Heather Peters, a former-lawyer, processed Honda for the fact of its Civic Hybrid not to be corresponding what the company promised in its fuel consumption. The former-lawyer had one Civic Hybrid 2006 that since the beginning km/l did not reach the consumption of 21,25 promised by Honda in all the related propagandas to the car. Being thus, the Cut of Los Angeles, in California, declared favorable the claim of the former-lawyer. Nowadays, the car of Peters if finds with only 12,75 the well engaged battery and is obtaining to reach km/l. Honda will have that to pay to the Heather Peters an amount of US$ 9,687 (R$ 16,600).
Let us agree that this value insignificant is compared with the size of the mark. But analyzing of one another form, the case of Peters is very dangerous for the Japanese assembly plant. Civic the Hybrid was launched in 2002 and only in the United States, 200 a thousand units had been more than emplacadas. Leaving of the estimated one that all the owners of one Civic Hybrid 2002 decide to reinvidicar its rights in Justice, as Heather Peters made, Honda will suffer a gap in value of US$ 2 billion (R$ 3,4 billion) in indemnities. for what it seems, Peters is focada in causing this damage in the Japanese manufacturer.
To stimulate other customers who had also been wronged, the former-lawyer placed in air the site (not if contete with Honda, in English). There, Peters disponibilizou diverse excellent information, as which the way most easy to process Honda and to request the indemnity, beyond the proper favorable decision of 26 pages that the Cut of Los Angeles emitted in its favor. Beyond having divulged a propaganda enganosa, Honda must be sorry also not to have considered the 20 e-mails that Peters sent for the mark before starting to process it.
