Are you going by the trip computer for the MPG or doing the math after filling up? I have the SE 2WD and with an 80% highway/ 20% city commute of 60 miles round trip I am regularly now getting 31-34 mpg, which is beating the sticker mpg!!! My highway speed is typically around 70-73 mph and I regularly use the cruise control. Unless you are driving with a pretty heavy foot, I can't see how there is such a discrepancy with your 4WD model with the mileage. I find that my trip computer is underestimating the actual mileage by 2-3 mpg and when I talked with the dealer about it, he said it will vary the most with hard accelerations, since it pulls the computer mpg down. I also looked at Subaru, but did not need AWD. One thing I found in researching their cars (along with other automakers) is that the sticker mpg is pretty tough to hit and a lot of people get upset like you. Do a search on it and you'll see a lot of disappointed Subaru owners too. So much depends on your individual driving style.Report it
