Honda loses Civic hybrid Small Claims Court lawsuit

Published on Feb 6, 2012 at 7:31 pm in Consumer Awareness.
A California woman has been awarded $9,867 in a lawsuit she filed against Honda Motor Co. in small claims court over the company’s claim that the Honda Civic hybrid gets 50 miles to the gallon. In her suit, the woman claimed that the car never got more than 40 or 41 miles to the gallon, and that a software update to the vehicle dropped the fuel economy even more. The woman said she filed the suit in small claims court “to prevent Honda from bringing a highly paid legal team to the battle,” which would be prohibited under California law. https://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-mo-honda-loses-civic-lawsuit-20120201,0,6604197.story
