Manual + Diesel = Fun & 40mpg

ReviewWant to drive 300mi on HALF a tank of fuel. Just go order one -- it's worth the wait. Expensive? At 15000mi/yr the difference between 20mpg and 40mpg is $1500/yr ($125/mo). Oh, did I mention the German fit & finish and amazing handling? Worried about driving a diesel? If you drive a stick, don't be. You'll quickly learn to use and love having the maximum torque at 1900rpm instead of 5000 (like a Honda). We test drove an automatic, and it felt sluggish. But isn't $125/mo enough to learn to drive a stick?
Worst FeaturesMake it easier to get the rear headrests out.
