Oh my. Good luck. Ours is still running great, but we're still under 20k miles.

Same symptoms as when it happened the first time. Dropped it off Monday morning without an appointment and had it back by 5pm! Running like a champ again(for a year anyway! lol)

I take it this is the 3.6? And that's pretty impressive that your dealer can swap out a head that fast, with no appt. The ones around here aren't that good, lol. Of course, practice makes perfect, and this is a known issue.

was it covered by warranty even though it was past the 3/36 period? if not, how much was it?

Our '12 Laredo already had the replacement but concerned it may happen again (like with the OP) after the warranty period is over.

Powertrain is 5/100, isn't it?

Man, I hope we don't have any issues! Ours is a 2012, but I think the build date was later than the suspected problem ones. Of course, that's if they really fixed the problem in the later builds, lol.

Mines a '13 & I'm wondering the same thing about the fix. I guess only time will tell on that, along with the long term reliability of the Pentastar. (fingers crossed) But I'm not laughing.
