Low cost transportation

2009 Pontiac G3 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car with the cash for clunkers program, so the price was $7600 and my now crushed Cherokee. The only option I bought was the AC. The first tank of gas I got 32 combined MPG, mostly highway. I am a conservative driver. All I wanted was good cheap transportation, and I am VERY happy with this purchase. If you want a Cadillac, buy a Cadillac. This car rides and handle fine, good headroom, and is kind of cute. The engine RPM seems high on the highway, but it rides good and is not very noisy. If it is reliable for years, I would buy another.
Low Price, comfortable
5th gear could be higher to slow down the engine on the hiway. Maybe the larger tire option would help this.
