Emissions

2013 Land Rover LR4

California tends to have more protections or stricter standards than other states in certain areas—for example, in pollution and emissions. The complaint for this class action alleges that Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (JLRNA) has violated California’s emissions control parts warranty law by not listing all the high-cost parts of its vehicles that should be covered under the emissions warranty.

2015 Mercedes Benz C-Class Car

Car makers are required under the California Code of Regulations (CCR) to provide a seven-year, 70,000 mile warranty for “high-priced,” “warranted parts.” This requires that they identify to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) the parts that are “high-priced” and “warranted parts.” However, the complaint for this class action alleges that Mercedes Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) has not accurately and comprehensively identified all parts of its vehicles that should be so classified.

Clairton Coke Plant

USX Corporation, doing business as US Steel, is settling a class action regarding its coke plant in Clairton, Pennsylvania. The complaint alleged that certain emissions from the plant—pollutants, air contaminants, and noxious smells—occurred because of the company’s conduct. It claimed that the emission have interfered with the use and enjoyment of homes in the area surrounding the plant. 

Navistar Truck

Navistar International Corporation and Navistar, Inc. have agreed to settle a class action about their 2011-2014 trucks equipped with MaxxForce 11- or 13-liter diesel engines. The complaint alleged that the trucks had defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) emissions systems that produced more soot and heat than engine components could handle, leading to failure of the components.

2016 Jeep Compass

What’s worse than being told that your vehicle needs crucial repairs? It’s being told you cannot get them immediately or possibly even in time to renew its registration. The complaint for this class action alleges that that’s the position in which Fiat Chrysler (FCA US, LLC and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, its parent company) has left many consumers, because of emissions problems with certain of its vehicles. The complaint alleges breaches of warranties and violations of state consumer protection laws.

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

This settlement plus a Consent Decree resolve both a class action and Department of Justice (DOJ) suit against Fiat Chrysler and Robert Bosch companies concerning 2014-2016 Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles that have 3.0L EcoDiesel engines.
