Angry Hybrid Owner Suing Honda Saying Car Doesn’t Get 51 MPG

Angry Hybrid Owner Suing Honda Saying Car Doesn’t Get 51 MPG



Honda


Heather Peters is taking Honda to small claims court for what she says are the fuel economy shortcomings of her Civic Hybrid. When she originally purchased the vehicle, she did so in the hopes that it would save her money at the gas pump. However, Peters claims that the car does not deliver the advertised 51 miles per gallon (mpg) highway and 46 mpg city fuel efficiency. “Of course I didn’t expect to get exactly [50 mpg], but it never got even close to that,” said Peters in a FOX interview. “On its best day, it was getting 41-42 [mpg]; generally in the high 30’s.”


She claims things only got worse from there.


“They did a software update that was intended to save the battery so that they didn’t have to pay $3,000 to replace it and now I get 28 or 29 [mpg],” Peters said.

 My 1996 Geo metro got a zippy 40 mpg on the freeway and cost me $500 cash. I want a slower geo 1000cc which can get up to 50mpg and cheap parts. My Geo lsi motor did 189,000 miles because someone else maintained it for most of its life. This baby gets a rebuilt engine. Hybrid what?
