This is not your average fuel sipping hybrid. In order to see the fuel savings don't use the horsepower and stay at or below the speed limit. Also, unlike other hybrids, this car excels on the highway. With a trip in ohio from east to west with 51 miles rural highway and 84 miles interstate, I averaged 45.1 miles per gallon at the speed limits posted. town mileage with short trips less than 5 miles average 17-20 mpg and urban traffic is around 30. In November 2013 the IMA light started coming on with 135,000 miles I took it to the local dealer for a diagnostic, Battery Deterioration plus an update for the Hybrid system. the update has prevented the IMA from coming on since the update.
Heated leather seats, Ride comfort. All interstate mileage is wonderful, at a normal average of 38 mpg. Great passing power to get away from people that don't know how to merge onto the interstate. We bought it used in 2011, We have saved over $500 a year in gas versus our old V-6 that was 2 years newer.
Disconnect the ANC. that is what causes the Rumbling noise that everyone complains about. It is a green/red wire under the driver side dash. Youtube it. it will save your ears and sanity. be careful to cut and ground the correct one.
I do not regret buying this car and would do it again!!!
