Fiat Chrysler review shows U.S. sales figures were inflated: Automotive News
DETROIT (Reuters) - An internal review that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles conducted from mid-2015 found that U.S. sales figures were inflated by 5,000 to 6,000 vehicles, partly amid pressure to keep the company's year-over-year monthly sales streak alive, the Automotive News reported Monday, citing two sources at FCA.
An FCA spokeswoman declined to comment on Monday.
A week ago, FCA confirmed that U.S. regulators were investigating claims of inflated sales.
