2011-2016 Jeep Compass Recall

https://driving.ca/dodge/avenger/aut...non-compliance

Fiat Chrysler recalling almost 100,000 vehicles in Canada over emissions

Dodges, Chryslers and Jeeps will see catalytic converters replaced as part of campaign affecting close to 1 million vehicles total

Fiat Chrysler is voluntarily recalling 862,520 vehicles in the U.S. and close to 100,000 in Canada because they don’t meet the country’s emission standards.

The Environmental Protection Agency says the recall is the result of in-use emissions investigations it performed and in-use testing conducted by Fiat Chrysler as required by the U.S.’ EPA regulations.

The vehicles involved in the recall are equipped with the company’s four-cylinder engines, and include 2011 through 2016 Dodge Journeys; 2011 through 2014 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger cars; 2011 through 2012 Dodge Calibers; and 2011 through 2016 Jeep Compass and Patriot SUVs.

“The proposed repair is expected to significantly reduce engine emissions, leading to better air quality for all Canadians,” a spokesperson for Environment and Climate Change Canada told Driving.ca.

Fiat Chrysler previously recalled these same vehicles in Canada in June of 2018 for a similar issue. “On certain vehicles, there may be a loss of catalyst efficiency; as a result, oxides of nitrogen (Nox) emissions may exceed the prescribed standards,” noted an ECCC report. “Dealers will install a new catalyst and reprogram the powertrain control module software on all affected vehicles.”

The EPA said mid-March it will continue to investigate other Fiat Chrysler vehicles that are potentially non-compliant and may become the subject of future recalls.

The recall will be performed in phases during the year, with the oldest vehicles first. Owners of vehicles involved in the recall must wait until they receive notification from Fiat Chrysler before scheduling a dealership appointment. They can continue to drive their vehicles in the meantime.
