I had the car for 6 month and 8K miles. The gas mileage is about 3 mpg worse than my old Tercel. Best was 42 mpg on the highway, worst was 34 mpg in heavy city traffic. I average 37-38 on my commute which is mostly city driving. The car is comfortable and easy to handle, tight turning radius, lots of space once you fold down the rear seats. So far I had zero problems with the car. Easy to work on for do-it-yourselfers.
Good but not great gas mileage, handling, comfortable seats, good visibility, reliable.
Sub par stereo, long shifts on manual. Should get better gas mileage than a 1996 Tercel, which it doesn't. How about a turbo diesel version?
