Fiat Chrysler has had a bad couple of months with their Jeep Cherokees. First, they had to recall almost a million and a half Jeep Cherokees due to the fact their UConnect systems (by Harman International) can be hacked and hijacked! Unscrupulous hackers can hack into some of the Jeep Cherokee models using the internet actually take over the steering system, brakes, and transmission. Although Fiat Chrysler voluntarily did a massive recall, there has now been a Complaint filed against Fiat Chrysler and Harman International for fraud, negligence, breach of warranty, and unjust enrichment, stating Chrysler and Harman knowingly sold vehicles with defective, dangerous designs to unknowing consumers. Those bringing the lawsuit state that Chrysler and Harman did not issue a proper recall and poorly designed architectures are still out there in other Fiat Chrysler models containing Uconnect to vehicles’ CAN bus.
Brian Flynn and George and Kelly Brown are the accusers against Fiat Chrysler and Harman International and stated that if the Court certifies their Complaint as a class action there could possibly be over a million plaintiffs out there. If you think you may be one of the, feel free to contact Inserra & Kelley Law Offices to discuss whether you are potentially entitled to compensation if this case moves forward.
