    Nope, the article says that Mitsubishi's going back 20 years and the GM article you posted is for 2016 GMC's so GM would be following Mitsubishi's lead. Not that any of it matters. I've owned about every brand of "common" car ( no Bugatti's or anything) and have personally never had a vehicle that got close to the MPG stated by the manufacturer.

    Hyundai and Kia did the same thing 3 or 4 years ago and had to reimburse owners based off their average miles driven per year
    Mitsubishi just closed the local plant that was here for almost 30 years. After the 0 down, 0% interest and 0 payment for the first 2 years deal they ran in 2000 that bit them in the ass after customers just started turning their 2 year old cars back in the company just started a nose dive that they have never been able to pull out of.
    The local Mitsubishi dealer that I started working for in 1988 is the largest selling dealer in the United States, not saying much at about 40-50 new Mitsubishis a month.
    I would dare to say within a year that Mitsubishi will completely pull out of North America.

    Exactly, all it took was drivers, crew members and spectators to start getting killed THEN improvements were made ;)
