Cape Breton Post - - Business -

DETROIT (AP) - Fiat Chrysler says it’s in dis­cus­sions with the U.S. De­part­ment of Jus­tice and the U.S. En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency over claims the com­pany cheated on diesel emis­sions tests.

The EPA said in Jan­uary that FCA was us­ing soft­ware that al­lowed diesel ve­hi­cles to emit more pol­lu­tion on the road than they do in emis­sions tests. The EPA said around 104,000 Jeep Grand Chero­kee SUVs and Ram pick­ups from the 2014-2016 model years are af­fected.
