Bought this loaded SES which is black/black with all options heated leather etc back in December 2008 used, with only 5000 miles on her for only $13,500.00.
She listed for around $21,000.00 new.
I did my home work as far as price, value, etc.
She now has 45K as of 5-14-11. No problems what so ever.
The only thing we have done so far as changing the oil and rotating the tires.
MPG! my wife and I average around 32-34 mpg all the time with mixed driving city and highway. The best we got was driving 55 mph which was 39 MPG.
All the extras we have are very nice to have heated leather seats, sync, moon roof, etc.
We plan on keep her for awhile with the price of gas gas always going up you need something that gets this many miles per gallon.
The ride could be a little rough at times if going over pot holes etc, but then again its a small car so you would except that, but still it would be nice to have a little more comfort on those long trips down the highway.
