Why isn't my Murano getting the minimum stated MPG as advertised?

Asked by Feb 10, 2016 at 11:35 AM about the 2015 Nissan Murano Platinum AWD

Question type: General

I just purchased a 2015 Nissan Murano and the sticker promotes a minimum of 21mpg's. The average combined with highway is advertised at 24. I expect at least the minimum and have not been able to get over 17.3. I am not an aggressive driver and not heavy on accelerating. I drive mostly city and currently have about 600 miles on it. I could have chosen between several different crossovers or Suv models but the gas mileage was my final push. Please help me understand why and if this is really what I can expect. I'm very disappointed with this but feel mislead.Even though it is an AWD the sticker still says 21-28?

Only 600 miles? The more you drive it the better the fuel mileage will get. Once you get over 1K miles, it should go up a few MPG. Sounds like you do a lot of stop and go driving and maybe not even warming the car up which isn't good for MPG.

Ok thank you Tom, I will continue driving and be patient. I appreciate your response greatly! On a side note how long do you drive before a car is "warmed up"? I drive about 45 minutes to work in the morning and then the same in the evening. Sarah

Till the thermostat opens, so around 5 minutes and or 5 miles.

City driving will drag your average mileage WAY down. Idling kills mileage too. You really only need to warm up the car for a minute or less and then drive it easy until it is fully warm.

On my current new car the mileage went up noticeably after 3,000 miles.

Thank you.. I feel a lot better about the situation but may return in about 400 miles :--)

If you take a highway drive you will see the average mileage go way up.
