I bought my 07 SX4 Sport last March, the window sticker stated 26 City and 34 Highway. When I 1st bought the car, I was only at 17 mpg. After 2000 miles I was at 26.4 in City and 34 in the Highway. I was thrilled about this!
About 8500 miles, my gas mileage hit rock bottom. Now regardless of city or highway driving, I am only getting 22.3 mpg. WHICH SUCKS!! I even took the car to Philly which is about a good two hour drive one way with all turnpike driving and still only got 22.3 mpg.
I have not changed anything, still same gas station and same way to work, plus my other cars did not see this drop in mileage either.
The dealership informed me that it maybe caused due to cold and winter weather we have in PA. I think that is a totally crock of "poo." I have had other cars that have had milage counters and never saw a drop like this with no reason.
I am taking the car in the shop on Thursday, they are going to check the tire pressure and put it on the computer, but I have no idiot lights on.
The dealership is always on the radio "braggin" about how good the SX4 gets over 30 mpg, but I guess not mine.
REALLY REALLY UPSET and help would be appericated.
Thanks in advance,
