Known as a family brand of sedans and minivans, Chrysler is one of the “Big Three” automobiles manufactured in the United States. As a leader in performance and innovation, Chrysler produces mainstream cars to fit a variety of needs. Some brands under the Chrysler branch include Dodge, Jeep, and Ram trucks. With a history dating back to 1925, Chrysler expanded quickly and was on the front lines of innovation from the defense industry of WWII all the way up to the production of early electric cars. Chrysler is soon to be renamed Stellantis in 2021 when the merger with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Peugeot is complete.
Despite an impressive history, Chrysler vehicles may still experience defects. If your vehicle has undergone repair attempts without a resolution, you may be entitled to protective measures. Both California and Federal Laws may provide the consumer with some type of compensation, either cash or repair. Those residing in California’s Oakland Alameda County area should contact Kaufman & Kavicky, LLP for a consultation.
