Honda Hybrid Owners Win Small Claims

Honda Civic hybrid owner Heather Peters brought and won a small claims suit against Honda Motor Company because her car failed to achieve the 50 miles per gallon fuel efficiency the company claimed the car could get. She won $9,867 in damages, which exceeds the proposed class action settlement in a suit brought against Honda by Civic hybrid owners which was rejected by a Federal judge last year. Jerry Hirsch of the Los Angeles Times has been following both cases and fills Melissa Block in on the story.
