Stop Selling Cars that Violate Clean Air Act

Target: Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Chrysler

Goal: Stop selling diesel vehicles that emit more pollution than the Clean Air Act allows.

Fiat Chrysler is accused of cheating on emissions, allowing over 100,000 vehicles to be put on the market that pollute the air more than is legally allowed under the Clean Air Act. Although the company has stopped production of the models in question,  it does intend to continue selling the vehicles that have already been manufactured, despite their failure to meet emissions standards.

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a notice of violation and is investigating Fiat Chrysler alongside the Justice Department. The company is accused of failing to disclose software in some of its pickups and SUVs that caused them to emit less pollution during testing than they do during regular driving. According to Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, the software was not disclosed because it is standard among automakers, and requirements for disclosure were recently changed after a case against Volkswagen. Even if there was no intent to “defeat” the emissions tests, however, the fact is that the excess pollution is extremely harmful to the environment, and the vehicles in question should not remain on the market. Sign below to demand that the sale of these cars be stopped to protect our planet.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear CEO Marchionne,

In light of the evidence that Fiat Chrysler vehicles fail to comply with the standards of the Clean Air Act, including 2014 through 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickups, it is vital to our planet that all of those vehicles be taken off the market.

It is irresponsible to continue selling vehicles that emit more pollution than the law allows, even if the vehicles are no longer being manufactured. I urge you to protect the environment by ensuring that no more of the vehicles in question are sold.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. we are in one of the VERY few counties that have to have our cars emissions tested in order to get plates. it just cost me 700 dollars to get my car to pass and it doesn’t run as well as it did before. everybody should have to make sure their vehicle runs as clean as possible.

  2. end the polluting cars now.
