Have had a lot of fun with this car. Driving is fun and playful. I have figured that traveling East to West I gain 10% on mileage because of the winds generally from the West. I have gotten up to 52 mpg on the NYS Thruway eastbound and 48 westbound. Drops to 46 mpg going through the Berkshires. Lots of pep and pickup. Surprised my wife on its passing capability.
I like the instant recalculation of the mpg meter and being able to calculate for short trips and long trips. When the radio fades, the CD is always there for a backup.
I have purchased a GPS for travels and that has augmented the fun a lot. This would be an improvement if they could come up with one that is comparable in price. Can't see paying more than $400 for one, installed or not. Radio reception could be improved with the new technology.
