FCA To Discuss Diesel Emissions Settlement

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will start settlement talks next month triggered by customer lawsuits over the automaker’s excess diesel emissions, Autoνews reports.

The U.S. Justice Department sued the automaker in May for allegedly using illegal software that hid the excess emissions of almost 104,000 diesel vehicles.

Speaking in court, settlement master Ken Feinberg said that auto supplier Robert Bosch GmbH will also be involved in the October 12 settlement talks.

Fiat Chrysler believes it will be able to fix the diesel emissions of 2014-2016 vehicles by using the updated software from its 2017 models. According to Justice Department lawyer Leigh Rende, both the federal government and the state of California are nearing an agreement on a testing plan to see if this proposed fix will prove effective.
