Condemned for misleading consumer Honda will appeal

The lady considered misleading consumption ratings announced in the advertisement of the manufacturer.

Figures of fuel consumption measurements by American Environmental Agency (APA) were 4.8 L/100m in urban driving and 4.6 L/100 km on the highway. For its part, Ms. Peters has succeeded in proving that the consumption of its hybrid car far exceeded advertised dimensions in advertising the manufacturer.

The court granted him a compensation of $ 9,867.

Somehow driven to the wall, the American division of Honda will try to set aside the judgment which was unfavorable to him, since we know very well that several other lawsuits could be added.
