More than 2,500 Jeep and Ram owners who qualify for up to $1,000 in restitution should be receiving claim forms to receive restitution. The restitution is part of an Arizona settlement with Fiat Chrysler involving so-called “EcoDiesel” Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram vehicles.
According to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, the settlement resolves consumer fraud claims against Fiat Chrysler of deceptive marketing, selling, and leasing of 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 3.0L EcoDiesel vehicles. Under the settlement, Fiat Chrysler agreed to pay restitution to Arizona consumers, which will result in up to $1,000 for each qualifying vehicle.
To be eligible for a restitution check, consumers must attest ownership and registration and return their completed forms, postmarked no later than November 13, 2019. Restitution checks are expected to be distributed in December or January and consumers will have 90 days to cash their checks.
If consumers have questions or believe they are eligible for a check, but did not receive a claim form, they are encouraged to call toll-free at 1-888-764-8871, Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (Arizona Time).
