Hyundai, Kia Owners Seek $775 Million Over Fuel Economy Fibs



Less than a week after the Environmental Protection Agency announced that not one, not two, but 13 Hyundai and Kia models failed to meet their advertised fuel-economy ratings, a class-action lawsuit has been filed against the two Korean automakers.
According to Reuters, the suit -- which hasn't officially been granted class-action status yet -- was filed in the U.S. District Court for Central California. The plaintiffs are 23 Hyundai and Kia owners who seek $775 million in damages.
There's more where that came from
Technically, this is the third lawsuit targeting Hyundai and Kia for inaccurate fuel-efficiency claims.
Another was filed in Ohio earlier this week on behalf of three plaintiffs: one Ohio resident who purchased a 2012 Kia Rio, and a Canadian couple who now own a 2013 Hyundai Elantra. That lawsuit doesn't appear to seek class-action status, but it does ask for $5 million in damages.
