Over a million car owners sue FCAMay 4, 2020
All car owners who joined the class action lawsuit accused the company of knowingly selling cars with troubled engines.
Hagens Berman Law Firm filed a lawsuit against the FCA concern in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on April 29. Car owners ask servants of Themis to deal with faulty engines of cars that were deliberately sold by the automaker, the media said. We are talking about transport with 2.4-liter engines FCA TigerShark MultiAir II. Such motors consume a huge amount of oil and can suddenly stall on the way. Such a malfunction affected a number of models.
Among them, for example, the popular SUVs Jeep Cherokee (2014-2020 onwards), Jeep Compass (2017-2020) and Jeep Renegade (2015-2020), as well as compact Dodge Dart sedans (2013-2016), Fiat pickups Toro (2017-2020), Ram ProMaster City (2015-2020) freight vans, etc.
The lawyer for car owners who joined the lawsuit, Steve Berman, claims that dealers have ignored the problem. And this despite the fact that such a breakdown seriously threatens safety. The problem with the sudden stop of the engines can be solved: the FCA oil indicator system should inform the drivers that the engine oil is running out. In the meantime, this does not happen, and motorists detect a lack of oil only when the engine finally stops its work.
In the FCA, as reported in the lawsuit, the above malfunction is described as the “norm”. Car owners expect to receive compensation from the company. In addition, in their opinion, the concern must be fined.
