Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
I bought this vehicle new in December 2010. The main selling point was the touted 31 mpg highway since I travel 100 miles a day. After 6000 miles I'm averaging 23 mpg! I have tried 60 - 70 on the highway with cruise control on and off with the same results. The dealer told me thats the best I could probably expect from the vehicle. Well if you like heated seats in the winter with 23 mpg, then this is the car for you. If your looking for close to 30mpg, then I suggest you look elsewhere!
