AutoComplete: Average US fuel economy rises again in JulyItaly's VW fine is a drop in the bucket, and Hyundai expands Apple CarPlay and Android Auto offerings.
Today's Tuesday, the 9th of August. And here's what's making news on Road Show. A new University of Michigan study just out says the average fuel economy of all new vehicles purchased in July was 25.4 mpg, up 0.1 over June. That tell us while our vehicles are getting faster, bigger and safer something has to lag. If VW learns any lasting lessons from Diesel Gate, it won't be happening in Italy. That countries regulators just levied the heaviest possible fine against VW. At least under Italian law. Five and half million dollars. About .037%. Of the $15 billion settlement that VW has agreed to in the US. And it's a good day for owners of a slew of 15 to 17 Hyundais with factory NAB. You can add Android Auto and CarPlay to your factory head unit by downloading free software onto an SD card and spending an hour or two babysitting the update. Or, you can be a fool and pay the dealer to do it later in the year. Go to myhyundai.com to get the download. Find more on these stories at theroadshow.com. We'll talk to you tomorrow.
