I also drive like a grandpa, very easy on it. And I have about 350 miles on it. I took it in for a high idling problem. They did something with the computer. Is this normal? I don't think it is. Any input would be appreciated.
WELCOME! To the club! I have posted on several different forums about this same exact problem. It makes me shake in adrenaline from anger, because the dealer's refuse to give me a valid conclusion.
I have a 2012 Compass Altitude, 2.0L CVT2. It just hit 33K miles, so it's relatively still 'new'. I have been getting around 13MPG (yes you read that right), and can't pass the 170 mile to the tank, mark.
The damn thing is rated for 22 city, ~30 highway. I can drive 20 miles and waste 1/4 a tank. The crazy part, is I can do 100 miles in the first 1/2 tank, and then only do 40 miles in the second half.
Drove to Vegas with the car, which was a big mistake because I wasted 4 tanks of gas.
No matter how conservative I drive (no more than 65MPH, and under 3K rpm at all time), or how rough I drive (flooring all the time), I get the same miles to the tank. I talked to my dealer several times when it went in for the 30K mile service, and they said it was normal. NORMAL? I don't think it's normal for a car to get more than 10mpg under what it is advertised. I know the advertised MPG has already been ruled out as slightly incorrect, but still. They suggested a fuel additive, which I tried and I got worse mpg.
I don't even know what to do. My next bet is to see if they will replace the gas tank, and the gas pump, when it goes into the dealer next week for some rattles.
I also fill up every 3 days, and I never leave the city, which is only like a 30 mile radius.
If you have any other information on your end regarding any possible answers, please post back in this thread.
