Dr Stoll & Sauer initiates research at Bafin

The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA/now Stellantis) emissions scandal hit the burgeoning mobile home industry in particular. Expensive RVs are often equipped with Fiat and Iveco base vehicles. The engines only meet the legal emission limit values ​​on the test bench and not in normal road traffic. Emission control turns off with a primitive clock after about 22 minutes. The test on the rolling stand lasts about 20 minutes. The scandal has been simmering since 2015, when investigations into Fiat began in the United States. The Frankfurt public prosecutor’s office has been investigating the car company since 2020. Expert reports from the German Environmental Aid (DUH) and the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) confirm the long-standing suspicion of exhaust gas manipulation. The KBA is currently examining how the mobile homes can be brought back to a legally compliant condition.

Therefore, she takes advantage of her position and flatly rejects all requests for coverage in the Fiat cases for no plausible reason.
