Reviving an old thread here - thought I'd mention the eye-popping mileage I get on my trips to Dallas from home (1,500 miles RT). I zero out the fuel used-o-meter and the trip meter, save my receipts and double check the math. I've made 12 of these trips in this car.
Bonnie gets between 34 and 35 mpg
Oil changed every 3,000 without compromise, and basic maintenance. Aside from the fuel sensor recall and a major 40,000 mile maintenance done at the dealership (I know the guys who sell 'em and fix 'em there), she has not needed that much attention.
Treat her right
