Interesting article, and I wish FCA would have stepped up sooner for the sake of it's customers.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles may be in hot water with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after it was revealed that the automaker reportedly took 18 months to disclose a security flaw in its Uconnect infotainment system to federal regulators.

Fiat Chrysler elected to not inform regulators of the Uconnect hacking issue because they felt it didn't pose a safety concern, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday. The automaker filed documents with the NHTSA that noted the software issue was identified by a third party in January 2014, according to Bloomberg.

I don't think anyone was hacked but some team hacked one to show that it could be done they also said that its not just FCA that they can hack GM or any car that's linked to Internet threw the factory system not cell phone .
