Do you Qualify for Recall Reimbursement?
If you've had a recall on your vehicle and have incurred recall-related costs you'll need to start the reimbursement request process (all on a case-by-case basis).

Jeffrey Tj Fellows Okay so it seems any of the v6's with either a 3.6 i guess that is what it has, or the v8 with the 5.7 is infamous for timing chains to say good bye, save up your money and get a Scat/ or a Hellcat or SRT8 392. that is the next one i gotta find.

I would recommend an upgraded thermostat. I had my oem one go bad and replaced it with another oem and it went bad too, very scary situation after suffering a blown engine from the timing chain problem. So far so good with the new thermostat.
