What Is The Chrysler Diesel Emissions Scandal?
The Chrysler Diesel Emissions Scandal revolves around allegations of deceptive practices during emissions tests for their diesel vehicles. The company is accused of utilizing "defeat devices," specialised software that manipulates test results to present their cars as cleaner than they truly are.
In July 2020, Fiat Chrysler (FCA) made headlines when unexpected searches were conducted at their offices by authorities from Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.
These searches were prompted by allegations that Fiat and Chrysler’s engines were emitting harmful pollutants in violation of regulations.
Currently, FCA (Chrysler’s parent company) is facing a substantial £5 billion lawsuit for allegations of employing "defeat devices" in their vehicles.
It is estimated that nearly half a million vehicles in England and Wales, produced by the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group may be affected.
In the United States, FCA reached a settlement agreement of £614 million in 2019. The US Justice Department accused them of utilizing unlawful software to manipulate emissions test results.
What Does The Chrysler Diesel Claim Relate To?
Our panel of Chrysler emission solicitors aim to pursue a claim that aligns with similar cases filed worldwide. The focus of the claim centres around the allegation that Chrysler may have misled their UK customers concerning the diesel emissions of their vehicles.
Reports suggest that the affected vehicles might have suffered from compromised fuel efficiency, resulting in Chrysler owners experiencing lower miles-per-gallon than what was initially advertised.
The potential damages sought in this claim include compensation for any depreciation in the vehicles' value following the dieselgate scandal, as well as general compensation for any grievances caused.
Our panel of Chrysler Emissions solicitors will thoroughly assess various aspects of the case, including:
- Examining whether there was a breach of contract by the dealership
- Evaluating the potential breach of contract by the manufacturer or financier
- Investigating the possibility of a violation of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008
- Exploring the option of a claim based on deceit against Chrysler
The Environmental Impact
NOx contributes to various respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain and smog. Pollution from cars is the biggest contributor to NOx in our air.
Air pollution is estimated to cause up to 36,000 premature deaths in the UK each year.
The WHO estimated that in 2016, 600,000 children died from acute lower respiratory infections caused by polluted air.
Affect on Crops
High levels of nitrogen dioxide are harmful to vegetation - damaging foliage, decreasing growth or reducing crop yields.
Why Should I File My Chrysler Diesel Claim?
The team at ClaimExperts.co.uk often gets asked, "Why should I care?" It is vital to consider not just the compensation you deserve but also the importance of holding major car manufacturers like Chrysler responsible.
If it is proven Chrysler is guilty, it shows their deliberate act of deceiving people regarding the harmful emissions of their diesel vehicles, all for the sake of maximising their profits. This potential deceit has resulted in a higher level of NOx pollution in the UK than initially believed.
Here are additional factors to contemplate when considering a claim against Chrysler for potential false information regarding diesel emissions:
- Possible depreciation in the market value of your car.
- Nitrogen oxide (NOx) is detrimental to children, adults, and the environment, and can even lead to premature death.
- The performance of Chrysler vehicles may have been adversely affected over a prolonged period.
- Chrysler customers may have incurred increased fuel expenses and maintenance costs.
- Holding large corporations accountable for their potential deception is of utmost importance.
What Are Chrysler Defeat Devices?
Chrysler faces allegations of installing "defeat devices" in their vehicles, which are software programs intended to manipulate emission results during regulatory tests.
These devices have the potential to help Chrysler vehicles pass rigorous laboratory tests by artificially reducing emission levels.
However, outside the controlled testing environment, these vehicles may emit pollutants that far exceed the legal limits. The utilisation of defeat devices constitutes a violation of emission regulations and betrays the trust of consumers.
Which Chrysler Models Are Affected By The Diesel Emissions Scandal?
The Chrysler emissions claim is still in its infancy, meaning investigations are ongoing.
Our legal panel is initially focusing on vehicles that meet the following criteria:
- Diesel Engine
- Manufactured between January 2008 and December 2018

How much compensation can I receive for a Chrysler Emissions Claim?
The exact amount of compensation for a Chrysler diesel emissions claim is still to be decided. However, our panel of Chrysler emissions solicitors believes that you may qualify for a potential claim of up to 75% of your vehicle's value.
It is worth noting that such claims are still relatively new in the UK. However, comparable claims against Volkswagen in the USA and Germany have resulted in substantial compensations for vehicle owners.
Over 100,000 UK Emissions claims have now been settled and paid out in the UK.
If you owned multiple Chrysler diesel vehicles between 2008 and 2018, you have the option to file separate claims for each vehicle.
