Thread: a year later, still averaging 20 MPG on 2018 GT AWD Mazda CX-5. Is that normal?

    Yes, it is the fastest RAV4. And with that gas mileage, it won't take that long to recoup the extra cost over a non-hybrid RAV4.

    Pretty sure those batteries decrease the amount of recharge over time....kind of like laptop batteries. You can usually buy new batteries to have them professionally installed though.

    I'll bet that if you could water-cool lithium batteries in laptops, they'd last longer than they do. My wife's 4600 lb 2006 Lexus RX400h still averages 25-27 MPG after almost 14 years and 122,000 miles. (We bought it in 2005.)
