This is a crazy story. I hope it has a favorable result on the build quality, but it is a huge fine for FCA.

The fines are tied to legal violations in an array of areas, including misleading and obstructing regulators; inadequate and lagging repairs; and failing to alert car owners to recalls in a timely manner, the people said. The financial penalties aren’t tied to specific recalls, they said.

Yes, very crazy indeed. I have to wonder though, since the Fiat/Chrysler deal was completed around the end of January 2014, did Fiat know what they were getting themselves into... If they did, then kudos to them for going through with things. They're (Fiat) basically paying for sins they weren't originally guilty of.

If not, hopefully this mess doesn't ruin the new partnership.

I think the market expansion being added to the Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep world, with the merger with Fiat, is going to add so much to this auto company. Jeeps will now most certainly see heavy sales in places they've never seen significant sales before.

And it's already given us this new gem of a Jeep family member, the Renegade. Granted, it's a bit of a rough gem for some. I think it's going to really play a big part of their global sales in the years to come.

Hopefully the entire company comes out of this hella-mess a stronger, more quality-conscience auto-maker when they reach the end of this legal tunnel.

Renegade4X4, I sure hope your right, did you find any articles that would lead you to believe this? All the related stories I read had to do with FCA management mishandling the recalls and not spending enought money to have parts for the recalls available.

I hope your right as maybe that would improve the poor quailty.
