Ford has lowered the MPG rating of the Lincoln MKZ hybrid. Ford says that approximately 200,000 customer s are affected, and those customers will be given cash payments.

The adjustment applies to vehicles other than the Lincoln MKZ hybrid, but for those who have the MKZ hybrid, they will be getting payments of $1,050.

The problem is from an improperly calibrated dynamometer that was used to determine fuel economy ratings.

“We apologize to our customers and will provide goodwill payments to affected owners. We also are taking steps to improve our processes and prevent issues like this from happening again,” Ford CEO Alan Mulally said in a statement today.

So what is the new MPG rating for the MKZ Hybrid then? Are you saying 33-34 combined? Its still not bad, but you can't help but feeling lied to in a circumstance like this, and its not like you can just return the car now that you know.
