Your cars don't obtain 50 mpg as Honda advertised. I am shocked you found a judge to agree with you, hmmmm no I am not. Thats why Japan lost ww2 and all your cities were bombed to ashes. Japanese have no honor, sneak attack pearl harbor, batten starvation march, pow abuse, man you guys are honor less.
FYI Honda performs the test that the EPA mandates. Having said that look up the test requirements and you will find that the test is obsurd, no way you can drive like that in the real world. EPA is a farce, but Honda is mandated to perform their tests and report. So quit the blame game. Oh, I guess its Bushes fault.
My 1992 Toyota truck is listed at 24mpg for highway but most users averaged 25.1 for both highway and city. I got 35mpg hauling a heavy trailer across country. All depends on how you drive. Software upgrade might have given it more power and takeoff so she drove differently afterwards.
tedehale, agree with you. Driving habits are important. Generally the MPG estimate is very close. And car maintainance & care also important to keep the car in top shape. Some people hardly change the oil, or do any tune-up at all. Then blame the car for not good at MPG.
