Fun car but fuel eco. not what expected

2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
This was my wife's first new car. We bought it because of the look, the navigation system, but mostly because of the "expected" great fuel economy. I don't have much to say about the design besides that there should be an arm rest and it is crazy that the nav system doesn't allow you to use some of the options when the car is moving. The only real disappointment is the gas mileage. I read many reviews that stated 30+ and much more on trips. We have never seen anything better than 26-27/gallon city or highway or some combination. I know it's not way off, but I was planning to see better than what we are getting.
Navigation system, rims, pick up
Stop treating owners like irresponsible babies by not letting us use parts of the nav system while the car is moving.
