The Car Emissions Lawyers are representing eligible owners for Fiat Chrysler emissions compensation claims who have come forward and started their case.
For some, it is estimated that eligible victims could claim up to the full purchase price of their vehicle under CPUT (Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading 2008) regulations.
Legal precedents mean that some victims could receive up to 100% purchase price of their vehicle if the manufacturer has engaged in ‘very serious’ prohibitive practices. That means victims could receive tens of thousands of pounds, depending on the make and model of their vehicle. Presently, the carmaker denies that they have done anything wrong, so the action we are taking is to find out whether or not there has been any behaviour that amounts to cheating emissions regulations or not.
Fiat Chrysler emissions investigations
It has been alleged that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group, who own the brands Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, and Ram Trucks, may have used a form of ‘defeat device’ in some of their vehicles. Such devices can cheat emissions tests and allow illegal levels of toxic gases to be released into the atmosphere.
The alleged Fiat Chrysler emissions issued could be extremely damaging, as harmful levels of NOx could be being released into the atmosphere that could have a negative effect on the surrounding environment and on the population’s health. It is important for car manufacturers to be held accountable for their actions where they have engaged in such behaviour, which is why we are passionate about taking action and fighting for justice for the victims of these scandals.
We understand that the carmaker has denied that they have done anything wrong and denies that they have used such devices in their vehicles.
About ‘defeat devices’
Defeat devices can be a form of software that can be used in cars that can recognise when the vehicle is in testing conditions and can then lower the emissions produced so it will pass the tests. During usual driving conditions, the devices could hinder emissions-reducing technology to allow the car to produce illegal levels of NOx gases.
If there is an issue with such devices and Fiat Chrysler emissions outputs, we will find out.
In 2015, Volkswagen’s ‘dieselgate’ scandal came to light and triggered the following actions against carmakers for similar alleged behaviour. If you believe your car has been affected by the alleged Fiat issues, it is time to speak up. We have years of experience with emissions scandals and are ready to help you with your claim today.
