2013-2015 Dodge Dart Class Action "Settled"

A June 2016 class action lawsuit (Victorino, et al. v. FCA US LLC) concerning 2013-2015 Dodge Dart vehicles which suffered from a defective clutch system (which can result in the clutch pedal sticking to the follow and preventing the driver from shifting gears or controlling the vehicle speed) recently sought preliminary approval of a class action settlement.


The terms of the settlement would provide the Class Members with a 12 month warranty extension for the clutch slave cylinder, as well as an agreement to reimburse Class Members for any out-of-pocket repair expenses to repair or replace the clutch slave cylinder.


While the motion seeking preliminary approval of the settlement is set for hearing on April 21, 2023, an important protection offered under the California Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (commonly known as the "California Lemon Law") is not encompassed by this settlement: namely, the ability for a consumer to seek a repurchase (i.e., a refund of the money paid for the defective car) or replacement if the manufacturer had not repaired the vehicle to meet the warranty standards within a reasonable number of repair chances.


If your ownership of a 2013-2015Dodge Dart has (or had) been plagued with repeated visits to the dealer to address these (or similar) issues, you may be entitled to a refund of the money you paid for the car.
