Give False Info Car Efficiency, Hyundai and Kia to Apologize

Fuel efficiency is the most highlighted recently. In addition to its environmental issues, at a more simple, because the price of fuel becomes more expensive, the cost of vehicles also increased.

Fuel efficiency is a very significant consideration for a large number of prospective buyers of new cars. Therefore, if you advertise that you have a car with a value of 40 mpg, you should make sure that it is correct or you will be subject to costly penalties.

The Environmental Protection Agency found the difference between the mileage they test themselves with mileage written on the sticker on the window of the car in Hyundai and Kia dealerships.

According to The Detroit News, this finding is the result of an investigation that began eight months ago when the EPA’s Ann Arbor laboratory test results to see the differences between what they do and the official numbers listed on the 2012 Hyundai Elantra.

Both automakers have apologized and offered to compensate nearly 900,000 customers who have purchased their vehicles since late 2010. It is a move that would cost millions of dollars and according to the EPA, it is very rare because since 2000, only two vehicles have different mileage: Dodge Ram 2001 with a difference of 1 mpg, and the 2012 BMW 328i with a 2 mpg difference.

This time most Hyundai models, such as the Elantra, Genesis, Azera, Accent and Veloster along with the Kia Sportage, Optima HEV, Rio and Sorento are included in the list.

“Consumers rely on the window sticker to help them get the information about the car they want to buy,” said Gina McCarthy, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation.

President and CEO of Hyundai Motor North America, John Krafcik apologized to the public: “Given the importance of fuel efficiency for all of us, we are very sorry about this mistake. We will fix it.”

“When we told the owner of Hyundai ‘We are always ready to help you,’ the word – the word is that we guarantee will not run away from responsibility,” Krafcik added. “We’re going to fix this for everyone and we will be more eager than ever to ensure that our vehicles will deliver fuel savings were outstanding.”

Similarly, the executive VP of marketing and communications of Kia Motors America, Michael Sprague stated that the company “deeply regret our error and apologize to all the owners of our products”.

The problem, said Krafcik, this is caused by a “procedural error” on the part of the company due to a change in methodology in 2010. President of Hyundai Motor America Technical Center, Sung Hwan Cho said that errors in testing “coastdown”, which simulate aerodynamic drag, drivetrain frictional losses and rolling resistance tires, is to blame for this distance difference.

This issue includes the 35% of assembled vehicles sold from 2011 to 2013 until October yesterday, or about 900,000 units. Approximately 580,000 of them, approximate mileage will drop 1 mpg, 240,000 and as much as 2 mpg for 80,000 remaining to reach 3 to 4 mpg.

Dealers will check the odometer car and count how many owners have to pay for fuel (based on fuel prices in the local area) with identical mileage with EPA findings.

Then Hyundai and Kia will add 15% of the total and send it via debit card to its owner, and they will continue to reimburse me for the customer has a vehicle. Vehicle owners who are also affected but have sold their cars will also receive reimbursement using the same method.

Sprague estimates that the number of owners who close to one million people, the company may spend tens of millions of dollars.

This issue will also reduce fuel consumption rating of the average car by 3%, although it will still be in the EPA regulations.

– Adding insulation to the oil pan, it aims to stabilize the oil pressure and reduce rotational friction in the oil pan, especially when you’re speeding.

– Chassis for stability more steady. Materials for suspension replacement, bushing-bushing using stronger material and not less interesting, this car is also more shallow to obtain an even lower center of gravity, thus making the car more agile maneuver.

– Camber bolts installed on the front suspension, to improve the accuracy of camber, and the ease of setting alignment.
