Re: FYI-Don't buy a 2014 V6 for the gas mileage.

I was surprised that my mileage is not that different as the 2011, the thought was with the different gear ratio and the lower RPM I would get better mileage. It ain't happening. In NJ I was also hit with an EPA/luxury tax which the dealer failed to mention when I bought it. Kind of sucked finding that out after we did and agreed on the numbers.
