    Read the articles on this situation. It is very clear. The VW violations were far more egregious, affected more vehicles, and occurred for a much longer period of time. VW tune/equipment was several times over the limit and they had a systematic cover up going on at several levels. I still haven't seen competent information on exactly what the violations are with the 3.0L diesel. Under what modes of operation does this occur and to what extent does it go over the limits.

    If you are concerned about fuel mileage statements not being met I doubt this settlement addresses any of those concerns. My understanding is this is all about the tailpipe emissions and not the fuel mileage.

    Now first I want to see what this environmental damage is. Did notice an oil stain on my driveway where a pan of engine oil spilled. Horrible environmental damage there. Wait for the EPA announcement forecast for today and get ready to write your check to the EPA.

    If I had known this before I bought the truck, I would not have bought it, much less paid for it.
    If it turns out that I will only get a check for 2.8K and no buy back choice, I will remove myself from the class action suit and go independent.
    Cool story. If GHG is your concern, buying any truck is not a real option. Look at the percentage changes. The vast sum of GHG emission occurs in the production of the vehicle. The burr in the EPA's saddle is NOx emissions during operational drive modes.

    The BIGGEST differences between VW was advertising fraudulently claims aka VW Clean Diesels !!!!!! FCA never fraudulently made claims of advertising clean diesels only claim made by FCA was the EcoDiesel was highest mpgs in 1/2 ton pick up category and it still IS !!!!!!

    It’s a Economy Diesel not Ecology Diesel like the lawyering associations where trying to imply = 2800.00

    Now that's a stretch. How do you know anyone was misled? It said they failed to "disclose"
    We don't really know all that was in this, but it sounds like FCA turned off part of the emissions junk at hwy speed because it wasn't deemed necessary. We don't really know at this point that the truck did not properly "reduce emissions".

    So, I'm left with the question, for those of us that have a GDE tune, what do we do? I'm thinking that there could be "strings" attached to a refund, such as you get it after you flash your ECM. Certainly we don't want to flash our GDE ECM.

    Affected Owners to Receive Approximately $2,800.00 from civil lawsuit.


    what if you did not sign up for lawsuit ? is this settlement for all ecodiesel owners, or just the ones with attorneys ?

    Generally, in the US, if you have purchased the product you are a member of the class. You have to actively opt out of the class to be excluded. All class action suits differ, but generally follow that pattern.
