Just took delivery yesterday of CPO 2018 EX-L w 7K miles. .
They delivered to us in NJ (from NY), trip computer showed average of 12 mpg. How is that possible ? It had 3/4 tank, I just went to fill up top off and 1/2 mile drive home computer got to 20 mpg which is normal city, but range still says 216 miles. We've done about 5-6 local trips of 2-4 miles and since delivery, and used at least 1/8 tank. I know people complained about getting 18 mpg city, no obvious reason here why it should be 12 (not heavy, cool out, regular BP fuel).
To be blunt, is this a lemon ? I called dealer (unfortunately they are an hour away) and they are speaking to service and may want to bring it back to evaluate. We live in NJ bought in NY, under NY lemon law but not sure how it or if it applies to this issue. Everything else is great or usual hiccups (radio software bugs), this is the only issue that would give us buyer's remorse. We didn't sign up for 12 MPG …
Thanks for any advice, thoughts.
