2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


I wrote a year ago about my gas mileage being poor. This winter is colder than last in PA, so based on cold winters with my '08 I am more disappointed. My '12 is averaging 21.5 / 23.5 per gallon.
My '08 Elantra SE averaged 25 / 26.5 per gallon in the cold PA winters.
Warmer weather my '12 gets 28.5 / 30 per gallon where as my '08 averaged 30 / 31 per gallon (Same driving approx 65% highway / 35% city). On long trips, the '08 would average 36 where as my '12 managed 34.
This is my 4th Elantra and by far the worst for fuel economy.
When it comes time to purchase a new car, I may have to look elsewhere (Love the car but disappointed by Hyundai and the way they are handling this situation).

Best Features

Very stylish, comfortable and reliable...

Worst Features

Instead of your debit card system, you should give people cash back on the cars purchased. The fuel economy rating was and still is grossly overstated. When it comes time to trade in, the value will be less because of your bloated MPG rating.
