Hyundai And Kia To Pay Each Customer 320 Dollars Because Of False Fuel Indicators On Several US Models
|   Monday, December 30, 2013
A year ago, in November 2012, Hyundai and Kia were thrown into a huge scandal after many customers were accusing some models of the two Korean manufacturers of incorrect consumption figures.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has registered complaints, and found then that about a million units were sold with false fuel consumption figures advertised. The incorrect figure was engraved on each car window that Hyundai and Kia sold in the United States.
The deviation of these figures was up to 1-2 mpg. The biggest error was found in the case of the Soul model. In fact, this model has already been replaced by a new generation.

Although the Asian group officials have acknowledged the mistake and promised fuel cards to the customers cheated because of an error in calculations in Korea and the United States, the owners have filed lawsuits and they have won.

That National Environment Agency has detected calculation errors on the 13 Hyundai and Kia models produced between 2011 and 2013 and has won the case with the two manufacturers.

As a result, Hyundai will have to pay the equivalent of 210 million dollars to over 600,000 US deceived customers, while Kia will pull out of the treasury a total of 185 million dollars for over 300,000 cars sold with an incorrect fuel consumption number.

The amount of cash that the Korean groups will pay will be distributed different to customers. The average amount that each customer will receive is approximately 320 dollars, the equivalent of 230 euros.
