Some Hybrid Cars Not Living Up To Mileage Claims

by

 

When you pay a premium price for a hybrid auto you expect it to give you great gas millage, but some of the vehicles are not living up to their numbers. Katie Kerwin at Auto Beat Daily says some hybrid owners are suffering their own kind of sticker shock these days. Its prompted a number of owners to sue, and that’s prompted a call from the automakers for the EPA to reconsider their methods for testing millage in the Hybrids, because their current method isn’t working.

Kerwin says applying the same standards that are used to test cars with internal combustion engines is proving to be misleading. The EPA's evaluation could result in changes in the testing and labeling that EPA requires on cars' window stickers and in consumer information it offers on its website.
