Well, then, maybe I don't have to kill you to get the car then, eh? :P

Yea, that is bullshit that it doesn't get the advertised mileage. Did you research other sites to check on that advertised mileage, though? And I guess that'* a lesson, also, to not get the first year of any car, especially if it has major changes I do hope it works out for ya, though.

Oh yea, and the Bonne has a V6, not a straight six. Just thought you'd like to know

I guess in the end the economy isn't as much of the problem as the fact that I spent time making the decision and thought I had the economy issue figured out. It was the main reason we did what we did after all. That if you haven't noticed, steams my tail and why I try to end my rants by "I did this to myself". The research I did didn't do any good as it was either to new of a car or I just flat out missed it. Where'd the V6 comment come from. I know the configuration having owned it. I reread that and it sounds ugly but I don't know what better words to use. Ugly isn't the intention.

I agree, mine was getting 16 forever and now it is the low 20 range, although I don't keep my foot out of it!! It is too fun to drive, to worry about gas mileage and glitches. If you can afford 35K for a car, you should be able to afford the gas for it!!!
