So much for the fuel efficiency claims of Hyundai championed by jayraptor. This happens in US. What's your take jayraptor? smile_approve.gif Sued for models manufactured between 2011 -2013. smile_big.gif

Please follow this link for more details:

Or this:

Hyundai didakwa berhubung penjimatan minyak

DETROIT 28 Feb. - Pengeluar kereta dari Korea, Hyundai Motor Co. dijangka menyelesaikan 38 kes mahkamah berhubung dakwaan penjimatan minyak kenderaan yang dijualnya.

Menerusi tuntutan yang dibuat melalui Mahkamah Daerah Amerika Syarikat minggu ini, Hyundai akan membayar pampasan kepada hampir sejuta pemilik kereta dan kenderaan utiliti sukan (SUV) yang dikeluarkan antara 2011 dan 2013, termasuk model sedan, Elantra.

Nilai keseluruhan pampasan tidak diumumkan, namun bayaran tersebut akan berdasarkan jenis kenderaan serta nilai penjimatan asal yang didakwa oleh Hyundai kepada pelanggannya.

Sebuah lagi jenama di bawah kumpulan yang sama, Kia Motors bagaimanapun, masih belum memutuskan untuk mengambil tindakan yang sama seperti Hyundai.

Sebelum ini, Agensi Perlindungan Alam Sekitar di Amerika Syarikat, mendapati 13 model milik Hyundai dan Kia tidak mencapai kadar penjimatan minyak seperti yang diumumkan kepada pembeli.

Sejam sebelum agensi tersebut mengumumkan hasil kajian itu, Hyundai mengambil keputusan untuk melakukan pembayaran pampasan sebanyak AS$88 (RM273) setahun kepada pelanggannya.

Sebahagian pembeli bagaimanapun enggan menerima bayaran tersebut dan mahu membawa perkara itu ke mahkamah.

Moral of the story is don't bluff the public and the market. Consumers are much smarter nowadays. I respect your creativity on fuel consumption claims in various threads but it lacks substance. Learn to tell the truth if you wanted to win business.

Next could be sued will be Kia!!!! smile_tongue.gif

Bringing up the old case again? Hyundai/Kia models involved in the lawsuit only involves difference of 1-2mpg that is just mere 0.43km/L to 0.9km/L difference. The standard FC reading is taken from traffic in city and highway dated back in 1990's. US city and highway today are much more crowded with more bumper to bumper crawl.

If the law is to take into full consideration by taking FC reading based on today's traffic, then Japanese, US and conti brands too must be re-evaluated and if liable to lawsuit, these older carmakers would suffer more serious losses.

When automotive consumer rights group is established here after the big event, more likely your company will be next. The light foot contest is best evidence against you bunch should the owners lodged complain. Sylphy claimed 16km/L city, actual only 9km/L, difference of 16.5mpg = 7km/L. Rather than the company being held responsible, they might divert the attention to you bunch instead. The idea came from you bunch and approved by you bunch, so you will have no choice but to be kicked out of the company. You broke the law, you kena.
