If you guys want to gripe about defects then I think FCA should fix the freaking water pump design as well. Way more folks with early and multiple water pump failures than lifter failures. My 5.7 JGC now has over 100k miles on it and so far so good on the lifters but it is on its 3rd water pump.

Since you've only put 3K on it over the past 3 months...that cam issue didn't happen suddenly. It had been going on for a time.



You may have recourse or goodwill adjustment if the sale wasn't "as-is" terms.



If this was through another dealership, perhaps not a CPO, but you could ask.



After all, you didn't own the vehicle for the first 6 years, 31k...
Hal, thanks. I thought the same thing that it was going on for a while, no lifter noise until I changed my oil late Feb. unfortunately, I purchased from a non FCA dealership, John Kennedy Subaru in Plymouth Meeting PA. I also purchased it As-is. add I thought I was getting a steal with the low miles.

Neither FCA nor the dealership is willing to do anything. Pretty crappy if you ask me.

I have never received a notice for the timing chain on my 2013 R/T...the stealership did recently perform the alternator recall on my car but they are not showing anything for the timing chain?? I only have a little over 20,000 miles on the car but I don't want the motor to grenade when the timing chain goes and it's just outa warranty too of course...financially there is no way I could afford that if the motor goes south. Just lovely....

Yep...The Bacon Hauler got a new camshaft at 90K miles, though it was actually hauling bacon back then and not yet under my stewardship...

The drivetrain has to have a specific final drive ratio to get the recall. Any car with the manual transmission is not affected, same for those 5.7L+A8 cars. It's mostly 5.7L+A5+3.06 cars, with some 5.7L+A5+2.65 cars possibly sprinkled in. You can check the outstanding recalls yourself on their website. If you car doesn't show to have the recall due, you're good to go.

odds are the 'Hauler had hundreds of hours of idling time and probably had conventional oil used and that engine has the equivalent of 200K+ on it with all the idling hours plus however it was used in service
