Fiat Chrysler has agreed to voluntarily recall nearly 900,000 vehicles in the U.S. as a result of an in-use emissions investigation conducted by the EPA.

Owners of affected vehicles will receive notification From FCA when parts are available for them to bring their vehicle into be repaired, and owners can continue to drive their vehicles in the meantime.

Owners who live in locations subject to inspection and maintenance may be required to have the recall performed prior to having the inspection performed.

Due to the large number of vehicles involved and the need to supply replacement components – specifically to the vehicle’s catalytic converter - this recall will be implemented in phases during the 2019 calendar year beginning with the oldest vehicles first.

  • 2011MY - Q1 2019
  • 2012MY - Q2 2019
  • 2013/2014MY - Q3 2019
  • 2015/2016MY - Q4 2019

Vehicles effected are as follows:

  • 2011-2016 MY Dodge Journey (JC FWD)
