Jeep Cherokee Class action filed by Howard Gutman

Chrysler Hit With Jeep Cherokee Class Action Over Transmission Problems

The Chrysler Group LLC, which is now known as FCA US LLC, was hit with an amended class action lawsuit in a New Jersey federal court, alleging that the 2014 Jeep Cherokees have defective transmissions that are wrought with problems.hese fixes, Car and Driver explains, are “supposed to smooth out shifts from first to second and second to third.”The publication added that in its “reviews of a four-cylinder and various V-6 Cherokees, we noticed erratic behavior from the nine-speed. It would deliver crisp, well-timed shifts on some occasions, yet on others would respond with slurred and delayed changes.”The Jeep Cherokee class action says that instead of acknowledging “the problem Chrysler has proceeded to deny and/or conceal the problem and directed its dealers to provide deceptive, false, or misleading explanations for the failure to provide warranty coverage and reimbursement.”

Oquendo is represented by Howard A. Gutman of the Law Office of Howard A. Gutman.

The Jeep Cherokee Class Action Lawsuit is Oquendo v. Chrysler Group LLC, Case No. 3:15-cv-05056 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
