The Chrysler Group LLC is announcing some bad news for customers that have bought some V6 equipped models of the 200, Town & Country, Dodge Journey, Durango, Grand Caravan and Jeep Grand Cherokee, saying that the vehicles may have some loss of engine power caused by debris from the manufacturing machining processes.
According to the Chrysler Group LLC, only 667 vehicles of the models mentioned above will be affected by the recall, all of them being powered by the same 3.6 liter V6 engine.
“The condition was caught early at the plant during a scheduled audit only 657 potentially affected vehicles were delivered to dealers, the majority of which have not been sold”, said the head of Product Investigations and Campaigns, David Hillon.
