Texas gets millions in a nationwide car maker settlement.
Texas is getting $2.8M of a $41.2M, 33 state settlement over false fuel economy claims with Hyundai and Kia.
“Hyundai and Kia intentionally falsified fuel economy ratings in order to mislead and deceive Texas consumers,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said, in a statement. “This settlement will help deter future false advertising, protect consumers, and ensure fairness in the marketplace.“
Paxton said the automakers misrepresented mileage and fuel economy ratings for some of their 2011-2013 models, a time of high gas prices, and that’s a violation of state law.
