I see I misread the OP- I was weeding out cars with under 35 combined ratings.

But my overall point is that a lot of these cars that I could have jumped at for gas mileage are actually dogs on the EPA test, with combined ratings in the 20s.

I arbitrarily picked 35 highway. 35 combined would narrow the field pretty drastically.

1997 honda civic ex 5 speed manual reduced price

EPA: 30 Combined, 28 Cit, 35 Highway

Quote:
Selling my white 5 speed manual 1997 honda civic ex only 177000 miles on it for only $1200. Car drives good and sounds good it shifts into all gears no pops or grinds. Only thing wrong with it is a crack in the middle of the windshield, crack on back bumper, and leaks a little oil. This a great deal for a reliable decent looking car. $1200 is the lowest I go it's already a reduced price.

1992 FORD FESTIVA W/ LESS THAN 100 K MI!!

You can't go wrong with this one! I may be a little biased about the Festivas, but mine never let me down!

EPA average is 33 mpg, for actual average check out Black Widow's page

EPA! Post the EPA!

4) list the car's EPA ratings ---> search EPA ratings here

I'd rock a Festiva for the right price if it weren't for the fact they don't exist around here anymore.

It would almost be fun bringing that faded blue paint back to life. The body looks good!

EPA fixed!

I'm sure Dirty Dave will be interested!

How have you not jumped on that Firefly? That looks like a deal if the bottom and the mounts aren't swiss cheese

Not much under that price here...a few Civics, but all autos, so nothing I would be interested in buying.
