BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Hyundai, Kia will pay $41.2 million in resolve state mileage claims

Hyundai, Kia will pay $41.2 million in resolve state mileage claims

(Reuters) — Korean carmakers Hyundai Motor Co. and affiliate Kia Motors Corp. will pay $41.2 million to resolve a long-running investigation by 33 U.S. states over the automakers' 2012 mileage restatements, state attorneys general said Thursday.

In 2014, the automakers were hit with $350 million in penalties by the U.S. government for overstating fuel economy ratings. 

Under the accord, which involved the sale of 1.2 million cars and SUVs, the car firms paid a $100 million penalty, spent around $50 million to prevent future violations and forfeited emissions credits estimated to be worth more than $200 million. 

That settlement was on top of $395 million the automakers agreed to pay in 2013 to resolve claims from the owners of the vehicles.
