Keller Rohrback L.L.P. Investigates Claims of Emissions Fraud in “Eco-Diesel” Ram 1500 & Jeep Grand Cherokee
December 20, 2016
Keller Rohrback L.L.P. is investigating claims of emissions cheating in “Eco-Diesel” Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles marketed and sold by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee light-duty vehicles use selective catalytic reduction (“SCR”) to control NOx emissions. According to reports, these Eco-Diesel vehicles can detect variables that are only present during dynamometer testing; the cars engage different emissions control profiles during testing than when on the road. This method may constitute a “defeat device” under the Clean Air Act, and owners and lessees of these vehicles may have been misled by Fiat Chrysler’s representations that these vehicles were environmentally friendly and complied with applicable emissions requirements.
Keller Rohrback L.L.P., a leading consumer protection firm, filed one of the first lawsuits against Volkswagen Group and its subsidiaries related to its diesel defeat device vehicles. Since then, hundreds of concerned consumers from around the country have contacted Keller Rohrback to find out what they can do to help ensure that Volkswagen and other carmakers are held responsible by compensating consumers and/or fixing polluting cars.
