If you own or lease a 2016 model crossover vehicle, chances are your window sticker overstates your car’s fuel economy by 1-2 miles per gallon. General Motors is estimating that about 135,000 drivers of Chevrolet Traverses, GMC Acadias and Buick Enclaves have been affected. As a result of the error, the automaker is offering a protection plan for high-mileage customers, or debit cards worth between $450 and $900. The amount on the debit cards will depend on the terms of your lease and/or whether your vehicle is front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Letters detailing the reimbursement go in the mail starting today.
