Air cond vents & actual gas mileage

1) The placement of air conditioner vents on the dash is bad.
If you are the driver, both of your vents are positioned where the air only hits your hands & the back of the steering wheel.
I did not notice this when I bought the vehicle or I would not have purchased it.
If they would have left out the little storage compartment & put the vents closer to the middle of the dash, you could feel the a/c but as it is, your face gets hot and your hands freeze. 2) Most importantly, this car DOES NOT get close to 32 MPH.
I've driven it for nearly 2 years now and even on long trips, the best mileage I've ever gotten was 23.5.
They need to be more realistic in advertising.
The seats are very comfortable and the room is amazing.
There is so much leg room in the back seat as well as in the cargo space.
Move air conditioner vents to middle of the dash and do something about the poor gas mileage.
