Default Hyundai, Kia Sued in US Over Incorrect MPG Claims



After admitting to incorrect fuel mileage claims on about 900,000 vehicles, Hyundai and Kia are now faced with a lawsuit that is seeking class-action status and unspecified damages.

The suit was filed on Sunday in the U.S. District Court of Southern Ohio, and is aiming to get attorney’s fees, class-action designation, as well as unspecified damages that were incurred as a result of the incorrect stated fuel economy. The suit is also trying to get permission for buyers to back out of their purchase or lease agreements on the affected vehicles, specifically for Ohio consumers.

Both companies have already initiated compensation programs, but for certain customers, that clearly was not enough. The plaintiffs in the case are Molly Simons, who bought a 2012 Kia Rio, and Rebecca Sanders and Jeffrey Millar who purchased a 2013 Hyundai Elantra last month.

As much as I love Hyundai and Kia for their awesome vehicles, they did deserve this. Props to the EPA for picking up on this.

Im glad someone caught on because they are making a lot of sales. And to pump out that many cars and not focusing on consumer needs and service will cost them. Not on money but their reputation in a long run.
