can potentially grenade your motor nada...

I to am wondering if they are going to reimburse people. I have to say that I was a true doubter that it was a real issue and not just bad luck for some.
