How Could a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit, if filed and successful, could offer drivers a permanent fix for their engine problems, as well as compensation for past repairs and loss of vehicle value.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org would like to speak with anyone who owns or leases a 2015 to 2021 Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep vehicle and experienced any of the following problems:

Loss of power
They’re investigating whether a defect is causing the issues listed above and posing a safety risk to drivers and passengers.
If a defect is suspected, it’s possible that a class action lawsuit could be filed against the manufacturer. Before the attorneys can even consider taking legal action, however, they need to talk to drivers who experienced these problems firsthand.

How Could a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe the problems listed above may stem from an underlying defect that will not be truly fixed even if the vehicle is brought into the dealer for service.
If filed and successful, a class action lawsuit could force Fiat Chrysler to find a permanent repair, provide money for past repairs and offer compensation for loss of vehicle value.
The following is a sample of complaints posted online by Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler drivers who experienced ticking and knocking noises with their vehicles [sic throughout, emphasis ours}:
If my 200 is at idle,roughly at 750 RPM, I can hear a faint knocking sound. It happens regardless if it is in D,R,N or P. It is only audible if radio and ac are off. No warning lights,and I just had an oil change done at the dealer. The battery was also replaced recently. I took it to the dealer three times over the past 5-6 weeks and they cannot pin point to exactly what the problem is. Dealer told me they cannot reproduce the issue and Chrysler will not do anything about it since there is no warning lights…” — mop200, 2015 Chrysler 200 driver, 200forums.com
It's at dealer since yesterday. They verified the noise…it just makes a very audible knock from outside and noticeable from the inside over medium to small bumps - either side... The suspension and bushings all look good to me. Knocking started all of the sudden, not gradually. Anyone ever have this issue?” — Black Knight, 2015 Chrysler 200 driver, 200forums.com
I heard a ticking noise coming from the right side of the engine…We could only hear it form outside the vehicle. This appears to be a common issue. The mechanic knew exactly what it was when I told him we had a ticking noise in a Durango…” — 2015 Dodge Durango driver, CarProblemZoo.com
I have a 2015 grand Cherokee limited with 87000 miles, and 3.6l. I have recently noticed a ‘ticking’ sound coming from right side of engine that appears after engine is warmed up, It ‘ticks’ faster when accelerating. It is not noticeable inside of car, also comes and goes.” — gpff214, 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee driver, JeepGarage.org
