It is my understanding that the Feds (EPA) determine the mileage rate. So, why would anyone sue the manufacturer? -- Donna

Most, if not all, manufacturers self-certify..... meaning they run the test to the EPA procedure and report the results. A suit contends that the manufacturer made a mistake or is lying. I don't trust all the companies, but I very much trust Ford, knowing the people and the culture. Could I be wrong? Of course. :)
