Another Emissions Scandal? EPA Says 2014–2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Ram Diesels Violate Clean Air Act

Jeep Grand Cherokees and Ram 1500s from the 2014 through 2016 model years with 3.0-liter diesel engines may have emission-control equipment that violates the Clean Air Act, the EPA alleged Thursday.

From what I'm reading here the EPA got butthurt that Chrysler wouldn't provide them with the full software configuration they wanted and vengefully issued a non compliance on them over it.
Even if what they assume Chrysler is doing to be true with regards to the devices(alleged) nature what difference does it make to the consumer? Seriously?

Yep - as stated, having software in there that isn't disclosed & changes operation under different conditions - is illegal.

Cheating to spew extra crap when not under test conditions - VW isn't happy now.

Either Chrysler's version isn't QUITE as blatant, or it's still getting the historical breaks as a US company they want to support - even though it's Italian now.
