i love everything about this car except the gas mileage. i have had it about three weeks. have been driving very conservatively - mostly around los angeles - side streets and i have not been able to get above 23 MPG. VERY frustrating considering everything i have ever heard and read about a TDI engine. Any tips....Report it
jt555, Sorry to hear. I can not imagine why your not getting better mpg !! Might take it back to the dealer for a check. It should get much better mpg for sure. Hope you get it resolved & enjoy excellent mpg in the future.Report it
A few days after posting this review I noticed that the "Playlist" functionality of my iPod started showing up on the screen. This is a big plus to me as I mostly listen to playlists. I am not sure how to edit the review. I still love the car and am averaging 40mpg in mixed driving. Most of my highway miles are on toll roads with 80mph speed limits.Report it
I have 4700 miles on mine now and the lowest average I have had for a tank was 36.7 and that was all in mostly urban stop and go driving. In my normal mixed driving it always gets over 40. I drove it to Indiana and back last week (1200 miles each way) and got 49.1 and I was driving as fast as possible without getting caught. It is a great road trip car. jt555 I assume that something is very wrong with your car. I never drive for economy. I love the riding the wave of torque from the turbo. Get yours checked. something is not right.Report it
