but only for customers who purchased or leased the cars in California

So pretty much pointless for most people. Good share though, but very limited and even those effected probably won't see a dime unfortunately.

Yeah, I don't see this going anywhere significant. With the number of affected cars, at some point FCA will probably offer to settle confidentially without admitting any fault. It would cost a pittance and wouldn't risk setting a legal precedent to be used in other states.

Yeah, but you don't have a manual transmission. Only owners of 2013-2016 purchased new in the state of California with manual transmissions are party to the lawsuit. Its legal basis is California new vehicle consumer protections regulations, and the claimed defect is specific to the clutch mechanism, so the scope of the lawsuit is very small. FCA would be wise to settle it confidentially, which would prevent anybody involved from ever discussing the terms and not require FCA to admit the possibility of any problems.
