Post up your fuel mileage that you are getting right now. Tell us if you feel that your ride lives up to the dealer's sticker or what they told you should expect to see from your ride.

Yeah these things get way better fuel mileage than you would expect for a very roomy SUV/crossover..

I'm getting just above 20 for an average (V6)

Just got back from roughly a 600 mile trip, with mostly HWY. I reset the average to just see what I would end up with, the avg was 22mpg

Which goes with the 20mpg listed as on the window sticker

Would like more, but our V6 is pretty thirsty. I wish we could have a lean burn mode engaged

Yeah we think once the engine gets a little more broke in, we think we will get a little better mpg's... With only 2500 miles it is still in its baby stage
