I would have to disagree with it being the nature of a diesel. I have owned different diesels since 1995 and this is the first one that has had any throttle delay. I almost got hit a couple of times when I first got it pulling out and waiting for it to respond. I had to completely change my driving habits!!!part of the throttle "delay" is just the nature of a diesel. When you step on the throttle of a gas engine, your opening a throttle plate letting in air, diesels don't have a throttle plate, it relies on how much fuel is injected. It is the turbo that needs to spool up and start pumping air into the engine. Any turbo charged diesel* with little to no boost pressure can barely get out of it's own way.
Call Lieff-Cabraser law firm. They are the ones handling the administration of the settlement. They are not FCA's law firm. We need to give them all our complaints so they have more info to fight this for us.Contacting FCA and their '833' number is completely useless.I had the update done on May 10th, took it back in on June 6th due to the dead pedal when the truck is cold. Not weather temp but engine temp. The dealer said they couldn't replicate the issue and I told them I was going to file a complaint with FCA either way and that I knew it wasn't the dealers fault but I have to go through the process to file a complaint. I called and filed the complaint and received a call within 24 hours from an FCA advocate. He called my dealer and we arranged for me to drop the truck off. Dealer amazingly duplicated the issue but no codes/errors so what can they do. They still have the truck until the 24th for additional testing. I highly doubt anything is going to happen but I want FCA to know I'm not happy with the tune. I know it's not FCA's decision but who am I going to complain to? I might contact the EPA or CARB to file a complaint but they don't care about the consumer.
My suggestion is if you have any issues or even the slightest change in vehicle driving then report it. My service advisor showed me a document that the complaints have made it back to FCA and the engineers are looking into it. This was a hand written note on the back of the service write-up at the dealer. I didn't get a copy and don't know if I will when I pickup the truck on the 24th.
