Chrysler Group is recalling nearly 700 model-year 2012 Chrysler 200, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Charger, Dodge Durango, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey and Jeep Grand Cherokee models built between August 31 and September 13, 2011.

All affected vehicles are equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, which may potentially experience connecting-rod bearing failure due to manufacturing debris left inside the engine block during assembly.

Connecting-rod failure could lead to a seized engine and loss of vehicle control. No customer incidents have been reported due to this defect, which was detected during a quality audit of Chrysler’s Saltillo South Engine Plant.

Due to the recent manufacturing dates, most affected vehicles are on dealer lots or in transit to dealerships, and won't yet have been delivered to customers.

Chrysler will replace the engines of affected vehicles when the recall begins in October.

Owners will be notified via first class mail, but those with questions or concerns can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403. Questions may also be directed to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline, which can be reached at (888) 327-4236.

  1. MB and GM have works there, too. Sad that someone forgot to flush the sand out of castings. Very basic.
