Everything about this car I love EXCEPT the gas mileage. I got the manual transmission as they tend to get better mileage but to date this has not been the case. It is so bad that the first chance I get I am heading to a Hyundai dealer to have it checked out as it is that bad. The last tank I pulled off the interstate filled up and got right back on drained the tank and got 31.9mpg My old car had 198K miles on it and still mamanged to get 33 with a much larger engine and lots more power so to say I am disappointed is an understatement. I sure hope there is something wrong with it.Report it
What are you getting for MPGs? I'm averaging 33.2 MPG on my last 3 fuel-ups. Try engaging and releasing your hand brake and make sure your rear brake calipers are releasing (I've read on the Veloster forums that people in the northern latitudes are experiencing rear caliper sticking). Also, I recommend turning ECO mode off; all it does it hurts acceleration and I've gotten as good or even better gas mileage with it turned off. Hope that helps.Report it
