|08blackrt||My car had, I think, 43K on it when it was done, it had no signs anything was wrong, but it was just about ready to go. It didn't seem any different at all after it was done, and the only way I know anything was changed was the water pump was cleaned up and they showed me the chain. I don't think I'll ever get used to that flimsy looking chain that's on most engines now. I remember the Cloyes roller chains I put on a couple of my engines in the past. No worries about them breaking.|

Thanks for the update, and that's great to hear.
The "tug" went away when I had the P01 done on my '10. Keep us posted on yours.

I picked up my R/T today after the dealer performed the P01 campaign. The car never had any issues with the timing chain, although there was a slight "tug" when the MDS was active at times.
Surprisingly, the guide that was taken off my car was the complete black plastic guide. I thought this was the original design (not being one of the updated parts) and assumed my car had the revised guide from factory? My car was built on October 2012.
The '13s were only recently included in the campaign so I assume FCA figured that the guide might not have made its way on to the late 2012 build cars.
I thought I'd share this in case it might add some information to this thread.
Also checked engine oil (was replaced by the dealer) and coolant (replaced NOT reused) and they were both on spot. Car drives exactly the same with no power loss issues that a few have suffered here after the recall being done due to the timing being a bit off. I will listen to the engine more carefully when it gets into MDS mode to see if I still have the "tug".
Hats off to FCA for fixing this issue
EDIT: The tech said that there were no signs of wear on the guide (I believe he just said that without inspecting and not to have me worried). The guide was on the table and I couldn't take a very close look at it to check for wear signs.
In addition, my car currently has about 41,000 miles on it.

Sadly the next closest ones are managed by the two most recent service managers that were let go from this one. They are on their 4th manager in 6 months and not getting any better.
I'm gonna have to somehow find the time to take it to Seattle to get it looked at as that is the closest competent dealer from what I've been told. Dealers here suck. But, I'll do what I have to, to get someone to listen to me.

These mechanics are idiots

If you haven't had the P01 campaign do everything get it done
The plastic guides wear and the updated part won't. Your '12 would have the black plastic guide
That noise you mention could possibly be the chain with excess slack rubbing on something inside the timing cover
