I will get $66 back on 16,500 miles.driven on my 2011 Elantra that I leased. That is about 1.5 tanks of gas. I like the car, but feel I was misled, I probably would not have leased the car if the true mileage was advertised. When driving a combo of city and highway driving, I seldom average more than 26 mpg. Based on manufacturer's claims, I would have expected 32 mpg on average. For those driving more highway miles, they probably do better. On a trip to the eastern shore, I got 39 mpg. However, when averaging all miles driven, the car calculates efficiency at about 24.5 miles per gallon. How did they come up with the number of miles for calculating the refund? Does anyone know?

I think basically because they only had to lower their mileage estimates by 2 mpg (rather than 15), they only have to pay people the difference in 12 miles per tank of gas (roughly a 12 gallon tank). Its more cover up from them. I hope every state takes them to court in class action lawsuits. I want my money back. I never ever would have even looked at this car with the lousy mileage I get.
