I've been driving a lot for about two and a half years. I love it. Never had a single problem with it. Never! After you get rid off your junks and buy smth. descent - you appreciate it much more. So, on a highway it gets 40mpg if I set it on cruise controlit at 72mph. In the city it gets about 32 mph. DX starts off much faster and stronger, but the EX is better on highways. When I drive more than 200 miles I start getting tired in the seat, but up to an hour driving - it's excellent. I would recommend it to anybody who wants reliability and a gas sipper. (Used to put gas into Crown Vic...). I wish I had more power, but again, you won't get the mileage you count on. It's a good car.
MPG, reliability, behavior on highway, the way it takes turns.
...may be design. I like the design of Scion tC, and the power, but then you are giving up the economy part. Oh, better seats, please.
