A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Ford Motor Co. alleging the vehicle maker’s mileage claims for two new hybrid models are false and misleading.
Ford has made fuel economy a major part of its advertising pitch for new products, notably including the 2013 C-Max Hybrid and Fusion Hybrid models, NBC News said. However, its official ratings have been hit by criticism by sources such as Consumer Reports magazine. This is not the first major car manufacturer to find itself in a mileage scandal. Kia and Hyundai recently rolled back their mileage numbers by as much as 6 mpg after admitting they fudged the official government testing process, NBC News said.
