According to a report from Automotive News General Motors is drafting a plan to compensate owners of certain 2016 crossovers that featured window stickers with overstated fuel economy ratings. The news comes just days after the original story broke that the 2016 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia featured window stickers with inflated EPA fuel economy ratings.
The report claims that GM is expected to announce plans next week as to how it will compensate owners of the 2016 crossovers and how much they will receive. All three products were labeled with the ratings of 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway when in fact the real ratings should have been 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.
The owner of a 2016 Chevrolet Traverse has already taken action to file a lawsuit against GM regarding the matter. The owner is utilizing the same law firm that led a class action lawsuit against Hyundai and Kia after they too overstated fuel economy ratings on certain products. In that case the companies were required to pay owners $395 million.
