MSN AUTOS VIDEO
MSN is such a joke with these articles. Seems like their advertisers get the best ratings all the time.
The Toyota Rav4 gets better mileage than most these listed. Honda and Toyota usually match or beat the estimates on the window sticker, unlike Ford,Hyundai and Kia which all "mad mistakes calculating " fuel mileage
i am dissappointed with the mileage on my Equinox. while i never drive 55, a solid 65 - 70 mph nets me less than 28-29 mpg's. i have never seen 30 mpg's, much less 32. my last car, 09 G8 GXP was a gas guzzler (added to the window sticker) . it was rated at 20 highway. but i regularly got 24
+ mpg's at 70-75 mph. does chevy or EPA rate economy cars differently than fast cars? oh, and don't bother putting E85 in. dropped my mpg's by about 5. cheaper to buy, but lose it on mileage.
still, i love my little hauler. will get 4wd and v6 next time.
I had a 2006 Outback XT Limited that was a death-trap.
Had to unload it at a loss.
It would rock VIOLENTLY side to side on only very slightly uneven asphalt.
The suspension was tall , mushy , and had almost no rebound control.
