If you purchased a Honda Civic Hybrid model auto between the years of 2003 through 2009 you might be eligible for a cash pay out up to $200 or a rebate worth up to $1,000 on the purchase or lease of a new Honda or Acura under the terms of the Honda Civic Hybrid Lawsuit. The lawsuit revolves around claims that the 2003 to 2009 Honda Civic Hybrids did not deliver on the MPG as advertised. These autos claimed they would get 50 MPG when in all actuality it barely got 30 mpg overtime according to the lawsuit complaint. Class members claim that if the truth was known about the true MPG of the Civic Hybrid they would have never purchased this car.
On September 30, 2011, in the San Diego County Superior the Honorable Court Judge Timothy B. Taylor preliminarily approved a proposed settlement in the Honda Civic Hybrid Lawsuit.
