OREANDA-NEWS. May 19, 2016. Because nothing in this world is sacred anymore and heaven forbid a multinational corporation actually do something honest and trustworthy for the first time in decades, it appears there's yet another fuel-economy cheater in the automotive ranks. This time, it's Suzuki, an automaker so middling the US market ignored it into bankruptcy in 2012.

While the company still sells motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and outboard marine motors in the US, it's still selling cars in Japan, which is where this news is focused. Per a Bloomberg report, the company admitted to using non-compliant fuel-economy testing methods on about 2.1 million vehicles.
