anyone who is driving "light and carefully" with a toyota v6 is not getting 16mpg. i drive "heavy and recklessly" in my camry v6 and even on a bad day I get 24mpg combined. as far as the rear mounted spare tire, if you want a temporary spare go get a CRV otherwise they do offer a sport model with no spare. if you look around your car, you will see there are two lighter ports in front, one in front of the shifter and one in the armrest storage as well as one way back in the cargo area. by the way, your mpg will improve after 10000 miles.Report it
I have the 2011 4 cyclinder 4x4 and I too am getting crappy mileage: 25 highway, 18 city. This is bull for a 4 cylinder. And no, I'm not driving in 3rd gear. I called my Toyota's service department, was told "No, it's not going to get better. What you're getting is what you're going to get." He added that the estimated 27 mpg highway that Toyota adversizes is only an "average." If I had known I was going to get this kind of mileage I would not have purchased the vehicle.Report it
The fuel economy is because you are not using the overdrive. Make sure you are using the drive selection and not 3rd gear. Many use 3rd without know they are doing so.Report it
