1. Chrysler is trying to wiggle out of another active head restraint lawsuit.

    The automaker's lawyers point to technicalities in the case that don't hold up in the Arizona Consumer Fraud and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Acts. Another approach they could take would be to actually do something about the restraints that keep randomly smacking people at the base of their skull.…

  2. A second lawsuit has been filed concerning Uconnect defects in the 2017-2019 Chrysler 300 and Pacifica.

    Much like the first, the plaintiffs claim the system is nothing but an endless series of reboots and headaches.

    The plaintiffs say the Uconnect 8.4A system is still defective after multiple replacements. And that there's at least 17 technical bulletins about the 4th generation Uconnect system, but none of them seem to actually do anything productive.

    The case, Pistorio, et al., v. FCA US LLC, was filed in Michigan.

  3. There's something seriously wrong with the 8.4A and 8.4AN Uconnect systems and a lawsuit wants Chrysler to do something about it.

    Namely because the defects limit access to backup cameras, navigation systems, and climate control.

    But also because having the system freeze and endlessly reboot is super annoying. Full stop.

    The plaintiffs tell the familiar tale of bringing in their vehicle multiple times and having software updated and parts replaced. And yet, the problems still exist and dimish the resale value of their cars.

    The case, Gerritsen, et al., v. FCA US, LLC, et al., was filed in California.

  4. A lawsuit concerning hacking vulnerabilities in Fiat-Chrysler’s (FCA) Uconnect system is headed to trial this October.

    The lawsuit was filed after researchers showed how a Jeep could be controlled remotely through the infotainment system. FCA has called the case meritless and tried to get it dismissed. When that didn’t work they turned to the U.S. Supreme Court. To FCA’s surprise, the court refused to even hear the appeal.

    It’s almost as if FCA thought the were in control of the situation and then suddenly they weren’t 🤔

  5. Is that a light at the end of the Takata recall tunnel?

    Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) says they’ve entered the _ fourth and final stage_ by recalling 1.6 million passenger-side inflators. The bulk of the vehicles are in the US and include the 2010-2015 Chrysler 300.

    FCA has replaced nearly 4 million inflators in a series of recalls dating back to 2014. The defective part if responsible for at least 23 deaths and 300 injuries.

  6. How's this for a review?

    The government says Chrysler's electronic gear shifter "appears to violate several basic design guidelines for vehicle controls." They go on to say it isn't consistent or easy to use. Tell us how you really feel.

    Despite all that, they have closed their investigation because Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) has agreed to recall more than a million vehicles and update their gear shifter's software.…

  7. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) recently recalled a whopping 4.3 million vehicles because of their dangerous Takata airbag inflators.

    This includes Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and even a few Mitsubishi trucks.

    This latest round of recalls has been split into what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is calling "zones" across the country. See the full list of recalled vehicles.…

  8. Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) is recalling 1.1 million vehicles with electronic gear selectors.

    While the system is working as it was designed, it's the design that's the problem.

    "A driver should know the gear-selection based on multiple sets of indicator lights, unlike normal shifters that use a gear-selector position. However, hundreds of drivers have caused their vehicles to roll away because of not realizing the vehicles aren't in Park."…

  9. If it ain't broke, you can trust automakers to try and fix it.

    That's exactly what's happening with some Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) vehicles. Someone high up in the FCA food chain decided it was time to swap out the dependable gear shifter for something a bit fancier.

    e-Shift is a monostable electronic assembly that removes the grooves and tactile feedback of a traditional gear shifter, and replaces it with something much more confusing. The result? More and more Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep owners have no idea if their car is in drive, reverse, or park.

    The new shifter has led to an increasing number of vehicles rolling away after the driver exited. How e-Xciting.…
