The complete list of vehicles eligible for the buyback is below. Update: In a statementFCA explains that the buyback offer only extends to owners who have not yet had their vehicles repaired in accordance with the recall. Our original post has been edited to reflect these updated numbers. NHTSA has recorded one death and 32 crashes stemming from the steering issues involved in the three recalls.
FCA admits that it violated the law in the three recall campaigns by failing to fix vehicles in a timely fashion—NHTSA reports that some owners have waited as long as two years for the recall repair. Last week, FCA agreed to recall 1. Just one day later, the automaker agreed to two additional recalls, covering 2. And the automaker has been in a constant struggle with safety regulators over how it handled recalls on Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee models found to pose an increased risk of explosion in rear-end collisions.

Please hear us out on this one. New Car Pricing. Used Cars for Sale. Car Reviews. My Account Saved Inventory.I have babied my Dodge Ram 2WD truck with 76, miles, never pulling a heavy load, changing the oil regularly with a high quality full synthetic oil and this is what I get to show for it The lifter for that lobe was also completely seized up.
I have never heard of anyone ever having to have these major repairs completed on any vehicle with these few of miles. I truly believe that Ram has been aware of this defect of poor quality parts for quite some time and really needs to step up and pay for the repair.
Why would anyone buy a Ram truck when you can not trust the quality of the motor??? This is one of the most important parts of the vehicle! Does anyone know of a Class Action lawsuit to join about this defect problem? How about where or who to call at FCA about trying to get reimbursed for this repair?
This exact issue just happened to my Ram After some research, found many other owners had the issue with 3 cylinder. Then came across someone who has a complaint and it's 5 on my truck too. I have taken extremely good care and maintenance on the truck.
Bought new and only have less then K on it. Also would love to see Dodge pay for the repairs. It's My second new Ram I'm not sure this message counts towards signing any complaints, but I certainly would love to sign any complaints on this issue that Dodge Ram should be rectifying!!!! Common problem after researched. Car engine light, cylinder three misfire.
After diagnosis Vehicle started shaking when driving. Misfire in cylinder 3. I changed the spark plugs and still had misfire issue. Changed the coil pack and still misfiring. From the looks of it, this is pretty common and should be recalled. I think there should be a recall on engine over lifters and cam. Just junk and would never buy another Dodge. All my trucks were Ram but since this I will never buy again. Update from Nov 5, : I think they are junk i have on my ram and first the manifold went then next the lifters went and cam shaft there should be a recall.
Just out of Warranty - unbelievable, same issue as everyone else. Purchased brand new inall maintenance. Hesitation on acceleration, stutter at high speed, obviously misfiring. Took it to a dealer to change plugs, it seemed to drive ok for a day then check engine came on and problem got much worse. Kicker is - now September 2 years later and only maybe 25, miles later, I have a check sigh on again, studded again and this time after a check it is a 2 Cyl misfire, but after a further check they say I have "low Compression in 2" This is a disaster!!!!

