RSS Report: Honda headed back to court over Civic Hybrid fuel economy

Recommended Posts

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Government/Legal, Hondahonda-civic-hybrid.jpg

Heather Peters beat Honda. A small claims court in California awarded Ms. Peters $9,867 because it agreed that her Honda Civic Hybrid failed to deliver the 50 mpg EPA rating Honda claimed it would. According to The Detroit News, Honda is appealing the decision, especially after the success of Peters's suit inspired 1,700 others to opt out of a 2003-2009 model year class action settlement, possibly portending a wave of one-shot litigation that the company would have to defend itself against.

Honda didn't seem to take Heather Peters very seriously until it lost, but it now seems that the company is intent on not blowing its last chance to have the case reviewed. Peters will be presenting new evidence and both sides will get to argue their side of the issue to a judge, basically re-trying the initial case.

Yeah, I love how the media complains about things that happen with American brands, but almost never get some dirt on the foreign. And we all know its out there.

This actually has been in the news. Not a mega story like it would be if it was Chevy or Ford so definitely agree
