A California federal judge has rejected Chrysler Group LLC’s bid to escape a putative class action accusing it of selling 2013 and 2014 Dodge Darts with defective clutches. U.S. District Judge S. James Otero found that the Plaintiffs adequately described the alleged defect in their complaint. The judge limited the class action, but refused to dismiss it in its entirety. The Plaintiffs said that Chrysler knew that the vehicles equipped with manual transmissions feature a defective hydraulic clutch system that does not function as expected and is instead plagued by numerous problems and safety concerns.
