Facing customer ire, Mitsubishi Motors tries dousing flames fast

TOKYO -- By offering cash payments to aggrieved customers, Mitsubishi Motors aims to bring a swift end to a fuel economy scandal that has shattered its reputation in the domestic market.

Each owner of the eK Wagon, eK Space, Dayz and Dayz Roox minicars will receive 100,000 yen ($959) to cover gasoline and other costs, the automaker said. The payments will result in roughly 50 billion yen in extraordinary losses in the year ending March 2017.
