Mazda Sued in U.S.

WASHINGTON () -- Maryland and 13 other states sued Mazda Motor of America Inc. on Monday, accusing the company of deception in advertising its "zero down" and "penny down" auto leases.

The actions are part of a nationwide crackdown on misleading auto-leasing practices that are costing consumers millions of dollars annually, said Maryland Attorney General Joseph Curran.
