I have just purchased my second VX, a 1994. My first was a 1992 and I drove it until I needed a truck and traded it in at 168,000 miles. Bought this '94 after a long search for a later year model with the 2 airbags. My '92 got a consistent 47 per gallon highway with the A/C on, 50 with A/C off. The '94's mileage is about the same.

marvel of automotive precision and

Civic proved to be a winner for fuel
efficiency. Boasting 45-48 MPG, these
engines were turning out specs the new
gas/electric Insights and VW TDI
technology are only now surpassing. If
zippy performance is a key to car
enjoyment, forget the VX. It's
mainstrength comes at the pump when
years after year of ownership will be
favored by stingy fuel bills. In an
era of gas-guzzling SUV's, look for the
VX model for a find that will reward
you with reliability and incredible
