Stuff happens. The FCA engineers specified a certain requirement in the hoses and vendor contracted to supply these hoses failed to meet them so they will be on the hook for this recall and replacement along with FCA.

There's no question the quality of FCA cars in general has improved overall and they're building the best cars right now that they ever have.

Have ALL the Hellcat owners been notified already that there's a chance their car might blow the engine?

"Ladies and Gentlemen, we're having a slight problem with the oil lines, so you might experience some light turbulence and then explode."
"We're gonna explode?! I don't wanna explode!"
It is strange, but Kia recently did the same thing. Got a notification about some recall that could lead to engine failure in April and I don't believe they started repairing the cars with the issue until the end of May.

*Traded* 2010 Charger R/T AWD. Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl exterior, black leather interior, front chin spoiler, Flowmaster Original 40's, tinted windows.

*Current* 2013 Charger SRT8 Super Bee. Black. Flowmaster Super 40's, and 20% tint all around.

The replacement part most likely won't hit dealer inventory until 9/22, hence the gap in getting the recall fulfilled.

I was the focus of a recall in 2004 on my Vovlo Penta engines in by boat. Oil line failure, Volvo replaced the lines and gave the motor a clean bill of health. Failed again, this time they sent a new motor, crated the original and sent to their plant for analysis. Turns out the high pressure oil line by the manufacturer had no barbs on the fitting, hence the line was slipping off. Volvo told me that the original design and testing from the supplier was fine. They can only assume that the vendor is continuing to meet the specs. You can take random samples to verify. Seems like they had a bad batch. I'd give FCA a bit of slack now and see how they handle the issue and the quality of their customer service.
