After 40,000 miles...

ReviewAfter 40,000 miles, my Hybrid is still
a solid, comfortable ride. Not a
performance vehicle, but a good
commuter car. I have been somewhat
disappointed in mileage compared to the
ads/EPA. On my 80 mile round-trip flat
highway commute (70-80mph) the car
averages 38mpg. Slowing down really
makes a difference, at 55 mph, it gets
closer to 52mpg. I'm still having fun
learning to tweak the mileage, and I am
slowing down. So far, great
reliability, no mechanical problems at
Best FeaturesI like the dash, all the information, easily accessible, very readable periwinkle blue. I like not stopping for gas as often, especially with it over $2. Amazing interior room for such a small car.
Worst FeaturesOccasional interior dash rattle (as reported by other owners), dealer can't fix it. No trunk opener on remote. Armrest is too low, adjustable would be nice. CD storage fits them in sideways, so you can't see what's there. Pretty petty complaints, really.
