Tennessee will receive more than $965,000 as part of a $41.2 million multi-state settlement with Hyundai and Kia, Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III announced today. The agreement resolves claims that the automakers misrepresented mileage and fuel economy ratings for some 2011, 2012 and 2013 model vehicles. The settlement, reached between attorneys general in 33 states and the District of Columbia and the Hyundai Motor Company, Hyundai Motor America, Kia Motors Corporation and Kia Motors America, concludes a multi-state investigation into the fuel economy estimates during a period of especially high gasoline prices.
