Ford made some amends and sent out checks to those of us that fell for the initially falsely advertised mpg's of the Cmax. Wonder how Mitsubishi will handle this?

Hyundai did the same thing. So did (I think) Honda after a lawsuit about the Civic hybrid's ratings.

Today, GM voluntarily stopped the sales of some of its SUV's because the MPG is over-stated:
