your mileage should improve after 5000 miles or so.

I wouldn't expect much better mileage, though it will improve a little as you get past 5k. My former 03 SX got 27mpg in the city and a max of 30 on the highway, but that was with the smaller 2.0 liter engine and 5 speed manual. The new 2.3 is thirstier. Your mileage figures sound about right, especially if you have an automatic.

I have a 2003 SX fastback with 135,000 Kms (75,000 Miles) on it. Gas millage has been OK but not great.
Lately its been fantastic!!!! The car uses very little gas sitting at the dealer waiting for major parts to be replaced.

I own a 2003 Aerio SX AWD. I bought it used with 23K, now it has 30K. One of the reasons I bought it was that I needed AWD (live on small mtn.) but wanted good gas mileage, hence I opted out of getting SUV. I have been very disappointed with the gas mileage on this car. I only get 22.5 !! I check it regularly and its pretty consistant. I dont accelerate hard and most of my driving is highway. I finally asked Suzuki and they said bring it in (still under warranty). They have never heard of anyone getting that low MPG's. All the reviews and the EPA said it would get between 25-34mpg. It is an automatic and AWD, but still. Anyone else getting low gas mileage with their SX AWD? Please let me know.

I have a 2002 Aerio SX FWD 5sp and it gets between 28 and 32mpg. I'm sure your AWD and automatic would be less but 22 does seem low.

My '03 Aerios SX AWD has been averaging around 26 mpg, but I am not entirely sure I calculated it right. My gas warning light comes around with three bars left on the digital screen. When I fill my tank, even with just one bar left on the gas tank, it is about 11 gallons. The tank is supposed to be 13 gallons, so I have no idea what is going on. I can usually drive close to 300 miles on 11 gallons though.
My questions are :
1) Anyone else have a high pitched squeak from their rear brake drums? It happens at low speeds, such as pulling up to an ATM. Dealer says it is normal.
2) Has anyone purchased the mountain bike roof rack? What is your feedback about this?
Thanks so much for your help! I just joined this forum today, and am loving it.

I am also getting between 22-23 MPG on a brand-new SX AWD '05 and I don't push the engine hard. That's 22-23 with a few highway trips on the odometer! I am a bit disappointed in this-- luckily it's the only disappointment so far. According to aeriostyle.com posts, mileage should improve by 5000 miles. If not, they suggest having Suzuki look at it. Keep us updated!

That is good to know. Thanks for feedback. I was wondering about the 5 sp. I wish they would put a 5sp on the AWD version!

when you say "average", what kind of driving do you do? See, I live in mountainous area, yet I also live near several highways. Its unique. I do have to drive up about a 2.5 mile hill every day. I wonder if just driving up that hill would cause such a fluctuation or do you think driving at speeds of about 73 on the highway would ruin my mpg's?

I have a 2004 Aerio with automatic and 2 wheel drive. I get the same lousy mileage. I can't get more than 23 MPG on the average. I like the car, but it does seem strange for its size.
