Purshased this car new in 2005. I can not say enough good things about it and I have had 57 cars...by actual count. I don't know what the guy is doing that got only 14 mpg, but I think he needs a new calculator. I have never gotten less than 26 mpg and even got 40.1 mpg on one freeway trip with one aboard. I know it looks nerdy but it is more fun to drive than any car I have ever had(the list includes sport cars, Mercedes, Volvos, etc.). We have 90K on the box and expect to go to 200K then give it to a grandchild.
Fun to drive, great gas mileage, looks unique even when four years old. Handles like an MGB...believe it or not.
