Listen, I am a GM backer, but I have owned 3 CRXs (never again, though; love a rex but two of them tried to kill me). First, ignore EPA #s and see what people are really getting from their cars. GM builds to the EPA test; Honda builds cars for driving. Honda doesn't make cars like those any more because customers have demanded more solid feeling, safer, quieter cars. A CRX isn't safe on the road with the heavier cars that resulted. If you want a fuel economy vehicle maybe Honda isn't as dominant as it used to be, but if eco stands for economical, count insurance, repair, resale, etc. and Hondas are plenty pocket-eco friendly. Check's True Cost of Ownership calculations. It's a handy tool.
