Fiat Chrysler recalling almost 900,000 vehicles on emissions

2014 Dodge Avenger

The Environmental Protection Agency has announced Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will voluntarily recall 862,520 vehicles in the United States.

The EPA said Wednesday that it will continue to investigate other Fiat Chrysler vehicles that are potentially non-compliant and may become the subject of future recalls.

The US-Italian manufacturer said the EPA's announcement had "no safety implications" and no "associated fines" were levied, the Reuters news agency reported, adding it reflected a "new policy for announcing routine emissions recalls".

These include the 2011 to 2014 Chrysler 200, Dodge Avenger, 2011 to 2016 Dodge Journey, 2011 to 2012 Dodge Caliber, and 2011 to 2016 Jeep Compass and Patriot.

The EPA said the discovery was made through routine testing carried out by the agency and the automaker. Supplying these parts to the dealership then replacing the catalytic converters takes some time, but on the upside, FCA started contacting customers in February 2019 to advise them of the needed repairs.

U.S. Drops 'Occupied,' Refers to Golan Heights as 'Israeli-Controlled'
The U.S. and worldwide bodies have never recognized the territory as Israeli, instead referring to it as occupied by Israel. Israel says a previous such unit was established in the Syrian Golan under the command of Samir Kantar and Jihad Mughniyeh.

The recall covers almost 863,000 US vehicles and 103,000 Canadian vehicles, Fiat Chrysler said.

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said the agency welcomed the voluntary recall.

However, given the large number of vehicles included in the recall, the campaign will span the entirety of the 2019 calendar year. That means owners of the above Dodge-, Chrysler-, and Jeep-brand vehicles won't be able to register their cars in the Golden State without returning them for the necessary fixes. California said Fiat Chrysler's "own data and test results confirmed that the catalytic converters in these vehicles were malfunctioning".

The US government has stepped-up enforcement of vehicle emissions rules in recent years after Volkswagen AG admitted in September 2015 to intentionally evading emissions rules.
