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.
Will the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests work? Or, will automotive manufactures find a way to cheat the new tests (again)?
The Volkswagen Emissions Scandal brought to light the stark realisation that car manufactures are capable of – and happy to – cheat. There was nothing accidental about the “dieselgate” scandal, which was an intentionally-conceived mission to ensure VW Group vehicles passed emissions testing by cheating.
Many are understandably wondering whether the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests will really work.
We’ve been waiting for it to happen – several other manufactures have already been investigated by the authorities on suspicion of misleading emissions data following on from the Volkswagen scandal.
Following internal investigations, Mitsubishi Motors has admitted their employees have manipulated emissions data which has led to their offices in Japan being raided by the authorities.
In a scandal that has an almost identical feel to the Volkswagen Emissions scandal, bosses at the Japanese car giants have released statements confirming that employees have misrepresented data.
