Horrible gas mileage

ReviewI enjoy owning this car, and I'm satisfied with it in every way, except for the giant gas mileage ripoff. I paid an extra $1700 to buy the "Convenience Package" with the 22 city/32 highway sticker. Now those numbers have been readjusted down to 21/30, which is a big laugh. I drive like an old lady (actually I AM an old lady) and the ECO light is on almost all the time, supposedly reflecting the fact that I don't do any jackrabbit starts, stomp the brakes, etc. My normal driving is a mix of city and highway, and I don't get 21 mpg. I took it on the highway, completely unloaded, with the A/C turned off, and got up to 28 mpg going 65mph on cruise. Big woop. Kia should be closed down!
Best FeaturesThe interior is very comfortable and spacious. I enjoy the greater visibility gained by sitting in a taller vehicle. That's why I bought the car.
Worst FeaturesThe only thing that would turn me into a satisfied Kia customer is a $1700 refund, as well as the silly little gas payback program.
