Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is now considering a recall of nearly 1 million vehicles with a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine due to probable excess tailpipe emissions.
Presently the company is sorting out this issue with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
FCA will initiate the recall campaign as soon as it conducts test programs “to define a remedy”, finalizes the details of the recall, and gets the approval of the two mentioned organizations.
Unrelated to this issue, there is another one – class-action lawsuits filed in Michigan and California. They claim that the Tigershark engine can burn oil at a faster rate than normal and stall unexpectedly in Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat and Jeep vehicles.
Car owners can check if their vehicle is involved in any future recall that FCA may announce on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recalls website or Mopar’s owner site.
