(Jalopnik)   I'm sure it was just Volkswagen installing emissions defeat devices on their "Clean" diesels. Right?   (jalopnik.com) divider line

I sincerely believe most of them could not care less that their vehicle is more polluting than they were led to believe when they purchased it.

These are Chrysler products. If more than 10% of them are still running, I'd be surprised.

A vehicle that functioned correctly and didn't cause engine damage in the name of pollution standards.

It wasn't really cheating. The EPA allows engines to operate in conditions where emissions are higher than allowable specs if it's required to protect the engine from damage, or if the operating conditions are such that they are short periods of time that don't make up a substantial amount of the total time that the vehicle is operating. In the case of the trucks and SUVs, this was during heavy load towing conditions with the "Tow/Haul" mode activated. The EPA got their knickers in a twist because these defeat conditions weren't disclosed properly in documentation submitted for emissions certification, and after the VW Dieselgate they turned it into a huge federal case when it was basically nothing.

FIAT-Crysler.  I think 10% is optimistic.

omg bbq: I do hope that my car is not a fat pig of a polluter though.


Oh, it certainly is. It's closer to real-world results (obviously) because what is achieved in the lab cannot be achieved in regular driving.
