CUORE- fuel consumption


I've just bought a Daihatsu Cuore 5 dr plus auto. It's a V reg with only 5000 miles on the clock. I bought it because I thought they were supposed to be very economical on fuel consumption and all write ups I've read say you get about 50 miles to the gallon- HOWEVER- I've filled up a couple of times now and it's clear that I'm only getting 30-35 miles to the gallon??? Does anyone know why this is vastly different to my expectations??? Can anyone help as I'm thinking of trading it in!!

It could be that it's still r

It could be that it's still running in at that kind of mileage. But I doubt the auto box would help economy much either.


I just helped my partner at the weekend buy a T reg Cuore with manual transmission at the weekend after reading a few reviews at the weekend. The manual transmission Cuore has a 5 speed box and can do 50+ miles to the gallon. However the Automatic version is a 3 speed box and can be quite heavy on fuel in certain situations. I can't remember any specifics about the Automatic version. But you should find info about it quick enough on Google about the automatics fuel consumption.
