FCA To Recall 1 Million Vehicles For Excessive Pollution

FCA’s emission woes will now involve a recall once they develop a fix for the offending faulty engines.


  • The recall involves the 2.4-litre Tigershark 4-cylinder engine.

  • Internal testing at FCA has found that the engine pollutes in an excessive manner.

  • The use of the engine dates back to at least 2013.


FCA has come under scrutiny over the last few years, like most other major carmakers, for cheating on emission regulations. FCA’s paid hundreds of millions in fines and will recall thousands of vehicles. This round involves the heavily-used 2.4-litre Tigershark 4-cylinder engine which pollutes excessively.

The story, which is shared by Michigan Live, says that FCA is currently working with government officials, including the EPA, on preparing a recall. Before doing so, FCA wants to first identify the affected vehicles and prepare a fix.

“As this population ages, some vehicles exceed in-use emission requirements, depending on drive cycle and mileage,” Fiat Chrysler said in a statement.

For the moment, owners have not been notified however the recall is forthcoming. Of the many vehicles involved in this file, we find the Jeep Compass, Cherokee and Patriot, Chrysler 200, Dodge Dart, and Journey. It is still in use on a handful of current FCA vehicles from all brands.
