The problem was discovered with new testing that better measures real-world emissions. The new tests were implemented in the wake of the VW scandal.
"Most vehicles pass these tests," said Giles. "It is by no means impossible to make a clean diesel passenger vehicle that meets these standards."

I though there were some people saying you couldn't make a diesel passenger vehicle the EPA liked, emissions wise. Am I wrong?

Submission + - Fiat Chrysler accused of installing illegal emissions software (cnn.com)

Frosty Piss writes: On the tail wind of Volkswagen's $4.3 billion settlement in their emissions-cheating scandal, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board is accusing Fiat Chrysler of installing software on 100,000 diesel-powered cars and trucks that they say is cheating on emissions tests. The vehicles cited include 2014, 2015 and 2016 model year Jeep Grand Cherokees SUVs and and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with 3-liter diesel engines. Fiat Chrysler claims its emission control systems software is an allowable way to meet emissions rules. But the EPA said that since the software had not be disclosed to the EPA, that puts Fiat Chrysler is in violation of the Clean Air Act, even if it wasn't seeking to cheat on emissions tests.

HTML was supposed to define a page semantically (e.g. header 1). Letting it get crufted up with instructions on how to make it look pretty was a horrible idea (albeit one that came early on). A form should look like a form. No, I don't need whatever new hotness some designer invented with some color scheme A/B tested to hell and back to try to trick me into clicking the desired button.

I will continue not to go there as it adds nothing to my life.

And that the thing. That it adds nothing to your life does not mean that others feel the same way. Go ahead and judge them, after all we know everyone should be like you and those that are no are somehow deficient...
