SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A San Diego judge is giving no signs that he will reconsider his tentative approval of a settlement agreement that would give owners of Honda Civic hybrids up to $200 cash over claims that fuel economy was inflated.
Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor listened to nearly two hours of arguments Friday before saying he would issue a final ruling soon. He gave no timetable.
His tentative ruling would give between $100 and $200 -- plus rebates -- to owners of about 200,000 vehicles from model years 2003 to 2009. It also would award plaintiff attorneys more than $8 million.
The judge cast aside arguments that a Los Angeles woman's small-claims court award of nearly $10,000 entitled consumers to more money. Heather Peters addressed the judge in court, but the judge appeared unconvinced by her arguments.
