Expected better gas mileage

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Reviews on this vehicle seem very inconsistent. Based on my research, people seem to be experiencing problems with transmission fluid turning brown very early on (as mine has), but I haven't come across a lot of actual transmission failures. My biggest problem has been fuel economy. For such a tiny car, I expected better than the 25ish total and much less for city driving. Since there aren't any other real advantages over a slightly larger car (besides cost), I have been disappointed by that. For a car of its size, the trunk is great and there is reasonable room in the front seats. The back is tight but that is to be expected. The egg-shape continues to look dated to me.
Reliable so far (42000). Good Trunk.
Shouldn't be considered a fuel-economy leader in its class.
