After the first 10K miles, the AVERAGE MPG has risen from the low 20's to the high 20's on my average commute, but is nowhere near the advertised efficiencies. NOT a happy camper with this!
With no spare, I'm not sure what will happen when I have a flat halfway between Barstow and Blythe.
The 6-speed transmission give plenty of pep, even with the tiny engine, and merging into fast traffic has not been a problem...however, with ANY level of accelleration the MPG drops like a rock.
Only real gripe is there is not enough real time information of fuel efficiency...it gives an average only for MPG, and no indication that the engine/tranny has gone into a suck-fuel mode. Some problems with wireless connection to cell phone..
