Chrysler Group LLC to Recall Small Quantity of Vehicles Equipped with V-6 Engines
September 29, 2011
Chrysler Group LLC is conducting a voluntary safety recall of 657 Chrysler 200 and Town & Country, Dodge Journey, Durango, Grand Caravan and Jeep® Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The affected vehicles may exhibit loss of engine power caused by debris from the manufacturing machining processes.
“The condition was caught early at the plant during a scheduled audit and only 657 potentially affected vehicles were delivered to dealers, the majority of which have not been sold,” said David Dillon, Head of Product Investigations and Campaigns.
The Company is not aware of any actual failures in customer’s hands, injuries or property damage related to this issue. Chrysler Group LLC will replace the engines for all affected vehicles. This will be completed at no cost to the consumer or dealer.
All 657 potentially affected vehicles were sold in the United States.
Chrysler Group LLC will begin sending letters to approximately 150 retail and fleet customers in October for a no-charge repair.
