It's a common sales technique to get you into the showroom to try to sell you something new. There's nothing special about (except the hint often works!).
Check out the Hyundai Santa Fe: Prices Paid & Buying Experience discussion if you are leaning towards buying.

1200 miles so far and with my wife's heavy foot getting 23 highway so far. Look to get a little better when it broken in further.

Did first oil change around 1800 Miles - switched to Full Synthetic.
Was getting ~19.4 before switching to synthetic and in mostly city driving. And now at ~2500 miles, we're getting 20.4 in "ALL" city driving.
Best all Highway was ~27.2.
I'm not complaining and expect that around 5000 miles it will be even better. And that's with my wife's heavy foot.

....to find out the "true" MPG we should be getting?
I just bought a 2007 Ltd AWD and have already put in two tanks of gas. The first lasted only a week!!! I didn't drive that much, but I did do a lot of city driving and stop and go. Haven't done any real highway driving yet.
How long will it take for me to get the MPG that Hyundai says we should be getting? I'm currently only averaging about 14 MPG right now which is a little disturbing.

I have driven 826km in my 2007 GL Premium 3.3 AWD in Canada. And I experience a similiar performance, at average 13-15MPG. 90% City, 10% highway. Air-cond is turned on no more than 10 mins per week.
Hopefully, it will get better. Thanks.
