This is an ongoing investigation and pending class action lawsuits against Chrysler.
These class actions are on behalf of all current or former New Jersey, Florida, Illinois and California owners and/or lessees of model year 1998 through 2004 Chrysler Concorde, Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Intrepid and Dodge Stratus vehicles equipped with 2.7 liter V6 engines.
These class actions allege that Chrysler knowingly sold the vehicles to class members despite Chrysler's knowledge that the engines are predisposed to the formation of harmful sludge and deposits that can cause oil starvation and very serious and expensive damage to engines, and despite defendants' knowledge that these engine problems are caused by the defective engine design and/or incorrect oil recommendations in the owner's manuals and maintenance manuals supplied by defendants, all in violation of various consumer protection, warranty and state-specific laws. These class actions also allege that, at all times, defendants have sought to conceal from consumers and the general public the nature and scope of the engine design defect, incorrect oil recommendations and the resultant harm to the vehicles.
