MPG depends not only on "how" you drive, but where and when you drive also. You will not get optimal mpg when: the car is brand new, you drive in hilly or mountainous terrain, you drive in very cold temps, you drive with a heavy foot, you drive short distances, you load the car with people and/or junk, etc. An accurate MPG reading comes from driving the car over longer periods of time, not by spot checking the trip computer of a brand new car and then whining about it on Edmunds.Report it
Just got accent 2012 last June 16. After two weeks of city driving, got only an average of 28 mpg. I was upset because it was not within what Hyundai advertized.Report it
I have owned 3 Hyundais. They all achieved their EPA rated hwy mileage, but never came close to the city number, even when driven in mixed driving (60% hwy/40% city), and driven very conservatively. I don't know how Hyundai gets away with this. Just sold (regretfully) a 2009 Toyota Yaris Sedan with auto transmission. It far exceeded both EPA numbers (auto: 29/34). Least that I ever got was 34 in the mixed driving mentioned, above, and easily achieved 46mpg on numerous, pure hwy trips. I missed that car, especially when I bought a Fiat 500. Please read my post on this site regarding that car!Report it
I don't think you need an "iPod" to utilize the USB port in a 2012 Hyundai. I believe you can simply insert a USB flashdrive (jumpdrive) loaded with mp3 music files and you should be able to select\sort songs via the audio head unit. Give it a try and let us know..Report it
Oh my god, people. 1. The gas MPG depends on the way you drive. If your drive habit is good (in terms of gas) you'll get well over 30 as advertisement states. If you're terrible at it, you'll get well below 30. 30 is an average MPG. 2. You need to drive the vehicle for awhile for it to kick in. Only then you'll be able to get higher MPG. More you drive, more MPG you'll get. Don't expect to get 30/40 on a brand new car when the engine is absolutely shining new.Report it
