camshaft broken tooth part discontinued
I own a 2010 Chrysler Sebring with the 2.7L engine. I heard a knock in the engine just 200 feet from my home. Upon investigation and troubleshooting I discovered a tooth had broken off the camshaft, part number 4792058AB. I have tried for almost a year to purchase this part. Each time and at every dealer the part was not available. The dealers have told me that the part is on backorder, 450 on backorder. I have now come to find out the part has been discontinued. The dealer in told me that they could fix my car but I would have to bring in the car, at a cost of $3400. Instead of a $300 part to fix my engine I have to purchase a whole new engine. This is ridiculous! How can you discontinue a part with 450 on backorder? This seems like a design failure that Chrysler is covering up by discontinuing a part thus costing the customer $3400 for a new engine.
