A judge has tentatively approved a settlement between Honda and Civic owners over fuel economy claims. Honda Civic owners claimed that the carmaker had inflated the Honda Civic hybrids’ gas mileage. USA Today reports that 200,000 Civic hybrid owners will receive between $100 to $200, and a rebate towards the purchase of a new Honda in the settlement.
Last month Heather Peters, a Honda Civic owner won a $9,867 judgment against Honda Motor Company in small claims court over the gas mileage issue. Honda plans to appeal the judgment.
