This is the world now: Suzuki also admits to cheating on fuel-economy tests

This is where I'd include a GIF of a worker throwing a pile of papers up in the air.

Because nothing in this world is sacred anymore and heaven forbid a multinational corporation actually do something honest and trustworthy for the first time in decades, it appears there's yet another fuel-economy cheater in the automotive ranks. This time, it's Suzuki, an automaker so middling the US market ignored it into bankruptcy in 2012.

While the company still sells motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and outboard marine motors in the US, it's still selling cars in Japan, which is where this news is focused. Per a Bloomberg report, the company admitted to using non-compliant fuel-economy testing methods on about 2.1 million vehicles.

Evidently, the company did some of its testing in a tunnel, out of a concern for wind, which goes against protocol. To be fair, if everyone else is testing cars in the same wind, and that wind has you concerned, you might want to worry more about the product than the wind. Remember -- if everyone around you is a jerk, odds are that you're the jerk.

In a strange twist, while Suzuki did admit to wrongdoing, it's also claiming that it won't need to revise its fuel-economy ratings for the affected vehicles. Apparently, follow-up testing using the correct methodology elicited results that were "within an acceptable range of deviation" from the figures acquired through cheating, Bloomberg says.

This news arrived quickly after Mitsubishi's fuel-economy misdeeds because the Japanese government asked other automakers to check their numbers, as well. Nissan (former Mitsubishi partner, soon-to-be Mitsubishi owner) noticed discrepancies in Mitsubishi's reporting, which led to an admittance of guilt and evidence that malfeasance may stretch as far back as 1991.