SRT vehicles are not named in the recall, at least not yet. All have the MDS feature with automatic transmission, and can encounter sudden, catastrophic engine damage when in fuel-saving mode. See pics. A quick internet search reveals that the Hemi timing chain defect has plagued the affected cars for several years, and message boards had been discussing the failure for some time prior to the official recall often running against strong denials by Dodge and Chrysler techs as well as Chrysler officials.
Of the threads we discovered, the most significant one with over pages can be found at www. Owners of affected cars at ChallengerTalk. Six-speed manual cars are not affected because they are not equipped with MDS, which is Chrysler's patented cylinder deactivation technology. Now that Chrysler has taken ownership of the timing chain defect, the blaming of customers has finally subsided.
Dealers are handling the recall by replacing specific engine equipment under Customer Satisfaction Notification P The affected parts include the timing chain, timing chain guide, timing chain tensioner and spring, pick-up tube and o-ring, heater tube o-rings, and timing cover gasket. Not all is going smoothly with the recall of the timing chain defect.
If your timing chain fails before you get your Hemi to the service department for the recall work, the repair may be drawn out over a much longer period of time due to an obscure provision in the repair procedure that hopes to ignore certain laws of physics. It boils down to dealers wanting to double-bill the factory for one operation and being able to get away with it, while the factory hedges its bet that no damage actually took place.
According to the service department where we took our Hemi Challenger Moss Dodge in Moreno Valley, CAChrysler policy on failed engines is this: Technicians may perform only the recall service work to the timing chain—irrespective of whether or not the chain has broken. They are required to reassemble the car, attempt to start it, and then once engine damage is subsequently confirmed can the engine be torn down again for the far more significant mechanical damage to be repaired.
In our case, all 16 valves were hammered, with leakdown between 20 and 80 percent on all cylinders. New cylinder heads, valves, and springs are being installed with a total down time of at least two weeks. As the 5. And here's the irony: The service procedure is to crank the engine as the first step in the diagnostic process—an act that locks in the engine damage before the first wrench is turned.
There are some interesting consequences to the recall. First, it appears that members on the ChallengerTalk. The lesson here: do not modify your automatic-equipped '12 Hemi under any circumstances while under the ,mile powertrain warranty. The second interesting thing is that disabling the MDS fuel-saver mode with an aftermarket tune appears to prevent the timing chain failure from happening.
That's also ironic, because saving the engine from damage in effect voids the warranty. In fact, anything you do on your own to fix it while waiting for the recall notice will void the warranty. If your car falls under the recall and you haven't had the warranty work done yet, but you still need to drive your car, the consensus at ChallengerTalk. Our dealership says Hemi cars with snapped timing chains and broken valves are coming in faster than running cars with recall notices, which should give you an idea for the severity of the problem.
No word yet if Chrysler is paying for damaged cars that subsequently get in an accident as a result of engine failure, so our advice is to park it until you get a recall notice.

Chrysler Hemi Timing Chain Defect 5. Here's the skinny on Chrysler's massive recall. Johnny Hunkins writer. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter.In addition, owners of more than a million older Jeeps with vulnerable rear-mounted gas tanks will be able to trade them in or be paid by Chrysler to have the vehicles repaired.
Some previous repairs have been unsuccessful, so Fiat Chrysler agreed to the buyback, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Dodge 5.7 Hemi recall
Owners also have the option of getting them repaired, the agency said in documents released Sunday. The older Jeeps have fuel tanks located behind the rear axle, with little to shield them in a rear crash.
They can rupture and spill gasoline, causing a fire. At least 75 people have died in crash-related fires, although Fiat Chrysler maintains they are as safe as comparable vehicles from the same era. Both the Jeep and Ram measures are part of a larger settlement between the government and the automaker over allegations of misconduct in 23 recalls covering more than 11 million vehicles. Besides the civil penalty, which was reported Saturday by The Associated Press, Fiat Chrysler agreed to an independent recall monitor and strict federal oversight.
NHTSA has been involved in vehicle buybacks in the past, but never one of this size. Under the agreement, Fiat Chrysler has to buy back the Ram trucks for the purchase price, minus depreciation. Fiat Chrysler said more than 60 per cent of the trucks already have been fixed, and the company is allowed to repair and resell the trucks it buys back.
The Jeep trade-ins could add to the tab, but they also could generate more new vehicle sales by getting customers into showrooms. The consent order that Fiat Chrysler agreed to requires it to notify owners who are eligible for buybacks and other incentives. Models included in the buyback offer are certain Ram s from to ; the Ram Mega Cab 4 by 4 from ; and the Ram 4 by 4, 4 by 4, 4 by 4, and 4 by 4, all from through Earlier this month, the safety agency held a rare public hearing where regulators detailed a litany of shortfalls: failure to notify customers of recalls, delays in making and distributing repair parts and in some cases failing to come up with repairs that fix the problems.
