There are a couple of GCs I'm looking at and both have not had their approved emissions modification done. Does that mean I'd be eligible for the $3500 payout? I've checked on the Official Mopar Site | Service, Parts, Accessories & More site and neither car has been recalled and modified yet. Both are REALLY small dealers with hardly any online footprint and heck one wasn't even listed as a diesel car.

So would I get some cash back if I were to buy one of these? Also, does Bosch send a separate check or just the one from FCA?

I’m not sure you can make a claim at this point. I think there was a deadline that already passed. Not sure though. You can probably find the answer online if you look.

@emiguede thanks for the prompt response, but it looks like I have time, according the FCA:
Submit a valid claim by February 3, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. HST
Complete the AEM by May 3, 2021

So if I buy it this weekend, I have plenty of time to submit the claim and get it taken care of.

Theoretically, you should be eligible for the settlement payment. The check (or both checks depending on which option you choose) will come directly from FCA in a very inconspicuous envelope so have fun opening every single piece of mail over the next few months :)
You won't get much help from the FCA settlement call center when you try to check on progress. They're going to say they don't have a record of you performing the AEM update at the dealership... it's not a great process.
My suggestion would be to use that money to buy an ecm tune.

Thanks for this and good point on the tune. As I mentioned, I've owned a few diesel vehicles and actually self-tuned a couple of them. Not sure what kind of OBD2 enabled tuning options are available, but if I do with a GC I'd probably just contact the folks at Malone tuning and see what they might have available.
