Iíve owned this car a little over 3 years now and Iím approaching 30K miles. It is the best car Iíve ever owned. No trips to the dealer except for scheduled maintenance. I live in Ventura and itís perfect for parking in tight spots and doing the 7-mile commute to work down the 101. Stereo is great! I average 33 MPG; Lowest MPG was 30 and highest (round trip: vacation to Bakersfield) was 39.47. Iím 6 ft. and I can ďsit behind myselfĒ. MPGs would be even better if there was a 6th ďoverdriveĒ gear. Friends are impressed and sad; too bad they stopped making these. The xD is not really a replacement. If I had to replace this car today Iíd give the Honda Fit a serious once-over.
