Ok all, so the missus and I are not happy with the Jeep mileage (2005,
sticker says 17/22, revised epa- 15/21). She averages 17-18 and I
changed the plugs, little improvement. Just bought her the darn thing
and fuel shoots up!
She wants a little Toyota Yaris, the local dealership worked some
numbers, way out of line for me. Bear in mind, I'm 9-10k upside down.
Same payment, no money down (I hope!)
Stop by my trusty Hyundai dealer, they have (2) 2007 Santa Fe GLS, 5
speed manual, 2.7l. The sticker says 20/25 and there's a $2500 rebate,
easing my pain. Side by side compariosn shows the Santa Fe $600/year
cheaper, 3 mpg better average, and one has XM. Love my XM!
1. How's the reliability?
2. I hate timing belts, but looks easier to do than my old 2002
3. What's your average if you have one? Best highway MPG?
4. Any known issues?
5. Ride, stability, quirks, complaints, compliments?
6. Would you do it?
