Best Fuel Economy to Date in My 2009 Vue XR

Last week, I went on a 450 km trip and my 2009 VUE XR-6 averaged 7.7 L/100 km. Converted, it gives 36.7 MPG imperial, or 30.6 MPG US gallons. I was driving at 101 km/h (60 MPH) on the cruise control. We were 2 adults and a child, fully loaded with luggages. For a 3.6L V6, I think it is very, very acceptable! I like this machine!

On my way back, I hauled my RV trailer... so it just averaged 23 L/100 km with a full-front wind at 30~50 km/h. Even F-150s hauling trailers were "dancing and swinging" on the road!

2009 Cars Deals are Insane

Mark Solheim from Kiplinger: Auto sales in 2008 were the worst in 16 years, and this year could be even grimmer. Dealers desperate to move inventory off clogged lots are entertaining the lowest of low-ball offers. Add in generous cash rebates and low-interest financing - at least, for the most creditworthy customers - and screaming bargains abound. Bill Cormicle of Flint, Michigan, got a sweet deal on his new Saturn Vue, a model that was piling up on dealer lots.
