Heather Peters is driving Honda up the wall. She claims her Civic Hybrid does not get the fuel economy advertised, and she got mileage on her case in small claims court. That is right, small claims court.
Matters of less than $5,000 have reserved parking in small claims court. Peters, however, was awarded $10,000 in damages. Honda does not appeal to everyone, but they did in this case.
Peters could have joined a class action lawsuit, but refused the carpool. Now she is encouraging other Honda drivers to follow her route and to sue the automaker in small claims court…her way or the highway!
