Probably the massive fine VW got "motivated" others to not cheat or try to hide.Saddest? I've had two Patriots. Both are fabulous vehicles. One racked up almost 300,000 before I sold it, the other is still going strong at 110,000 miles (no repairs except a brake job in October and a wiper blade -- that's just routine M&R).
I'm impressed that FCA discovered the problem themselves and owned up to it. Quite unlike Volkswagen who fully intended to cheat the testing apparatus. I applaud FCA's honesty. :angel: I feel good about buying from an honest company.
