Los Angeles, CA: Ford Motor Company is facing a consumer fraud class action lawsuit filed over allegations the car manufacturer made false and misleading statements about the fuel economy numbers of its popular 2013 C-MAX Hybrid and Fusion Hybrid.
Filed by McCuneWright LLP on behalf of Richard Pitkin of California, the lawsuit claims Pitkin is getting 37 miles per gallon (mpg) from the C-MAX Hybrid he purchased in October. However, according to the mileage numbers approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, the C-MAX and Fusion Hybrid models both get 47 mpg in the city.
The lawsuit states, "In its advertising and marketing campaign for the vehicles, Ford claimed that the C-MAX Hybrid ad Fusion Hybrid achieved a class leading 47 Miles Per Gallon These materials helped Ford achieve record sales for the first two months of C-MAX Hybrid sales, outselling its rival, hybrid sales leader Toyota, but there was a problem. These ads were false."

I purchased a 2013 CMax because of the promised 47 MPG highway rating. I currently get about 30. I would like to be in on this case as well

I have been waiting for over 4 years now what is happening with this class action suit. I have lost probably over $6000 dollars in gas since buying a vehicle that get about 22% less gas millage than advertised.
