Fiat Chrysler Lawsuit

Fiat Chrysler is at the center of the latest emissions scandal after researchers in both Europe and the U.S. found that Fiat Chrysler’s diesel vehicles produced curiously higher pollution levels during normal driving than during emissions tests. Research suggests that there is significant evidence that the company employed a defeat device, often used to help a vehicle pass emissions tests.

Fiat Chrysler is currently in talks with the U.S. Justice Department to settle the lawsuit, and it has agreed to modify 100,000 vehicles to appease the EPA and the Justice Department.

Affected models are 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Ram 1500 diesel vehicles.

It is currently unclear whether the settlement will reach Volkswagen-level damages, but it is thought that the settlement will be significant, given the number of vehicles affected.
