SAN DIEGO (AP) - Four more state attorneys general say they won’t oppose a class-action settlement between Honda Motor Co. and owners of its hybrid cars over inflated claims of fuel efficiency.

Attorneys general for Iowa, Massachusetts, Texas and Washington said Wednesday they will sit on the sidelines. California said the same earlier in the day.

A San Diego judge reluctantly gave the five states a two-week extension to file objections to the settlement. They announced their decisions just hours before the deadline.

The states asked for more time to consider after a Los Angeles woman won nearly $10,000 this month in small claims court. That’s much more than the couple hundred dollars cash that the settlement is offering nearly 200,000 owners of Civic hybrids spanning from the 2003 to 2009 model years.
