Ford Recalls Fuel Efficient Cars

June 14, 2014 Updated Jun 14, 2014 at 2:51 PM EST

UNDATED (21Alive) – Ford is cutting fuel economy numbers on six of their models.

The Detroit automaker says it has reduced fuel economy numbers because it overstated the vehicles' gas mileage.

The affected cars include the 2013 and 2014 Ford Fiesta as well as the Fusion and C-Max hybrids.

Ford says a testing error caused it to inflate the cars' fuel economy by as much as five miles per gallon.

The company plans to send checks to some 200,000 customers to refund the difference.
