Chrysler is issuing a recall for a small number of vehicles equipped with the new 3.6-liter “Pentastar” V6. According to the automaker a total of 657 vehicles may be affected and could exhibit a loss of power as a result of manufacturing debris left in the engine.

Chrysler saw the problem was caught early on, but not until those 657 models had been shipped out. Models affected include the Chrysler 200, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Journey, Durango, Grand Caravan and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Chrysler says it will be sending out letters to retail and fleet customers in October, but that the majority of the vehicles have yet to be sold.

    HORRIBLE reporting! there is a huge difference between 657 models and 657 vehicles, as Chrysler doesn’t manufacture 657 current models this article leads to false representation of Chrysler. unlike what i have to deal with on other new vehicles, at least Chrysler caught and fixed the problem rather then letting all the the vehicles continue to be built with this recurring problem.
