Honda Sued Over Promised Gas Mileage

When you buy a product, you expect it to live up to the advertised claims – right?  With all the talk about gas mileage and fuel economy these days, I expected something like this sooner.  A California woman is taking Honda to task for her 2006 Civic not meeting the MPG claims.

Heather Peters says her car never came close to getting the promised 50 miles per gallon, and as its battery deteriorated, it was getting only 30 mpg. She wants Honda to pay for her trouble and the extra money she spent on gas.

And before you write-off Ms. Peters’ chances, you should know the full story;  She knows a thing or two about the legal system.

Peters, a former lawyer who long ago gave up her bar card, has devised a unique legal vehicle to drive Honda into court — a small claims suit that could cost the company up to $10,000 in her case and every other individual case filed in the same manner.
