2012 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
Just purchased a 2012 Santa Fe two weeks ago.
This is my fourth Santa Fe but this time I bought a 4 cylinder instead of a 6 thinking it would save a little more on gas mileage.
Love everything about the vehicle but the gas mileage.
I'm getting less with this one than my previous 2008 Santa Fe.
I was told I would get a couple more miles per gallon but didn't expect to get less.
It didn't benefit me like I thought it would to get the 4 cylinder.
Wouldn't recommend a 4 cylinder over a 6 to anyone.
I LOVE my Santa Fe, except for the gas mileage. I do mostly in town driving. I'm averaging 15-16mpg, which I think is pretty crappy. I've been babying the way I drive: slow to accelerate, decelerate, make sure tires are properly inflated, etc. My highway mpg averages about 23. From other responses, I'm hoping it will get better as the engine breaks in.
Have you noticed any Sudden unintended acceleration issues with the 2012 model. I myself ordered one but it is not ready yet. See this link http://firstname.lastname@example.orgVa0g7tam@
I have had a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe SE for about 6 months. It has the 6 cylinder engine.
I have only taken one short trip in it and
got about 24 mpg on the road.
In town, it has been averaging between 18 to 20 mpg.
