Report: Hyundai and Kia agree to settlement in lieu of lawsuit for overrated fuel economy ratings

AutomotiveNews reports that Hyundai has agreed to settle a consumer lawsuit that was based on customers’ claims for overrated fuel economy ratings for some 900,000 Hyundais sold in the US.

Financial terms weren’t specified as attorneys in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, CA are still withholding them.

The filings were processed last Tuesday and are still currently being evaluated while Kia was also included as well. Kia is a subsidiary and is partially owned and operated by Hyundai.

“Kia Motors America’s priority is and will remain making things right for our customers, which is why we are offering to compensate all current and former owners of affected vehicles, using MPG ratings adjustments for the full length of their vehicle ownership,” Scott McKee told AutomotiveNews in an email, a spokesman for Kia Motors America.
