    Nissan Goes Over Mitsubishi's Overseas' Fuel Economy Figures

      Nissan is making sure Mitsubishi is telling the truth

    Ever since Mitsubishi admitted to falsifying fuel economy figures on a number of vehicles in Japan, the automaker has been clear that this didn't extend to other markets. Nissan is double checking this claim.


    Automotive News reports that Mitsubishi's possible largest shareholder is looking into Mitsubishi's claimed fuel economy numbers in other markets to see if this scandal extended outside Japan. This is part of Nissan's due diligence review before finalizing plans to buy a 34 percent stake in the company.


    Nissan CFO Joe Peter tells Automotive News that the review hasn't found any skeletons yet, but they aren't finished with the review yet.


    “That would be an issue that could cause considerable concern,” said Peter when asked about false fuel economy figures outside of Japan.

    They might not find US MPG issues, but I bet they do find other things hidden in the Mitsu closet.
