Ford Accused of Falsifying Fuel Economies

Though they insisted it was an honest mistake, about a month or so ago, Hyundai and Kia were caught exaggerating fuel economies across their expansive model line. Yesterday, Consumer Reports accused the Ford Motor Company of doing the same.

On top of this the new Econoboost engine has fire problems and these cars have had 4 recalls already for "do not drive it" faults! Seems there is not a car maker out there willing or able to achieve high mileage without sacrificing honesty and safety.

Mistake...yeah, sure! I two cars, one 3 years old and another 15 years old. Both taken care of and the new one is suppose to get 30 miles a gallon. Funny thing, they both get 20 miles a gallon. Both different types: the newer one a smaller car and the older on is a van. So when it comes to trusting what they say about better or more fuel mileage is a bunch of bologna to me. Thanks Cher
