Had our GL for almost two years and got our best mileage during the break in period which we were told was 3k. It didn't get better after 3k. We were told that the break in period is actually 5k. It didn't get better after 5k. T keep this shorter, we went in after each required distance had been travelled and each time were told that it was more. After 5k it was 7k then 10k then 12.5k then 15k then, finally we were told that under no circumstances is break in less than 20k, ever. Where did all the other numbers come from then? Bottom line, we are at over 29k now and we get the worst mileage in the life of the car. We're getting 11-14L/100 km. We're extremely disappointed.
We like everything except the mileage. If that was better we would be very happy with our car.
Advertise the real world information about the vehicle and tell the truth about what kind of mileage people will get. It's too much money to pay over too long a period of time to be ticked off about the mileage we're not getting. The rest of the car, while great, doesn't make up for that huge downfall. That one problem would be a deal breaker if it were known from the start. Of course, people wouldn't buy it if they knew the truth.
