  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 🤔

  4. Chrysler won't face a nationwide class-action lawsuit for their Uconnect woes. At least not yet.

    A lawsuit filed in Kansas saught nationwide status but the judge ruled the plaintiffs based their claims on Kansas law which cannot govern out-of-state transactions. The case will continue for Kansas owners who purchased or leased a Chrysler vehicle with an 8.4-inch Uconnect system on or after 01/23/2013.

    The plaintiffs claims are something most Chysler owners are familiar with. The Uconnect system freezes, the screen goes blank, and there's no way to control the climate or view the backup camera. The lawsuit said the problems continue even after multiple replacements of the entire system.
