I just bought the GS for my wife in mid July. We regularly get 30-33 mpg with mostly city driving, and the ac on. On roadtrips, even with ac on, I normally get around 34-36 mpg, mostly highway driving 65-75 mph.Thanks for the response, silver.
As far as being an inch lower I'm not sure.
I've decided that I am going to buy an Accent in November and am debating between the GS and the Blue. It seems like a win either way.
Never heard of further undercoating. The underside comes from the factory with a protective undercoat which must be adequate to offer such a long rust warrantee--even more so when you consider the KIA's longer warrantee--and I believe they have identical factory protection.lines, thanks for the info. I have another question for Hyundai owners. Does Hyundai offer rust-proofing of any sort? What does it cost and is it worth it?
We discussed this earlier in another thread: I don't think there is a Blue Trim for 2011. They have the GL, which is very similar, and the EPA rating is identical to that of GS (28/34). EPA seems to have rated a Blue trim for 2011 (26/36), but nobody saw that car sold in the US. In any case, the average mileage is about the same, the Blue is better on the highway, while the GS/GL is better in the city. The reason is probably shorter gears in the GL.I just looked at a GS on Saturday and loved it. I was wondering what the real world difference is between the GS and the Blue? I know what the EPA says, but what have you experienced? Also, can one have cruise control installed on the Blue?
Walmart floormats ftw. $20, solid rubber, deep grooves.I've made up my mind to get a GS w/ CC installed. What other options would you recommend or advise against? At $95.00, I think I'll forgo the floor mats.
