    There's a big difference in fuel consumption between these two. I usually get around 8l/100 mix of city/hwy, the car is still new at 11k km. I get around 550km when the light comes on to fill up. I usually shift before 4k rpms.

    2011 GX Sport Automatic. I don't do specific l/100km just from the tank. Hwy I get about 40-50kms per "dot" while city is 20-30kms per "dot". The auto usually shifts betwen 2.5-3.5k RPMs in the city. Driving in the summer, if I remember correctly, the city was 40-50kms per dot and hwy was 70-80 kms per dot.

    Very satisfied with the mileage as with city it is about a full week before fueling up the tank again.

    Im really enjoying the car. The only problem is the tight back seat cos i have a baby seat in there the but other than that its a great car in every way.
    It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it...

    First warranty claim!



    The outer gasket around the push button for the trunk cracked. Not sure how it happened but I had it replaced free of charge. I hope it wasn't due to water getting behind it and then freezing as if that is the case then it could be a problem into the future and after warranty.

    Long time coming on this one, but the car is now just at 198,000 and it has been fantastic!

    It is again featuring that cracked button around the trunk again, I'm really not sure what is causing that.

    Otherwise, we haven't had any mechanical issues at all with the car. It really has been rock solid! We've had wear and tear items like brakes, rotors done on the front and will have to do spark plugs soon, but no major issues at all *knock on wood*

    My only gripe still would be fuel economy on the car, as we are doing about 1,000km a week which equates to 2-3 trips to the gas station.

    But, otherwise this car has been amazing and I hope it makes another 200,000km!
