Chrysler extends left cylinder head warranty to 10 years or 240 000 KMs

I received a letter from Chrysler Canada today informing me that the warranty period (5 years or 100 000 KMs) on the 3.6L engine left cylinder head has been extended to 10 years or 240 000 KMs.

My 2011 GC has 61 000 KMs on it and no engine issues at all. Reassuring to know that Chrysler is standing by their product.

Anyone in the US get a similar letter?

This is fantastic news.

My 2011 just rolled over 25k kms, warranty expires dec 2014.

Was seriously considering trading it this year, have not received letter, but will be more inclined to keep it now.

Thanks for posting.

Re: Chrysler extends left cylinder head warranty to 10 years or 240 000 KMs

I wonder if they will reimburse me for the car I had to rent while waiting for the part. I got my letter today. Oops too late I bought an extended warranty. Funny how it only applies to the left cylinder head instead of either one.

Re: Chrysler extends left cylinder head warranty to 10 years or 240 000 KMs

Got the letter for my Jeep as well. Really good to know that they are standing behind their product! I do have extended warranty for 7yrs/85k miles. But this will cover the engine over that. So, glad they are doing this.

Not the engine, just the left cylinder head. If the right side goes at 101000 it doesn't apply.

The left one is a common issue. Same as the rear one on a Caravan or T&C.

They have a fix for it but they are only going to replace ones that have the issue. They don't recall product improvement they simply do a "Special Coverage" for the sake of customer satisfaction.

Was there a fix prior to MY2014 since 2014's are not covered?

Re: Chrysler extends left cylinder head warranty to 10 years or 240 000 KMs

Well with the lifetime warrenty (mine or theirs ?) I am not concerned. Has anyone seen "See Warranty Bulletins; U.S. D-14-22, Canada SAB-2014-11, International ID-14-03, Puerto Rico/Virgin Islands ID-14-04 or Mexico BG-22-14 for details associated with the extended warranty."

I check for misfires about monthly and usually see zero with 1 or 2 occasionally but then I rarely load anywhere near capacity even when pulling something. Seem to be few reports this year.

Would be nice to know what happened. A machine tool out of adjustment allowing slop in the valve guide ?
