Didn't they switch to the 2.3L engine during the 2004 model year? Maybe you just can't keep those 155 horses in check!

I, too, get very low gas mileage. I own a 2003 SX AWD. I read several reviews and saw that the EPA gives it 25-34mpg. I thought because of the automatic and the AWD that I would get the lower side of those stats, but I'm only getting 22.5mpg and I also drive mostly highway! I am very disappointed with this because I drive a lot and just sold my truck because I wanted better gas mileage. Now I have to go to Suzuki and see if they will check it out under warranty and see if there is a reason for such low gas mileage. Is yours AWD?

I own a 2003 Aerio SX AWD w/30,000 miles on it. I bought it with 23K on it. I had read a few reviews and also saw the EPA mileage rating and they all said you should get somewhere between 25-34mpg, thats one of the reasons I bought it. However, I get no where near that! I know AWD and the automatic trans may keep it lower than 30mpg, but I am getting 22.5mpg, consistanty. I dont accelerate hard, and most of my driving is highway. I decided to talk to Suzuki and they said bring it in (its still under warranty). They have never heard of anyone getting such low gas mileage. Anyone out there having similar problem?

Hey, I got the same problem with my 2005 Suzuki Aerio AWD. I brought it two weeks ago and it had only 36 miles on it. I have been driving for 1300 miles for the past 2 weeks, going out on a road trip. The car has really horrible gas mileage. I would say, 15-17 miles per gallon in city and 18-22 mpg in highway. I am getting the car in the dealership. I want to know if you got the problem fixed. ANybody else have this problem too?

I've heard they have a fairly long breakin period (up to 5000 miles) and then things get better.

I have a SX, no AWD. With mostly city driving, I get 22-25 mpg. When I take highway trips up to 100-200 miles, I manage to get 30 mpg.

2006 Aerio SX AWD 800 miles. The most I've got is 19.9 usualy 19.1-19.2 MPG I'm 56 years old and I'm not driving it hard. It's been to the dealer 4 times in 3 weeks because the emission light keeps coming on and staying on.

a friend of mine had her light come on a lot.. then she realized it was almost every time she filled the tank. Turns out the gas cap was not working correctly. It took a few times at the dealer because they said she was not tightening it right! I wonder if lack of pressure in the system could cause poor gas mileage. Also if the O2 sensor is not working it will set the light off and you will bet bad gas mileage. I had this problem on a chevy venture van we had. about once a year the O2 sensor would go out. The CEL would come on and gas mileage, which was already bad would fall out the bottom.

if its stop and go that may not be too bad for a 4 wheel drive car. if its highway it isnt good . i have a new fwd and i seem to get around 25 or so mixed driving. it has 300 miles and isnt broke in yet. after the first oil change i will switch to synthetic oil. u may want to look into that , it could help a little with mileage and certainly protect the engine. good luck

I have a 2005 Aerio SX and mine started out with low gas mileage. I suspect yours is very low due to being AWD. I have heard of this complaint from other Aerio AWD owners. My gas mileage kept getting better till I reached about 6,000. i also believe temperature has something to do with it. It seems to get better mileage in warmer weather. IT goes down when it is cold. I have gotten up to 33 on highway and average 25 to 28 around town. Mileage also dips one or two mpg for using AC.
