On March 16, 2012, Consumer Law Group commenced a class action against Honda alleging that the fuel economy estimates Honda advertised for the 2003 through 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid could not be achieved under normal driving conditions and that the advertisements were, therefore, false or misleading. The proceedings also alleged that the Integrated Motor Assist battery system in the model years 2006 through 2008 was defective and that a software product update issued by Honda on or about August 2010 adversely affected the performance and fuel efficiency of the vehicles.

The following models are the subject of the litigation:

• Former or present owners or lessees of a Honda Civic Hybrid model year 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 or 2009 in Canada (the "Settlement Class"), and
• Former or present owners or lessees of a Honda Civic Hybrid model year 2006, 2007 or 2008 in Canada (the "Settlement Subclass")

On August 18, 2014, the parties reached a proposed national settlement. A copy of the settlement agreement is available here:
