DETROIT — People who bought or leased 2016 General Motors SUVs with overstated gas mileage on the window sticker will be getting compensated, the automaker says.

Those who purchased their SUV will get to choose between a debit card and an extended warranty. Lessees will receive the debit card.

GM says that for most people, the compensation will be valued at $450 to $900. Owners of some all-wheel-drive SUVs could get as much as $1,500. Payments will vary with lease terms and mileage differences between models.

About 135,000 customers will get letters stating their amounts starting May 25. GM says another 35,000 fleet customers will be handled individually.

GM announced last week that fuel economy was overstated by one-to-two miles per gallon on the 2016 GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave.
