You are in the Cadillac SRX

#12 of 21 first 10,000 miles

not that anyone cares, but in the first 10,000 I have averaged more than 19 MPG overall.

I must say I am disappointed in the fuel efficiency of the SRX vs my Seville.
I traded in a 1996 and it got 18 in town and 22 on the Interstate. I've purchased this Dec 10th and had to leave for Atlanta right away and was very disappointed I only got 16mpg on the way up (565 miles). I stayed for almost 4 months and never got better than 13 in town. I assumed the hilly areas were to blame, but the last two weeks in "flat" old Florida have averaged 15mpg. Is this all I can expect? Anything I can change engine wise to do better? I still have 56 payments to go.....

You should expect the SRX to use more fuel than a car does. Your Seville was probably rated around 17 city and 26 highway. The SRX is rated about 2 MPG's less in city driving than the Seville. On the highway the SRX is doing well to get about 20 MPG. Most of my miles are highway with some city as I live outside of the nearby city.

The wifes 04 (V6 AWD) SRX gets about 16 about town and has gotten up to 22 on interstate long distance driving.
It's got about 54,000 miles on it now.
When I drive it I can get a bit over 17 about town. She's a bit quicker than I am I guess.

Is your mileage any better now? I have a 2008 V8 and I'm getting about 10.3 city there is a little over 3,000 miles on it.

My 04 (V8AWD) is getting between 6 and 9 in the city and 11 on the highway...

I've been shopping for a 07 or 08 SRX, but after reading these posts about the mileage, I think I'll go ahead and buy that Avalanche I REALLY want. The mileage is better, even though it weighs a whole lot more.
What's wrong with this picture?

This summer I am getting about 20 MPG with my 2007 V8 SRX. But what anyone gets depends on how they drive. If you can get an Avalanche Hybrid (not sure that is possible), then it might do better.
#20 of 21 Better than I expected

Prior to buying my 04 V8 AWD SRX I did a lot of research on mpg. I expected a high of 18-20 highway and maybe 15 city. I have had it for 2.5 months, it had 46,000 miles on it. I have been experimenting with different octane, different stations and different speeds.
Well to my pleasant surprise I have achieved the following on 2-3 hr drives to LA using the cruse and around town:
with 87 and 89 octane
68-71 mph 25-26.5 mpg
79 - over 80 mph 19.5-20.4 mpg
city speeds 17.4-18.9 mpg
I will admit the first time I was a non believer so I cleared the average mpg in the computer and ran the test a few more times with the same results. Interesting enough I've gotten up to 28-30 mpg (yes no kidding) relative flat with cruse and outside temp in mid 70's. Shocking I know.

#21 of 21 2010 SRX Mileage

My wife has a 2010 SRX with 8K miles on it. She has been averaging 20 MPG in local driving. On a recent trip from Raleigh to Charlotte and back, we averaged 24 MPG with the cruise set at 70 MPH. Not bad.
