As 2016 wraps up, the last thing we need is another diesel emissions scandal. Volkswagen's coverup of their NOx-spewing diesel cars made headlines. So. Many. Headlines. And now, according to a recent lawsuit, Ram trucks might be next.

Dodge Ram trucks equipped with Cummins diesel engines have been named in a class-action lawsuit that alleges the trucks emit nitrogen oxide emissions up to 14 times above legal limits.

The plaintiffs say Dodge sold hundreds of thousands of Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks with catalytic converters that wear out quickly due to the alleged defects, costing truck owners up to $5,000 to fix."
