Purchased As New
I purchaes an SLT 1, 4 cyl AWD, two weeks ago, decided to go with the AWD for winter performance and at the estimated 20/29 MPG this seemed like a no brainer. So far I got 420 miles off a tank and a half of gas, 18 gallon tank. I bought this car for the 20/29 Estimated MPG. So far in local driving I am averging less than 17 MPG, I took a long trip on the highway yesterday about 150 miles and increased the average up to about 19.5 MPG, so basically half my miles driven have been on the NJ GSP and the other half local driving and I am getting 19.5 MPG. I noticed the only way to get a good MPG is to go 50 miles an hour. My highways are mostly 65 MPH speed limits. When I test drove the car I was surpised with the acceleration and decided it seemd fast enough for a 4cyl. Did not seem slow at all. Considering I bought this car as it has the highest estimated MPG for an SUV and seemed to have good acceleration I am upset with the false advertising and am wondering who test dirves these cars and publishes the MPG. I would think this is done independantly and is regulated. If this car does not start to get better MPG I need to consider my options and may look to file a class action lawsuit againt GM. Does not seem right that this could be so far off. Seems I will never average the minimum 20 MPG.
I actually liked the car outside of this MPG issue but being this was the basis of my consideration and purchase I am furious over this issue.
