    Could a wounded Dodge Dart clutch lawsuit finally be coming to an end? It's certainly been a wild-ride.

    The now five-year-old lawsuit says the clutch in the 2013-2015 Dart can drop and stay on the floor. Stellantis (formerly Fiat-Chrysler when the lawsuit started, formerly-formerly just plain ole' Chrysler) contends they addressed this problem with multiple service bulletins and customer satisfaction campaigns.…

    The Charger's interior door panels have been warping and peeling away from where they meet the window since the 2014 model year.

    And while some owners have been able to replace the issue under warranty there's a handful of major problems according to a new class-action lawsuit:

    1. It takes so damn long because there's a national backorder for parts
    2. It doesn't really matter because Dodge is just going to replace your defective panel with a new, but equally defective panel
    3. They're betting you won't wait around to replace the panel because it can interfere with the side airbags from deploying and locks from activating.…

    Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) owners are worried that their vehicles may not pass the next state inspection. And for good reason.

    Last month, FCA announced that nearly 900,000 vehicles fail to meet emissions standards and will need new catalytic converters. That’s a lot of parts to come up with all at once, so FCA’s plan is to split the recall into stages with older vehicles getting repaired first. Some owners have filed a lawsuit because they will could fail their next state inspection before parts are available.…

    A lawsuit concerning hacking vulnerabilities in Fiat-Chrysler’s (FCA) Uconnect system is headed to trial this October.

    The lawsuit was filed after researchers showed how a Jeep could be controlled remotely through the infotainment system. FCA has called the case meritless and tried to get it dismissed. When that didn’t work they turned to the U.S. Supreme Court. To FCA’s surprise, the court refused to even hear the appeal.

    It’s almost as if FCA thought the were in control of the situation and then suddenly they weren’t 🤔

    A Florida lawsuit says Fiat-Chrysler's (FCA) active head restraint is a little too active for their liking.

    The safety system tries to reduce whiplash by springing the head restraint forward in the event of a crash. However, the plastic brackets keeping the restraint in place are defective and allowing the the restraint to deploy randomly instead.

    The allegedly defective piece of plastic holds a short metal rod that is latched into two metal hooks located on the back of the headrest…

    Like a rushed parent on Christmas Eve, Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) made a mistake when assembling the 3.6L V6 engine for the 2016 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    Some crossover tubes were damaged, and now they're leaking gas.

    "The problem was originally discovered in April 2016 when damage occurred to a fuel rail crossover tube on a 3.6-liter V6 engine. Engineers found 21 engines with damage to the crossover tubes out of 20,000 engines that were inspected."…

    The windshield washer pump in the 2016 Dodge Dart is way too amped.

    In April 2016, engineers were able to duplicate the failure of the [windshield wiper] body control module and in May had identified the cause as transient voltage spikes coming from the windshield washer pump.

    The investigation came after hundreds of warranty claims were filed about the wipers failing. The recalled Darts will need a kinder, gentler pump.
