I would like to join a class action law suit.
They way I see it we are averaging 25 mpg in mainly stop and go driving. That is 4 mpg or 14% difference so give me my 14% back.
10000 * .14 = 1400 miles / 25mpg = 56 gallons * 3.65/gallon = $200 per 10k miles driven.
I would accept $200 per 10k miles as fair and would way my right to sue.
$40 per 10k is laughable.

Well, all dealers low-ball used car trade in offers when you purchase new. Maybe your $65.00 "reimbursement" is the Hyundai "misstated" low-ball.

Ater 10,700 miles no improvement...still averaging 24 combined. I'm up here in NYC area should have parked it by the beach so Hurricane could have taken it away.

I agree about lost future sales and not the penny-anny MPG debit cards. They should also extend warranty protection as a good faith gesture.
Krafcik and his counterpart in S. Korea should fall on the knife, but won't.

I am really surprised Krafcik is still there. Any other self-respecting leader would have resigned by now.

last week my wife and i took a ride. we drove from tucson az. to sierra vista az. don't remember the miles and didn't fill and check gas used. if anyone is aware of the topography in southern az. you know that you are always going uphill or down. we drove on i-10 to 90 south to sierra vista, fry blvd. to bypass 90, 90 back to i10, i10 t0 kolb rd. at which point the computer said 44.2 m.p.g. the vehicle is a 2012 elantra limited. my average speed was 50 m.p.h. the car has 18000 miles on it. if you on't get a reasonable mileage something is wrong, either with the car or your driving.

so many poster's say the dealer says nothing is wrong, no codes, maybe the techs need more education?

I think most would agree 38-40 mpg is achievable for a stretch on the highway. The main problems comes when you drive mostly in stop and go traffic - You cannot get close to the 29mpg.
I get 24-26 in the 'city'.

The original 2013 Elantra sticker states: 29 City, 33 combined, 40 Highway
My best after 1,500 miles is 23 - 24 city, 25 - 26 combined, 33 - 36 highway
Quite a shortfall, even if it's not "broken in" yet.
