#39 of 40 2004 vs 2006 Maxx MPG
Jun 30, 2011 (10:12 am)
I had 2004 Maxx LS. Averaged 24-25 MPG mixed driving (calculated by me). Also, could go 5-6000 miles between oil changes per Oil Life Monitor. That car was totalled around 30,000 mi (no injuries). I replaced with 2006 Maxx LTZ, which has same engine, trans, steering as the 2004. The 2006 lifetime MPG to-date is only 20.4 (calculated) and oil needs to be changed every 3000 mi per OLM. DIC on both overated MPG by 2.0 mi.

Your data on the 2006 is close to mine 2006 LT: 2 MPG DIC overrating, OLM readings equivalent to about 3500 - 4000 miles between oil changes, recent (this sping and summer) real MPGs being 22-24, at the average speeds recorded from 24 to 42 MPH.
