Fiat Chrysler Defective Diesel Engine Lawsuit
Fiat Chrysler Sued over Allegedly Defective Diesel EnginesJuly 6, 2017
In a Michigan court, a group of Dodge Ram owners has sued Dodge parent company Fiat Chrysler and motor manufacturer Cummins for knowingly selling hundreds of thousands of trucks with defective diesel engines that significantly reduce fuel efficiency and engine performance.
The plaintiffs allege that the companies have known since at least 2014 that the engine component called a selective catalytic converter (SCR) was defective in the 6.7-liter Cummins engines built between 2013 and 2017. The suit alleges that the SCR is prone to clogging, which reduces engine efficiency.
The suit alleges fraudulent concealment on the part of the automaker and the auto parts maker, and takes the companies to task for not having recalled the parts, the engines, or the vehicles in which they have been installed.
If true, the allegations could have potential financial and environmental effects. Any resultant repairs and damages would be costly, as would any fines that could result from the vehicles’ allegedly defective engines producing exhaust in excess of federal emissions standards.
