Mitsubishi fudged MPG on more than just the two models it mentioned in April. This means the CEO should go before reporters and bow down once again, maybe deeper and longer.
And since Nissan bought a controlling stake in Mitsu during the Mitsu crisis, Carlos Ghosn should brush up on the different types of Japanese bow — and should make sure his lower back is in good working order — because he might have to start bending soon.
Even Suzuki’s elderly chairman can still bow for quite a long stretch. Here he is, bowing because he bullshitted his way through MPG rigors too.
Meanwhile, VW diesel-weasel victims are choosing between getting their cars fixed or taking the cash buyout.
Lest we forget, both Ford and Hyundai lied about their fuel economy too, and paid $$ to customers to settle up.
Lying and cheating, you see, are all part of ICE culture. It starts at the dealership level and goes all the way to the product manufacturers themselves. Tesla now has ample opportunity to differentiate itself as cleaner not just in emissions, but in customer relations. You can visit a Tesla store without rushing home to take a shower.
