#18 of 20 Mileage on my EX35 sucks - always has!

2008 AWD Journey - loaded. My current odometer reads 21k. I use the car as a second vehicle with a 75 hwy/25 city mix. My car has NEVER beaten 16 mpg since I have owned it. I have checked and double checked the nav system calculator as well as the dash calculator. 16 mpg is the number. In this day and age that number is shameful.
Alarmed by this result, I have taken the car in for inspection twice and have been given the ridiculous explanation that it is normal because "it is after all a high performance car". Give me a break!
My next door neighbor drives a 2010 400+ hp Corvette - THAT is a high performance car. He gets 23 mpg. High performance my a..s. I have a 43 year old Jaguar XKE in the garage using premium and it averages 18 mpg. This is my last Infiniti.

I have a 2010 AWD Journey/Premium...blah blah....60,000 on this company car. On the hwy. 72 mph....25+ mpg when I fill up at gas station and get on the freeway. Combined 50-50 is 22 every tank.
If I hammer it and do city only I'm under 20 mpg.
Hell...I'm running "silver" or gas right below "premium" and haven't seen a bit of change in the performance or mpg.
Love this car....never even went in for a sqeak or malfunction for anything...unreal!
#20 of 20 2012 EX35 Mileage

Picked up a 2012 EX35 three weeks ago with the Touring package (19 inch wheels). On day one the MPG status on the center display was 16.7. Now with 1000 miles the MPG status is 20 with about 80 - 90 percent highway driving. The MPG that displays on the instrument cluster reads higher, but has been coming down as the MPG status on the center diplay is moving up. The sales person told me that the center display is more accurate.
So far the car has been great - just waiting for the MPG to go up more. The initial 16.7 was scary after the 28 MPG my last car gave me - a 2005 Saab 9-3 (I hope that Saab can turn things around with a new owner, but that's a different story). I know this car will never reach the upper 20s in MPG, but 23 - 24 would be OK.
