Hyundai's False MPG Advertising

After receiving complaints from Hyundai owners across the country, in November, 2011 Consumer Watchdog challenged the US Environmental Protection Agency to audit Hyundai over the "40 Miles Per Gallon" MPG claims on the window sticker of its Elantra. On November 2, 2012, the EPA confirmed Consumer Watchdog's allegations, announcing that Hyundai and KIA would be required to change the false MPG window sticker claims on many of their vehicles, including Elantra.
