He was joking
I was not. I already retained a lawyer. Filed a civil suit. Your move Kia....
What, they don't have Dick's in Chicago? I find that hard to believe.
Remember that our fuel consumption indicators are asserted to be one to two mpg on the generous side. So if I see 19 MPG (like today) it means I am getting closer to 17 MPG, city, which is according to this updated set of consumption figures. I'm okay with it. The Stinger
3.3TT is not my choice for economy reasons.
When buying this car on day one, I know it was not for saving gas therefore, I have no complain of gas usage. If gas was my issue I would have call Dick's law firm hahahaha
Yeah, IMO, one doesn't buy a car like this looking for good MPG. If you can afford this car, you can afford the gas, maintenance, tires, etc. I am glad I am finally in a place in my life where money isn't something I need to stress/worry about anymore. No more living paycheck to paycheck.
My lowly little 2.0 Premium is doing great so far. I'm only on the 2nd tank, and I'm doing about 2.5mpg* per the readout. That's a little better than my Optima 2.0T did. And that's about 80% in-town and maybe 20% freeway, and on Regular 87 octane gas.
I know some of you think the computer readout is way off (I don't), but even so, that's good mileage.
* EDIT - should have been 23.5mpg.
Man if 2.5 mpg is good you must be used to fueling up with JP8 in a 20-ton tank.
In regards to MPG, I think our onboard trip computer system that calculates MPG may be off. Since the day I purchased my GT back in May 2018, I have logged every fill-up into an app and each time, the average MPG under 'Accumulated Info' on our dashboard is about 2 MPG higher than what I manually calculated. I usually drive in ECO mode. For example, this morning I filled up and I calculated my MPG to be 20.98 for the past 250 miles driven, the average MPG under 'Accumulated Info' shows 22.7. I would say every time, the trip computer shows an estimate that is 2 MPG higher than actual.
mine has always been spot on.
Haha. Shows that haste makes waste.
Should have read "23.5mpg". Was rushing out to lunch when I typed that ... and did't proofread before publishing.
I'm starting to log manually via iPhone app, cause I always suspected the car CPU to over-calculate actual MPG. So let's see if I get similar results as you.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a more prevalent issue than it appears. Thanks, it would be great to see how your results turn out.
Let me do the math...
I have 4,000 miles on my car.
4000/21MPG = 190.48 Gallons
4000/20MPG = 200.00 Gallons
190.48 - 200 = 9.52 Gallon difference.
$3/Ga = $28.56 owed to me, by KMA (Kia Motors America) for the incorrect mileage.
$28.56 X 17,000 Kia Stingers = $485,520 in checks cut for a 1MPG error...
Escalated quickly huh? Somebody is in the hot seat today.
(I don't own 17,000 Stingers, but you get the point lol)
I suggest we all call my lawyer.
Is he a Dick? That's the only kind for this sort of thing.
OH he is.
"He hounds em and pounds em" - Dick
You get more than that since all 17000 stingers are not 3.3 GT versions. The 2.0 folks get zilch. Lol
If this isn't just a Kia Motors "America" issue there's also the tens of thousands of other Stingers in Asia, Europe, and Australia to consider.
