ECODIESEL AEM RECALL
In its settlement with EcoDiesel owners and lessees, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) promised to deliver a recall – known as the Approved Emissions Modification or AEM – intended to ensure 2014 to 2016 EcoDiesels complied with emissions standards without changing any of the vehicles’ performance, safety, or driving characteristics.
Unfortunately, that is not the case. FCA dealerships are overwhelmed with EcoDiesel drivers complaining of a lag in throttle response, acceleration, horsepower, and torque. Not only are owners being cheated out of their truck or SUV’s performance, the lag in response and acceleration presents a major safety issue.
