Hello!

Just joined the forums and this is my first post!

I just bought a 2014 Sorento V6 with all the Bells and whistles. The first days of driving the car, the mileage just shocked me to the point that i was ready to sell it. As previously said, it did get better with time and usage but still is considerably higher than my 2002 silverado truck with a 5.3L. My driving is 80% city and 20% highways.

Secondly, the AC is just OK. How many of you see this cooling perfectly in 100+ degrees weather? Also, it barely keeps up at idle!

I am seriously thinking of getting rid of the oem single radiator fan and getting some super duty SPAL fans with the complete harness, the dealer actually accepted to install it for me without having to void my warranty!

What are your thoughts?

Thanks!

What kind of mileage are you getting, you never said.

I live in south Louisiana. With 100 degree temps and high humidity the SXL airconditioner set to recirc will freeze you out. My wife is driving 80% in city rush hour heavy slow interstate traffic and is averaging @ 21-24 mpg with the V6.
