Flores v. FCA US, LLC, Civil Action No. 2:19-cv-10417 (U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan).
This consumer class action alleges that 2015-2017 Jeep Renegade and Ram ProMaster City vehicles manufactured and distributed by FCA US, LLC were falsely advertised and possess defective cooling fans. The complaint alleges that the cooling fans in the vehicles suffer from a defect that causes them to fail prematurely. When the cooling fans fail, they can (and have) caused fires in the engine compartment and caused the engines in the vehicles to overheat and fail. The lawsuit alleges that FCA US, LLC, has known of this defective part for years and has refused to issue a recall and replace the defective engine cooling fans. Instead, the complaint alleges, that there were such a massive number of cooling fan failures that FCA US, LLC, quietly redesigned the part, causing a multi-month national backorder. Despite the redesign of the part and thousands of failures, FCA US, LLC, refused to provide non-defective cooling fans to all class members free of charge as it should have.
