Hyundai, Kia Admit to Overstating Fuel Consumption Figures

Late last week Hyundai, Kia admitted to overstating fuel consumption figures on some of their models from the 2011 to 2013 model years in the United States (US).

The models affected being the Hyundai Accent, Azera, Elantra, Genesis, Santa Fe, Sonata Hybrid, Tucson and Veloster. Kia Vehicles affected being the Kia Optima Hybrid, Rio, Sorento, Soul and Sportage.

Hyundai, Kia was ordered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to amend the window stickers on these models as a result of complaints received from a number of customers claiming that they were struggling to achieve fuel consumption figures anywhere near to those stated by the manufacturers.

Hyundai, Kia claim that these mistakes were not intentional but as a result of an administrative error. Both companies will compensate customers for the mistake.
