Milberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential violations of law by Fiat Chrysler, relating to the following vehicles:

  • Dodge Ram 1500, 3.0 Liter Diesel Engine (Models 2014-2016)
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee, 3.0 Liter Diesel Engine (Models 2014-16)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today issued a notice of violation accusing Fiat-Chrysler of installing and failing to disclose engine management software in the above-two Dodge and Jeep models.

According to the EPA, the software increases emissions of the nitrogen oxide pollutants (Nox).

This notice of violation recalls the high-profile Volkswagen diesel “defeat device” scandal that resulted in more than $10 billion in liability for VW and a criminal guilty plea by VW.

The EPA said it is “investigating whether the auxiliary emission control devices constitute “defeat devices,” which are illegal.” The EPA investigation is being coordinated with the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
