Approved Emissions Modification Overview
The Approved Emissions Modification ("AEM") is a software update that is intended to ensure that the Subject Vehicles' emissions comply with the emissions standards to which they were originally certified. There will be no hardware changes to your vehicle associated with the AEM. Through the settlements, Fiat Chrysler will offer the AEM free of charge for all model year 2014 to 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel Vehicles.
The AEM is not expected to change any of your key vehicle attributes, such as average fuel economy, reliability, durability, vehicle performance, drivability, engine noise or vibration, or other driving characteristics.

The AEM will be made available within 15 days after the Court grants final approval of the settlements.
Once the settlements receive final approval from the court, current owners and lessees of the Subject Vehicles may call Fiat Chrysler's Call Center at 1-833-280-4748 or their preferred dealer to schedule an appointment to receive the AEM. Fiat Chrysler will provide a loaner vehicle at no cost if the AEM is scheduled to take longer than three hours or if it is not complete within three hours of the scheduled start of the appointment.
You may receive the Approved Emissions Modification (and associated extended warranty) at any point in the claims process outlined below, but you will not be eligible for compensation until you have also submitted a claim.
