They didn't specify if they had the parts for it or not, but I suspect they wouldn't have scheduled an appointment unless they had the parts in stock, or were sure they would be here by then.

I know that FCA was fined some time ago for not completing recalls in a timely manner.
They did make noticeable improvements to their handling of open recalls after this ruling.

It is yet to be seen how quickly they can put this recall U90 behind them. Ramping up supply of this very expensive (precious metals) and complex part will take time. The supply chain is still delaying access & logistics. Dealers will probably have to order each one discretely(?). Attempts have been made to fix this by modifying the PCM software, but the 'fix' has necessitated new hardware, the mani-verter.

Interesting. It’s been a week now and still haven’t heard from them. Hopefully sometime next week. It’s not really an important urgent recall like the W84 recall was to me but I’d still like to get it done.

Anything concerning the EPA, NHTSA & the possible violation of emission laws is urgent.

While we are on the topic of recalls & the corporation's desire to complete ALL open recalls, this was posted here as a reminder to check your VIN# for recalls.
If Chrysler doesn't know that you own the car or you have moved without updating your postal information, you may not be getting this very important information:

I just picked up my car after the dealer took care of the U90 as well as the W84 recall that hadn't been addressed before I purchased the vehicle. Driving it home I didn't notice any difference at all.

It may be that the warranty office hasn't submitted the paperwork yet?

So I’ve noticed that ever since I got this u90 recall done, my mpg has significantly dropped to 18mpg. Has anyone seen this huge drop in their mpg since having the recall done?
Also, I don’t drive my car very often I only drive to work and run errands if need be. My job is only 5 minutes away from my house BUT I’m thinking it can’t make my mpg drop down to 18mpg and it keeps going down. This has to be from the recall? Any thoughts?

I work from home and don't drive my car that much, but I did take it out this weekend and drove 100 miles and back to the Adirondack mountains. Gas mileage was the same as before, mid 30s.

I felt around town driving MPG has been affected. Road trips my car still gets high 30's.
Definitely dropped off for local driving and stop and go traffic.
I will assume that many people complained about oil consumption. However FCA denied that is the problem and stated that this recall is emissions related.
I suspect that engine timing has been changed to allow better low end torque, however I am not positive. Feels that way to me.
Just back from another road trip to North Carolina. Car returned excellent fuel mileage. Oil consumption is down.
