PA. ELIGIBLE FOR PART OF MULTI-STATE SETTLMENT FROM FORD

The state attorney general’s office says Pennsylvania will receive about 485-thousand-dollars from the Ford Corporation. The money is part of a 19-million-dollar multi-state settlement over deceptive advertising for its hybrids and trucks. Attorney General Josh Shapiro says the settlement stems from Ford falsely advertising about the fuel economy of their C-Max hybrid and the payload capacity of their Super Duty pickup trucks. Ford denies it has violated any federal or state laws.
