I also just purchased a 2011 Chevy Equinox, 2LT, 4cyl that advertized 32 mpg. I have only owned this car for just over a week and one of the worst mistakes I have ever made! The best mpg I can get is 25.7 mpg and low as 23 mpg - all highway driving! I called the dealership and they said, "Well, you do live in the Hill Country (Texas)". Not the correct answer I wanted to hear after spending $29K on a vehicle I selected for the advertised 32 mpg. If there is ever a class-action suit, I want to be included. I feel I've been had by false advertisement.Report it
I was getting a little frustrated with the mpg so I started switching my display screen to show instantaneous fuel economy...for city driving I'm getting the best mpg in the 40-50 mph range (obviously a bit too fast for the average city), and for highway driving I have to stay within the 60-70 mph range to get the best mpg. Since I started watching the instantaneous instead of just looking at the average, I feel a bit better about it. The eco button helps slightly on long highway trips too.Report it
I think someone should contact an attorney and file a class action lawsuit.Report it
