This TSB is about replacing the 2012 WK2 3.6L engine (international variants). Expensive exercise..

:shock:

That's a pretty massive recall.... You'd be pretty pissed that your new Jeep has to be molested so early in it's life!

Oh well, at least they have admitted a problem and are willing to fix it before it becomes an issue for a lot of owners.

I wonder what the exact manufacturing problem is? Poor castings or machining? Maybe assembly since it doesn't relate to Jeeps in North/South America?

That's an interesting question as I thought all the Penstar engines were produced in the US at the same plant.
