It is common practice for automakers to use secondary emission controls to protect engines from internal damage. When doing so the maker must proclaim and document it to the EPA.

Currently, Fiat-Chrysler’s 2017 diesels are not certified for sale in the United States, forcing Chrysler to continue selling 2016 models instead.
