    Lib gets the same mileage with her 4.7 as she did with her 4.0 about 16.6. She runs a lot of stop and go and a ridge. Josh yours had all that nonsense fixed. GM fullsize suvs are still nicer, and more dependable.

    What kind of mileage is she getting? I was reading about Hyundai's false mpg claims and how they were compensating buyers for the false info or misprint. According to the specs, I should be getting around 38 mpg with ECO activated. We'll see.

    We did drive it a bit last night and the gas gauge did not drop a single bar the entire time. It's fu$$ing amazing. That usually does a 1/4 of a tank on my TJ. I'm gonna miss the gas pump. We had formed a bond over the years.

    I'm still going to drive the TJ and let the lady have the car. I don't want to be spoiled by the smooth ride and all the gadgets.

    So it's been a while with this car...or should I call it a pos silver thing on wheels?

    This car sucks. I refuse to drive it anymore. What in the world is up with the suspension on this thing? This is a car and it's supposed to ride like a car, smooth and easy but instead this pos thuds on every bump and you feel it through your spine. It shudders on every black strip on the turnpike which is extremely annoying. No chance of catching a nap in this thing. My TJ rides better for pete's sake. Any speed above 70 causes a shaking in the front end even after having it aligned and tires rotated/balanced. The front windshield is downright retarded. No setting in hvac control panel can clear the damn window. It's either smeared or fogged up and water keeps forming on the outside just above the vents regardless of what setting i put it on so I'm the only dumbass on the road with wipers going and it's not even raining. The seats....oh man do I have a flat ass from these hard seats. I can barely stand the 20 min drive to work. The HVAC is equivalent to placing a plastic bag over your head. It seems like the car is so air tight and it recycles the same air over and over that it makes breathing a chore. If I crack open the window just a hair when it's raining then bam, the whole inside of the door is wet.

    Oh yeah it costs $400 for a 60k mile service and nothing is wrong with it. I can do the same services on my jeep for $70. (sigh)

    Only decent thing about the car is that I was getting 35 mpg at 60 mph (when I did drive it) while the lady gets 29-30 at 70 mph.

    No more new cars for me.

    Hyundai sells a decent car for the $ now a days anyway. However PARTS for it will funk you big time. My Daughters needs an alternator and a power steering hose. That's about $300 - $350 for two simple parts. So the 10 year 100k warranty is great but dump it for another when it goes out of warranty lol. This car only has 98K I'll have to sink around $1000 into it to be dependable again.

    It will be gone before the warranty is up.
