Don't believe the gas mileage hype
By rws0292 on
2013 Hyundai Elantra Limited 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
Recently purchased a 2013 Elantra Limited under the premise that I would be getting a fuel efficient vehicle for a decent price.
I traded a 2012 Camaro to make this deal as I travel 65 miles a day to work and back in hybrid traffic.
I drive pretty conservatively and live in Florida which is predominately flat.
With the first 1,000 miles down, I am getting 25.4 MPG which is a far cry from the 28C-38H-32Hybrid they are so fond of telling you about.
My Camaro was getting 20.6 hybrid, so I gained far less car with no real savings.
The Elantra is a great car for what it is, but if you are seeking this vehicle solely for gas mileage, don't make the mistake.
You won't see the stated mileage.
Solid technology and good features for a good price.
Either make the car fuel efficient or give the gas mileage figures to your customers in real life.
It's a complete disservice to advertise the wonderful mileage that is only achievable in a lab experiment.
Y'all aren't even close to realistic.
