2008 4dr SUV 197-horsepower 3.8L V6

For the type of vehicle, the fuel economy is good.
2007 4dr SUV 253-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
With moderate driving, I have easily averaged 20+ mpg with mixed city/highway driving and 25+ mpg on long highway-only trips.
2006 4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Getting over 20 mpg regularly.

To be expected but with the rising fuel prices anyone would like to see a little better gas milage
2007 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.8L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
barely a difference between highway and city mileage I average about 19.2 in city and 21.5 on freeway
2006 4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6

I wish it was much better.
2006 4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
On average I get great mileage in the city 17.5 to 19 mpg. But on the highway I only get 22 unless I stay below 65 then I get 27

I belive we could engineer better fuel economy, or put in a Diesel. Also, Four gears are lacking in a heavy, AWD Vehicle.
2006 4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I wish it were around 25 mpg avarage instead of 20.
2004 4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6

19 city, 24 highway

Very heavy car. Gas mileage is fair.
2004 4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6

With todays fuel prices, the Pacifca is not for you if you city drive. I get around 14 to 16 in the city and on the highway I get around 19 to 21. Not the best out there on the road, but again weight and underpowered is the main cause.

EPA ratings of 17/24, but I've averaged barely 18 overall in my first 1200 miles...hoping for a slight improvement after break-in. UPDATE- as of 02/11/2013, I am averaging 20-21mpg overall with 4200 miles on the clock. On a recent 380-mile interstate trip, I managed 22.8mpg with the cruise set at 80mph.

in city gives about 13-14 mpg. Highway is still good. I can get 21-23 mpg on highways

A bit lower than the competitions

too low

The AWD feature does use more gas than a FWD vehicle. Averages about 17-18 city and about 20 highway.

The fuel economy was lower than for the Murano. The plus is that it uses regular.
2007 4dr SUV 263-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Could be better. I have seen 24mpg as a high on the highway....but usually closer to 21-22. Around town is 17-18.
