#492 of 506 A Simple Mistake?
Nov 03, 2012 (7:01 am)
I have a 2.4L FWD 2013 Sport. The new combined mileage figure represents a 7.7% reduction in fuel economy. Taken with all of the other models affected and over a period of three years, the data suggests fraud, not incompetence.
The reimbursement program does not come close to addressing the financial impact of the revised numbers to existing and potential owners. A number of similar sized SUV's now outperform the Santa Fe ( fuel efficiency-wise ) and the new performance information will directly affect initial sale price, and certainly resale price.
I have sent a letter to Hyundai requesting a buy-back. That may be optimistic, but I think a class action suit is a certainty.

Any new AWD Sante Fe drivers been on the road long enough to get a feel for the "true" mileage?
I'm 1/2 a tank in on my first tank and I feel as if I'm driving a tank.
Getting 12mpg combined or 20L/100km.
City driving and I'm not towing a land yacht.

Autometer has one for 2008s and newer, but has anyone seen one for a 2004? I'd appreciate your help. Thanks!~

The gas milege adjustments are not for all kia's or all Hyundai's. It is only on a very few select models. People need to read the details and stop thinking their always being ripped off.

I have had a 2013 Santa fe 2.0t AWD for about two full months now and I am averaging about 26.2 mpg. I'm not heavy footed but not a old man or anything of the sort. I do drive with the eco button on, and I watch the gage in the driver info. I drive with a light foot. This motor will maintain your speed very addequatlly. I really enjoy this vehicle. Check your tire pressure. All these vehicles are shipped with 40-45 pounds in the tires to prevent flat spots during transport. They should have 33 pounds for every day driving. Watch your driver info and drive with a light foot and you wil get good gas milege. People tend to have a heavy foot especially taking off. Also take your foot off of the accelerator earlier when coming to a light or stop sign.

26.2 is doing very well indeed. May I ask if that number is the value presented in the vehicle or is it the value you calculate by dividing miles travelled by the amount of fuel added? Reason for asking is that on mine, I have noted differences of up to 3.6 mpg after fill ups in those two values.( I have the 2.4 engine ). Thanks.

I just received my letter from Hyundai Friday and I was really very surprised due to the mileage my Santa Fe is getting. I am a little skeptical now if the computer is accurate or not now. I am averaging around 29-30 with about 15% in town driving. I have around 9,000 miles now on the vehicle and I am very happy about it so far. I bought the vehicle soley on the mil age decision and I am not to happy about a mistake in the sticker estimate, when it makes it to this point, it sure looks like fraud to me. Their adjustment is for legal reasons I'm sure to avoid the class actions if you buy into that. I bought this vehicle for more mileage and time than their adjustment would cover and so the idea of a limit is asking alot to get out of this. I'm just hoping we continue to get that mileage and that it is accurate (I will check it the old way soon). Mine is a 2013 Sport 2WD.
