Among several other car manufacturers, the Car Emissions Lawyers is investigating allegations that put the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group in the line of fire over the suspected use of defeat device technology. Defeat devices are so named for their purpose of overcoming and cheating emissions tests, potentially allowing vehicles to break EU emissions regulations unnoticed. Any car owners affected by emissions irregularities could be eligible to make Fiat Chrysler emissions claims.
With accusations circulating on an international level, we saw fit to launch a group action against Fiat Chrysler on the basis that they may have deceived owners upon the purchase of their vehicle. If you are an affected owner, you could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation, and you can use our online form to confirm your eligibility.
As it stands, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) refute that they have done anything wrong, and we continue to investigate the allegations that they face.
The Fiat Chrysler allegations
The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group, which comprises of manufacturers including Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Lancia, and Ram Trucks, has been subjected to allegations that they have cheated emissions tests. The accusations, similar to those levelled at the first suspected carmaker in the wider “dieselgate” scandals from 2015, Volkswagen, concern the alleged use of defeat devices. This could be by the use of a form of software used in certain car models to reduce the emissions output during testing but allowing emissions output to far exceed regulatory limits when on the road.
If the suspicions are true, the FCA group may have contributed to the release of excessive toxic NOx (nitrous oxide) into our already polluted atmosphere. As a result of the ozone pollution, Fiat Chrysler could be implicated in the worsening of human health, particularly respiratory health, and for potentially causing damage to plant growth and the natural harmony of ecosystems, if the allegations are found to be true.
Fiat Chrysler emissions claims for compensation
Fiat Chrysler emissions claims could allow affected car owners to hold the manufacturer responsible for any alleged deceitful practices that they may have engaged in. Although Fiat Chrysler has vigorously defended claims and the litigation it has faced, so did Volkswagen. In the VW case, it was eventually established by the High Court that the software used amounted to a defeat device.
The Italian government has also faced allegations of failing to enforce emissions regulations with respect to Fiat Chrysler, and could face action from the EU.
We are confident that there is merit to our group action, and it seems that the FCA might have a lot to answer for. In our Fiat Chrysler emissions claims, claimants could potentially be entitled to claim compensation amounting to the full price they paid for their vehicle. Legal precedents on the application of the CPUT, the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations, means that claimants could be awarded between 25% to 100% of the original purchase price of their car.
