I have a 2005 xrs with a little over 50k miles. After I purchased car I started to notice things that would point to the driver beating the heck out of the car. But my main concern is that a lot of other people are getting about 30mpg and with my vehicle I'm only getting about 21-24 on a good week. Should I be getting better mileage and car is just messin up on me or is it just the xrs get worse mpg?? Can someone please fill me in?

When was the last time the car had a complete tune up? How often do you hit lift?

But yes, generally, the XRS isn't as fuel efficient as the base model cars. That's the price you pay for having a high performance engine. ;)

The XRS isn't rated very good for mileage. The original window sticker is 26/34 city/highway. EPA's revised estimates are 22/31 city/highway. If you're getting low-to-mid 20s in town, that sounds like exactly what you should be getting.

Cool thanks. I honestly don't mind paying a little bit of a price for the performance. I'm happy with it, I just wanted to make sure that the xrs wasn't supposed to be getting up there and I'm down in the twenties lol. I"m gonna take it in for a tune next week. Thanks again for feedback.
