Class Action Filed Against Fiat Chrysler and Cummins Inc

LONDON and TORONTO, ONTARIO, Jan. 12, 2017 /CNW/ - On December 23, 2016, Siskinds LLP filed a proposed class action lawsuit against the manufacturers and engine suppliers of certain diesel-powered Dodge RAM 2500 and Dodge RAM 3500 heavy duty pickup trucks.

The action relates to an alleged conspiracy among the defendants to equip these trucks with catalyst systems that are not durable and that cause the trucks to consume more fuel and emit higher levels of nitrogen oxides than advertised and allowed by law. It is also alleged that these systems cause the catalytic converter used in these trucks to fail prematurely.

The proposed class action seeks to represent all persons or entities who purchased or leased a diesel-powered Dodge RAM 2500 (2WD, 4WD), model years 2007-2010; Dodge RAM 2500 (non-SCR systems, 2WD, 4WD), model years 2011-2012; Dodge RAM 3500 (2WD, 4WD), model years 2007-2010; or Dodge RAM 3500 (non-SCR systems, 2WD, 4WD), model years 2011-2012.

If you purchased or leased one of these trucks, please contact Siskinds LLP by phone at (800) 461-6166 ext. 4221 or by email at elizabeth.willatt@siskinds.com.
