Honda versus Heather Peters or the case of dead batteries June 1, 2012 at 8:47 am
This car is a Honda Civic Hybrid, a hybrid Honda sold for several years, including our country, until 2010. In Motorpasión we tested in 2008. United States has a certification of 42 miles per gallon (5.6 l / 100 km), while in Europe the official figure was 4.6 l / 100 km or 59 mpg in American system.
To sum up briefly what comes before, Heather Peters sued Honda for misleading advertising, “promised” consumption were not achievable. The brand offered a compensation of 100-200 $ or a discount of $500 on a new car, extrajudicially. Heather went ahead and got a conviction for Honda, and compensation of almost $10,000.
Note: This article has been deeply revised since, as several commentators pointed out previously, it was wrong. I left the theory that the driver in question not assumed that your car could consume more than approval, when the truth is that there is another problem that requires more rummaging, and that I have done. Initial sources not mentioned this problem, and piqué.
I apologize for having provided incomplete information, but this time I’ve assured not to let cabos without tying.
