Cardoso v. FCA US, LLC – Alameda County

FCA breached another settlement agreement! The settlement required FCA to pick up our clients’ defective 2016 Ram 1500 and pay the settlement money by November 3, 2020. FCA completely failed to perform, which is sadly not a surprise. The magistrate judge got involved to supervise FCA’s performance and even ordered a representative to appear before the judge to explain why FCA was still in breach! After the magistrate got involved, FCA was suddenly ready to perform… or so it claimed. FCA botched the vehicle surrender by filling out one document incorrectly and failing to bring the other two. FCA then shorted our client on the settlement check by over $11,500. If you have a claim on a Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, or Maserati vehicle, make sure your attorney has experience dealing with FCA’s pattern of breaching settlement agreements to ensure you actually get paid.
