That would be Hyundai, but yes, they as well as Ford Fusion and C-Max are under an EPA review.
I donít think hunday is part of this. They already went through the investigation, were sued, and Lang said weíre sorry.

Hyundai was investigated by the EPA for it's cars not meeting their MPG estimates, judged guilty and fined accordingly. Ford is now being investigated by the EPA for it's cars not meeting their MPG estimates and is awaiting the result of the investigation.

How is it different? Did Ford lie about it's EPA numbers? Or did the printers of it's window stickers make a slight mistake?

Actually, Hyundai agreed to settle multiple lawsuits against it that were filed as a result of the findings by the EPA that they mistated their MPG ratings. Cost them alot of money.
Ford's issue with their Fusion and C-Max cars is still being investigated by the EPA.

I still can't believe hunday lied to all those people. They should've bought a Volt and saved money.

Yeah that's a shame they would do something like that. What do you think's going to happen to Ford if it turns out they did the same thing?

They didnít do the same thing. If you were a car guy you would know that. Hunday are proven liars.

"Hyundai and Kia overstated the estimated fuel economy on more than 900,000 economy U.S. vehicles sold over the past two years and will compensate owners for the lies and faulty claims, the companies said today.
The South Korean partners will also lower the fuel-economy estimates on most of their 2012 and 2013 economy models"
The reason almost every single Volt owner loves his or her car ..... the car exceeds the EPA and GM estimates. By quite a lot. GM knew they low balling it. Smart move.

Now we know your not a financial analist or a internet detective, but keep posting and making a fool of yourself. Between you and neutered root, it's quite entertaining, everyone is laughing.
Can't stand being proved wrong ... eh? That's two groups that compare cost of ownership of cars that put the Volt way ahead of a tin can Hyundai.

By the way .... it's Analyst. I can see you are not a guuuud spelller.

And you can laugh all you want. As I told other haters, if it relieves the pain of the pump, go ahead. Some people need to hate to feel better. Me ... I like putting money in my stock accounts.

I get to save over $1,000 a year and then watch it grow. You get to put it in your tank and watch it ...... go.

Hahahahhaha

This is for echo (The Dolt).

This is why I may only have to change my brakes once in the car's life time ... or maybe never.

http://www.designnews.com/document.asp...

Regenerative braking has been around for almost 100 years. Diesel locomotives and troly cars were among the first to use regenerative braking.

http://www.howstuffworks.com/auto-parts/brake...

You see, you learned something. You know, you should know something about a subject before you make a statement about it. Sometimes it comes back and bites you. No brake pads until 3 mph. I have had my car for 19 months and I just cleaned my fron rims. They really didn't need cleaning. I just wanted them to match the back rims.

What an amazing car.

We all know how much the Europeans hate American cars. That makes the European awards the Volt has won even more impressive.

Such as "What Car" (England) award for best alternative fuel car.

http://www.evmart.co.uk/news/chevrolet-volt-w...

Bolstered by the European Volt winning the Monte Carlo Alternative Fuel Rally. Beating the worlds best diesels and bio-diesels.

http://www.carscoops.com/2012/03/opel-ampera-...

It also was awarded "Best Eco Car" by the English publication "Diesel Car".

http://www.autoevolution.com/news/chevy-volt-...

And of course, the Volt was the first American car ever to win European Car Of The Year.

What an amazing car.

Wow! You must be one of them "insider car guys". The EPA is still investigating Ford and hasn't released any findings, but you already know the results. Facinating!

No, for you the proper spelling is analist. And it's not a $7,500 credit, it's welfare. BTW you seem to change your line of BS with every post, but keep it flowing, you keep use amused.

I can tell you don't own a house, or have kids. Otherwise, you would know what a tax credit is.

Mitt Romney's tax credits added up to $1.3 million in 2011. He was at the head of the welfare line.

You need to get your finances in order and purchase a house so you can stop the hemoraging of money. Me .... I paid my house off in 1994.

I'm glad you like my humor, Dolt. I especially liked the line:
I get to watch my money grow,
You get to watch your money go.

And I do change with almost every post. I only repeat when haters don't read prior posts. Like ... I've already posted 3 different, reputable groups that show the Volt costs less than a tin can in less than 5 years. So, the next time you say I have to drive 170,000 miles to make up the difference in price, I'll find a fourth, and so on.

OK, glad you like my stuff. Pete likes it so much he added one more thumbs down. Now it's 14. I can see the fumes from here.

Hey Moe, look, it's Petey. His head is on fire. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk.
