Drive a Honda?

Miles just zipping by?

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 19 Honda Motor Co. is notifying U.S. Honda and Acura owners they could get warranty extensions because their cars' odometers rolled up miles too fast.

Lease customers may also be entitled to payments because the fast odometer readings -- as much as 3 3/4 miles for every 100 miles driven -- may have hit some lease customers with excessive-mileage penalties, the automaker said.

A lawyer in the lawsuit that resulted in Honda's decision now is aiming at Nissan Motor Co, alleging its Altima sedans back to 2002 roll up miles 2.5 percent to 3 percent too fast, USA Today reported.

Nissan has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
