Chryslers V6 Pentastar Engine is crap. I can say this because I have one and this engine has had major component failures from 5000KM onward. We also know from the Chrysler tech's that ours is not the only engine with major engine issues but others have had camshaft, harmonic balancer and crankshaft issues. Ours is in a 2011 Grand Cherokee and Chrysler is taking the approach of replacing our engine piece by piece as it continues to break down every few weeks and our out of pocket costs and stress mount. dealing with customer service is like getting a kick in the face and the dealership treats us like we have a disease. They keep telling us this new Pentastar engine is amazing, an engineering miracle etc...all while we continue to pay for a broken down piece of crap that is always in the repair shop. Sorry Chrysler, we don't buy your "miracle engine crap" and hope no one else does either.

Chrysler is probably the only auto on the market that may improve with a merger with Fiat. As quipped Click & Black, "What do you get when you cross a Fiat with a Chrysler? A large car that won't start!"

They will work the bugs out of the engine all manufactures have problems with new engines. Chrysler done more than any other manufacturer in the last couple of years than any body else.

What's that saying?.."Never buy the first model year of anything".
Wishing you better luck.
