Hyundai court case

A lawsuit has been filed against Hyundai and Kia seeking $775 million in damage over them overstating the fuel economy of their vehicles.

Both companies had reported higher gas mileage rating on EPA window stickers than the cars were actually capable of. Both companies admitted guilt and are reimbursing 900,000+ customers who had bought affected vehicles.

While most models were found to be 1-2 mpg out on their true figures, some were awry by as much as 6 mpg.
