We got this car a week ago solely based on the 29-40 MPG.
So far we have gotten 27 during on the first tank.
I hope it improves.
The car appears to be made well and the quality of the interior is impressive.
I just hope the mileage gets into the advertised range.
Anyone here fall short of the low end of the range and try to deal witht he dealer on it?
I reported the fuel economy problem to Hyundai last month.
