Ford’s announcement: Owners will get $550; C-Max combined mpg now 43


According to a story on the Automotive News’ website by staff writer Nick Bunkley, Ford Motor Company will give C-Max owners $550 back and revise its combined EPA 47 mpg figure to 43 mpg because the company used Fusion Hybrid figures instead of testing it to provide realistic mpg numbers on its own.

Customers who are leasing a C-Max will receive a $325 payment.

C-Max customers will be notified by mail. Ford will work with its dealer network to re-label the vehicles.
