Thanks
No. You didn't miss anything, I just assume they fix it on the line immediately. I can't imagine them not. It would cost a helluva lot more to do it later.

I hope it has otherwise it will probably delay all cars.

While the fix is for the V8's, they can just get out V6's out in the meantime.

My 2007 Dodge Charger R/T Daytona has 2 batteries. 1 in trunk and 1 in engine compartment. Never found out why there are 2 but selling for camaro so I guess it really doesn't matter to me anymore. Anyone know if they are changing things on production line to nip this thing in the butt?

Solstice any Sky have their battery up front on the right side...just behind the front wheel well.
the HHR and Cobalt have the battery in the back though so in you terms they must be sports cars....

All Corvettes from 1968 to 1982 had them in the back..

Would be nice if someone with an SS could take a picture of the problem area so we have a better idea what it looks like
