Fiat Chrysler to recall more than 860,000 vehicles for emissions problems, EPA says  1 Week ago

Source:   USA Today  

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will recall more than 860,000 vehicles in the United States over findings from emissions investigations, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The issues, apparently unrelated to the company's massive diesel emissions scandal, affect a range of vehicles, from passenger cars such as the Chrysler 200 to the Jeep Compass SUV.

An EPA news release described it as a voluntary recall of 862,520 vehicles as a result of "in-use emissions investigations" conducted by the EPA.

"EPA welcomes the action by Fiat Chrysler to voluntarily recall its vehicles that do not meet U.S. emissions standards," EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said in a statement. "We will provide assistance to consumers navigating the recall and continue to ensure that auto manufacturers abide by our nation’s laws designed to protect human health and the environment."

A message seeking comment was sent to a Fiat Chrysler spokesman. The automaker is currently awaiting the results of a criminal investigation into its diesel emissions case, where it is expected to spend more than $790 million to resolve cheating allegations in the civil case involving approximately 100,000 2014-16 Eco-diesel Ram 1500 pickups and Jeep Grand Cherokees. 

"EPA will continue to investigate other FCA vehicles which are potentially noncompliant and may become the subject of future recalls. Owners of affected vehicles will receive notification from FCA when parts are available for them to bring their vehicle in to be repaired. In the meantime, owners can continue to drive their vehicles," the release said, noting that recall would be implemented in phases this year.

The vehicles' catalytic converter will need to be replaced.

Here are the affected vehicles, per the EPA:

Older vehicles will be replaced first, followed by newer models. Here's the schedule:
