When considering the measures put in place by car companies to make sure that their vehicles comply with environmental standards created by the EPA, they have to know what they’re doing. Any slip up in how exactly they handle putting these kinds of controls into use could mean major fines and damage to the brand.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles may have used illegal software emissions controls to pass more than 100,000 trucks and SUVs through emissions testing,” the EPA has recently come out and said. Apparently, FCA has been “asked to explain up to eight auxiliary emissions controls devices on those cars they say help the car pass emissions tests,” as reported by Green Car Reports.

With the revelation last year that Volkswagen was pumping out cars that failed to adhere to environmental standards and hiding it, the situation leads you to wonder if other brands are trying to put measures in place as to mask how their cars are really performing during emissions test.

When that much money is on the line, you can’t count anything out. There’s no way that brands this big are in the dark on if their vehicles do or do not comply to the law. If they should happen to be truly behind of keeping up with emissions, then we get the feeling that this is just the tip of the iceberg in some costly fixes to be made.

Green Car Reports continues to tell us that “both the Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel and Ram 1500 EcoDiesel model haven’t yet been certified by the EPA for 2017.”
