I feel the pain... it's the same problem with the 2012. I have never gotten more than 23 or 24 combined. I was also driving a Corolla (2009), the only reason I bought this car was for the gas mileage. Here I am a year and 11,000 miles later still hoping my mileage will get better. This has been the biggest mistake I've made as far as cars go...I heard Hyundai has changed their estimates and are reimbursing owners for mileage differences, but not by any meaningful amounts. Go check out the 2012 real mpg thread.

After every fill-up, reset your MPH calculation and post your avg MPH as reported by your car's computer.
The EPA tests do not account for severe stop-n-go conditions. I'll bet you're driving a lot more city/stop-n-go than you realize. The more city/stop-n-go you drive, the worse your overall MPG.

I am in the same situation. Very frustrated with these guys. I use to drive a VW but went a different route with this car. They say you get 58 MPG. Ya right. wish I never walked into the door. I said from day one that my mileage was off. They kept giving me excuses. Now that it is out that they have admitted the mileage mistake. I looked around and found that in Canada ( London Ontario ) their is a lawsuit going on with the situation. Could take up to three years but would be worth it. I think it was Toyota that payed out millions back to customers for a lawsuit on them. My understanding their is no lawsuit in the states yet. You should look into it. I'm assuming you are from the states sorry if you are not.
I drive all highway at 100 km/h and only get anywhere from 490km - 550km a tank. Which really is pathetic.

I have the same issue too. I just bought the 2013 Elantra Limited 2 weeks ago (2/23/2013). I use that mainly to commute between Vancouver WA and Portland OR. I am only getting 26 mpgs, which I was expecting to be around 30+.
Should I call the number on Hyundai's website and complain about it, or?
I just don't know what I can do when an auto company lies their valued customers.

Calling Hyndai's customer support sucks!! they won't help you. They will create a case and give you the case #. That is all....
Since you bought recently, go back to your dealer and complain. You have some right till 30 days. Good luck to you
By the by I am in the process of getting legal advice and i probably go to court. I am collecting all sort of information/evidence about the millage. I may or may not win.. But I am really going to the court for sure... not to get 1m out of it.

OMG I think I just made a big MISTAKE. I bought a 2013 Elantra GLS two weeks ago and I am not getting aware need the posted milage. I bought this car because I wanted to save some money on fuel, well that is not going to happen. I am so madd I need to know what to do about this. If there is a class action lawsuit in Canada I want to signon. I will be talking to the dealer I bought the car from tomorrow but I don't expect they will take their car back. I can't believe the posted fuel economy Hyundai is claiming on these vehicles, it is nothing remotely close to what you actually get. This is criminal and Hyundai should be made to pay up!! Shame Shame Shame on you Hyundai!!!
