FCA Transmission Settlement

GRANILLO V. FCA US LLC
United States District Court for the District of New Jersey; Case No. 3:16-cv-153

Welcome to the FCA Transmission Settlement Website

If you bought or leased a new model-year 2014 or 2015 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Jeep Renegade, 2015 Chrysler 200, or 2015 ProMaster City, a proposed class action settlement may affect your rights.

The parties to this class action are seeking court approval of a proposed settlement involving certain automatic transmissions in model-year 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Jeep Renegade, 2015 Chrysler 200, and 2015 ProMaster City vehicles (“Class Vehicles”). Under the settlement, FCA US agrees to provide a cash payment or trade-in voucher to vehicle owners and lessees who can demonstrate they made at least three transmission-related complaints to a FCA US authorized dealer on or before November 16, 2018. FCA US has also agreed to extend the warranty covering the 9 Speed ZF 9HP automatic transmission of these vehicles. The court must still determine whether it will approve the settlement and its benefits.

Your legal rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in this website.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS
I WANT TO RECEIVE SETTLEMENT BENEFITS

To receive a cash payment or trade-in voucher, you must submit a completed claim form along with documentation from a FCA US dealership showing at least three transmission-related complaints.

The extended warranty provided under the settlement will apply to your Class Vehicle without any action from you.

See Frequently Asked Questions 7 through 13 for more information.

I WANT TO BE EXCLUDED

You may give up the right to receive the benefits of this settlement. This is the only option that allows you to ever be part of any other lawsuit about the legal claims in this case.

See Frequently Asked Questions 14 through 16 for more information.

I OBJECT TO THE SETTLEMENT TERMS

You may tell the Court if you don’t like the settlement. You must remain a member of the Class (you cannot ask to be excluded) to object.

See Frequently Asked Questions 20 through 21 for more information.

I WANT TO DO NOTHING

If you choose to do nothing, you will be bound by the settlement. You will be part of the Class and receive the benefit of the extended warranty. You will give up your rights to sue FCA US about the same or similar legal claims at issue in this lawsuit.
