Car companies busted for displaying wrong fuel stats

Nine companies were found displaying misleading fuel efficiency rating labels on their cars, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy said yesterday after conducting its annual energy efficiency rating labeling inspection in March.

According to the ministry, companies Hyundai, Renault Samsung, Audi, Nissan, Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and car importers Hanbul Motors, which sells Peugeot and Citroen vehicles, and FMK, which retails Ferrari and Maserati brand models, have been fined 2 million won ($1,770) to 4 million won for displaying inflated fuel efficiency ratings or old fuel efficiency labels.
