Has anyone had there car done, for the recall on the timing chain issue. If so where there any problems when they put it all back together?

Yes, mine is on the list. I think I will wait until the dealer does a couple before I take mine in.

Thanks

Picked the Challenger up tonight after the recall service. Looked OK, except they lost one of the screws that hold the grille to my CAI box. I'll go over it better when I clean it up tomorrow. The shaker will have to be adjusted again, but I expected that.

Just received my notice today. I was getting a little nervous about the chain since my RT just turned 100k this past Sunday. Notice said it is a 4 hour job. Not buying that, but I'm glad they have finally addressed the timing chain issue. Calling for repair tomorrow.

I had mine done a couple of weeks ago. I asked the tech to take his time and it was a two day project. He did great on it though, no complaints since I've gotten the vehicle back.

I did go through and remove most of the cosmetic stuff from me engine bay before taking it in. Partly to keep the tech from having to do extra work, but also so I didn't have to worry about them getting damaged.

Got my notice also last week. If it was a 2 day job, did your dealer offer you a courtesy car while the did the repair........... probably a dumb question, right? I guessing not.

Talked to my dealer today, he's done 5 at about 5 hours average. He will order parts for me, but couldn't tell me when exactly since they can only order so many at a time and they can only do 1 a week? Not that I'm in a hurry but WTH? Rationing?

Since there is a fairly large cost associated with this recall my guess on the 1 set/week (my dealer said that also) spread out across all the dealers is to control the cash flow. This way they have an idea of what they have to fork out and when.

I read my notice Friday, I am a little worried as my R/T is super charged. Hope they can do it and won't charge me extra:SHOCKED:.

The four hour time is probably the number of hours that Chrysler will pay the dealer to do the work. "Real" time will likely be longer.

I've scheduled my car to get this recall done next Monday, 17 March.

I just brought her home after a 10 mile shake down ride. She seems to be running normally. My only complaint thus far is there's a lot of white spots under the hood. I'm not sure what it is, but, I assume it's from the coolant or other materials they used in the job. So, I have some work to do there. Now begins the paranoia!:confused:
Keep on CHALLENGING!
