If you didn't already know, Fiat-Chrysler has to now pay billions of dollars because of emissions. Remind you of anything

COUGH the VW group who owns: Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley, Skoda, Seat, Porsche, and Bugatti. COUGH

Fiat-Chrysler owns: Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Ferrari, and SRT. Quite large auto groups.

I simply don't get why big corporations need to cheat on these sorts of things. It's not hard to squeeze power out of an engine and get good emissions with how good engines are getting now.

They simply want to decrease their cost as much as possible. I think they feel like they won't get caught (which VW didn't for quite some time), but eventually, they all will. But maybe after 2 incidences, companies will stop risking it.

Quite. Any company will cut corners to make quick buck. GM is or has done it at some point probably.

GM did it back when the US started requiring seatbelts to be put in cars long ago. They argued...and argued. They never got their way. But all that for a few extra dollars made off each car. Really, GM?

Here is the official listing from Google: Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Lancia, Ram Trucks, Abarth, Mopar and SRT. FCA also owns Maserati, Comau, Magneti Marelli, and Teksid.

If you Google, who owns Ferrari, this comes up: Exor N.V. is an Italian investment company, controlled by the Agnelli family. With a capitalization of US$12 billion, its principal investments include Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, CNH Industrial and Ferrari.

Fiat-Chrysler is a bigggg invester in Ferrari.
