FCA received approval to sell this year’s model year diesel cars.
The producer has stayed under fire with American and California regulators stating that its older cars had undisclosed emissions controls. That allowed cars to emit too much pollution in normal driving. The company did not support the statement and now wants the software fix it is providing for this year’s models year cars to be the foundation for a fix on older 2014-2016 diesel units.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been adamant that it has not cheated and does not want to be in the same situation as VW is. The EPA and the CARB accused Fiat Chrysler Automobiles of using undisclosed software in 104,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees as well as Ram 1500 trucks in America starting from 2014 and up till 2016.
