    Angry Hello from North Carolina

    Just bought a 2017 mirage gt. Love how it looks but having some issues on the technical end.

    Had a check engine light at 200 miles. Took back to dealer and found a leak in the fuel pump. Had fuel pump replaced. Now the MPG gauge is showing low 30"s. Cant tell yet if computer is wrong or really getting low MPG. Also driver side headlight is 2' lower than passenger light at 25'. No adjustment points on light.

    It's possible to get low 30's for mpg but normally that means driving like you stole it. The headlight beam is adjustBle. I would have schedule another trip to the dealer to adjust the headlight and run some diagnostics.

    The light is fixable, if not they should have replace the entire light. The MPG, do you have AC on all the time? Run it a tank and let it average out. I live in Florida and I always have AC on 100% and I drive it like I stole it and the gauge show about 32mpg..

    No ac yet. Eco light is on entire drive besides taking off. I only have 600-700 miles on it so I'm still babying it

    Eco light is on whole drive besides a short time taking off. All highway miles at about 70 mph.

    Welcome! These engines like to break in a little before they start delivering really good mileage. Give it around 1500 miles. You will notice the engine get a bit peppier as well. No need to baby it...just drive normally.

    The GT is the heaviest version of the hatch, so it probably won't do quite as well on the mpg side as a base ES manual will. I'd guess you will eventually see high 30s or low 40s. Weather is also a consideration. I do low 40s in the winter and low 50s in the summer.
