Never heard of a dealer doing that. If they tried to pull that BS on me me they would end up paying me to shut up and go away

stealthes 2010 RT Auto in Black, 11,000 miles. I had mine done on April 1st at the dealer I bought it from on 11/09/10. They are a small dealer in Brighton, MI. I really like them and they have done a good job on my oil changes and are generally careful with the car. All went well.

Anyway, the funny thing is that when they were attempting to drain the radiator as part of the recall fix, the drain plug stripped and they had to give me a new radiator. No deductible even though I am past the 3 year bumper to bumper. They did charge me $ 40.00 to flash with new software. Said it would be worthwhile as if it needed to have a CEL diagnosed down the road. I was a little surprised but okay.

hemib5blue I called dodge up and they told me the same thing if they scratch my car and if it took more than 3.7 hours on it I would have to pay for it.I end up hanging up on them.

no way that dealer would ever touch my car.. wonder what part of recall or customer satisfaction action they don't understand? Dodge would get a call about that one while I looked for another/better dealer service..

GOTAHAVAHEMI My timing chain replacement experience, 2010 R/T, 28K:
Called to set up an appointment to get it changed 5 weeks ago and they said that they can't order any until they get at least three customers on a special order parts list FIRST. Got the call early last week that the parts came in. Set up an appointment for Thursday early morning. Thursday late afternoon comes and they tell me that Chrysler is messed up with the time it takes to do this job so it will be well into Friday before they get the job done. 3:30 Friday, the car is finished.

Get the car home and its spewing out a lot of coolant. Called the dealership and took it back out bright and early the next Monday morning. Waited and waited then they told me that my radiator has a leak and its just a coincidence because where they worked to replace the timing chain, wasn't anywhere close to the radiator! The cost will be just under $700.00! I argued with them about the "coincidence"and they finally put me on an extended warranty thing so it was $100 out of pocket for me. After 4 hours...the car is finished and I asked to see the old radiator and all they wanted to do with that is show me a couple dark photos on someone's phone. I asked again to be able to see the old radiator and then after another 10 minutes, was able to go back and look. I couldn't see anything that looked like corrosion but they said it was there but they had no idea where it was leaking!

I wish I wouldn't be so paranoid with these things but they don't do much to help the situation.

randycat99 Where's the guy that was on his 2nd (or 3rd?) chain repair? If that guy gets this recall repair and can still lose his chain, that will be the true test for the new parts...
