Old elantra but new member

Me: Hi my name is Matt and I'm an élantra owner.

Everyone: Hi Matt.

So starts the meeting?

Sorry just goofing off. I do own a 2011 limited and was not really loving it until lately. I was getting way lower mpg than advertised. Strange thing is after the dealer had the car for the mpg refund service call where they pay us peanuts to compensate for mpg, the car has been getting much better milage. I was only averaging 31 with combo city and highway now I get 34. If I drive mainly to work for a tank I easily get 37. No complaints with that.

We have 33000 miles now so some of the difference may be breaking but honest to god it changed right after the service. I'm thinking new computer load.


I'm going to hold onto it but want to change out the wheels from the 17 low profile to 16 or 15 and get taller tires for better ride. Anyone want to trade wheels?

Ok Glad I found this forum and look forward to getting and giving information.

Matt

We had a 2012 GLS and we got about 35+ average. I was getting 40-42 HW with the AC on. Max I've gotten was 47 mpg.
