At first, I got around 35 MPG like most on here. I learned about hyper milers (people who get well above gas mileage by behavior or modifications.) I learned by simply accelerating slow, coasting to stops rather than braking, my mileage stays at 39-40 for city, and 36 highway. Simple laws of physics and the laws of energy and motion don't change! I love the style, ride, interior, and going 650+ miles between fill ups. I picked this car as well because it still has the $2300 federal tax rebate. It uses the Toyota 2nd gen hybrid system (same as camry) so I wasn't concerned with "new technology" When backing out of the garage in the morning, the engine starts 1/2 way and can scare you at first
Mileage, style quality construction
More options for accessories than 3 major packages. To add anything beyond basics you must spend 1000's on packages. I stuck with the 25k base model, but to get standard features on many models I would had to spend 28k. To get navigation, 31k. My garmin 550 works great with blue tooth built in.
