Yep, trust the Asian's, all they want is your money.
Hyundai and Kia overstated the estimated fuel economy on more than 900,000 U.S. vehicles sold over the past two years and will compensate owners for the faulty claims, the Detroit News reported.
In addition, the South Korean partners will lower the fuel-economy estimates on most of their 2012 and 2013 models, the paper said. The move follows an investigation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which found discrepancies between its own test results and company figures.
The News said Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik attributed the problem to "procedural errors" in the automaker's own testing. He said Hyundai has identified the source of discrepancies between its testing method and the EPA's recommended approach.
"Given the importance of fuel efficiency to all of us, we're extremely sorry about these errors," Krafcik told the paper. "We're going to make this right."
I bet this story gets very little MEDIA ATTENTION. After all we wouldn't want the World Consumer to know.
