Statistics first: MPG: city/hwy/combined - 34/53/39. Read it and weep. It's on par with hybrids and diesels. It's all about driving techniques. A salesman told me: " Let the automatic do it's thing in Eco-mode." It took two months to understand the car's formula and six months perfecting it. Definitely make sure the tires are properly inflated at 32 PSI minimum. If you inflate to 36 PSI you'll have a huge jump in efficiency without any real trade offs in handling and smoothness. This car is almost worth more than what it retails at. The ergonomics are easy to use, it's easy to drive, Bluetooth is easy to use, the room is good and overall quality is good. The traction control is very good. A lot of consumers who bought this car have voiced the need for power. Have you drove it right until the cams kick in? It's very fast. The best way to find out - turn off Eco-mode and put it in Shiftonic and wind it out. You'll be doing 80 MPH and feel like you're going 50 or less. This car is quiet for it's class. Just put it back in Eco-mode when you don't need the extra power and let the transmission drive itself. It also has a Eco-mode defeat feature that kicks in while in Drive mode if you just mash the peddle. The competition has nothing on this car. It's a solid winner.
