I guess I am one of the "unlucky" ones as far as gas mileage is concerned. I bought a 2008 GC SXT with 3.8 and 6 speed. On the first three tanks which are about 50-50 city highway I have gotten from 16.6 to 17.9 mpg. With the onboard computer cruising at a steady 65 it shows only about 20.5 so I will never get the kind of mileage some of you are claiming.

The 4.0/ 6 speed with 17" wheels seems to be the best in MPG

28 mpg from Toronto to NY and 27.4 mpg from NY to Toronto. 4.0L/6 speed, 38 psi

Late last year, traded in my '09 DGC for '10 DGC model with more options and power doors. Now, the vehicle clocks at 9K and the brakes begin to pulsate. I took the vehicle to my local dealership, they state front rotors need to be machines and the calipers on the rear brakes are leaking making a whistling sound while in drive. So, I am driving a loaner for a few days while they are taking care of this issue. This is not a biggie, more of a nuisance. Otherwise, the vehicle is fine.
