In November 2016, a false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against GM for allegedly falsely marketing 2014-2016 Chevrolet Sonics as being rated by the EPA as getting 40 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway when, in reality, the EPA mpg rating for the vehicles with manual transmissions was overestimated by at least 1 mpg. (Puente et al v. General Motors, LLC, Case No. 16-cv-8688, D. NJ.)
