Ford owners sue over MPG claims, 'under-performing' hybrids

The worst time to lie about mpg is when highway/city have the same number (47). If the consumer gets less than 47 in any driving situation, there is going to be protesting. They should have given a wider range for highway and city and been honest. These are not mistakes. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Ford calculated that the cost of settling mileage lawsuits would be less than the increase in sales by fudging numbers. I remember when they calculated that the pinto wrongful death lawsuits from fires would be cheaper than installing the $12 shield that would have prevented the fuel tanks from puncturing on impact.
