Hello all,

I was wondering what similar Versas are getting for RPM's on the highway at 70 mph
Year: 2011
Engine: 1.8
Trans: Automatic

My rpm's show around 2900 at 70 mph.
It seems a little high to me.

your thoughts?

I have the same year, the 2900 is about right for ATX, not CVT. Depending on trailing (TCC engaged) or leading throttle (TCC disengaged). 2800-3100. IIRC the RE4F03B.

CVT has a much lower final drive, it doesn't help the life in them. 2100 is lugging the motor, you'll get better mileage but wears out stuff faster.

My view only of course.

Thanks for the Reply

I was thinking that maybe my rpm's where high which was leading to poor MPG's.
But after your reply and some additional digging, it look like i'm right on spec for city driving 24 mpg.
I do about 75-80% city driving.

For some reason, I would think a car this small and light would have much better MPG performance.

Odd, and the 6 speed makes it odder. Usually MTX are geared longer than ATX on the highway and the more gears the longer they get.............not impossible of course but sounds like they wasted the extra 6th gear there.
