Hi all
2015 GC DIESEL OVERLAND OWNER
First time posting here. I am one of the owners involved in the class action lawsuit regarding FCAs diesel emissions cheat. Back in March, I had been informed from the law firm that it oughtta be wrapping up sometime this summer.
Out of the blue today, a man called from the dealership i purchased the vehicle from (3 yrs ago) just to ask if "the vehicle is doing ok and if i still like it." He also said I was "chosen" for a special reward and that they wanted to offer me $500 off purchase of new vehicle. I thought it was odd and instantly suspected it had something to do with this lawsuit. I politely declined their shitty offer and told them to have a good day.
It is my assumption that the dealerships are trying to get as many of these vehicles back as they can-- as the lawsuit is now in the process of certifying the class in order to settle.

Anybody out there experiencing this? Or know how any if this works with buybacks,etc??
No settlement yet. Court ruling in March said class action lawsuit can continue in part. The case continues.

EcoDiesel Proposed Settlement
1/10/19 7:21 PM
Here is the latest information provided by the attorney...
We have reached a proposed $330M settlement with FCA and Bosch in the EcoDiesel litigation. The settlement compensates current and former owners and lessees, and provides a software update that brings the vehicles into emissions compliance. The EPA and CARB have conducted extensive testing of the software modification and determined that the modification does not materially affect fuel mileage or performance.

The software update comes with an extended warranty for the greater of (i) 10 years from the date of initial sale or 120,000 actual miles on the vehicle odometer, whichever comes first; and (ii) 4 years or 48,000 miles, from date and mileage of installing the software patch, whichever comes first.

  • Eligible owners who purchased their vehicle on or before January 12, 2017and still own the vehicle at the time the approved software update is installed will receive a payment of $3,075 in addition to a software update and the extended warranty.
  • Eligible owners who purchased their vehicle after January 12, 2017 and still own the vehicle at the time the approved software update is installed will receive a payment of $2,460 in addition to a software update and the extended warranty. If no other valid claim is filed for the same vehicle, an eligible owner in this category may receive the full $3,075.
  • Eligible current lessees will receive a payment of $990 in addition to a software update and the extended warranty.
  • Eligible former owners and former lessees will receive a payment if $990.
None of these benefits will be reduced to pay Class Counsel’s attorneys’ fees or expenses

FYI

The claims process involves six steps:
(1) each class member will receive information about the approved emissions modification;
(2) the class member will submit a claim form online or by mail that contains certain information about his/her vehicle along with required documentation;
(3) the class member's document package and information will be reviewed for completeness and eligibility;
(4) FCA will extend an offer if the class member is eligible;
(5) the class member may accept the offer and eligible owners and lessees may schedule an appointment to receive an approved emission modification at an authorized dealer;
(6) eligible owners and lessees promptly will receive their class member payments after FCA receives proof they have received an approved emissions modification. For eligible former owners and eligible former lessees, the class member will receive their payment after they accept the offer.

The full details of the settlement are available at www.EcoDieselSettlement.com. Additional information can also be found on the Court website: In re: Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep "Ecodiesel" MDL | United States District Court, Northern District of California.
