I'd like to stay below 2 to 3000, but definitely below 5501, the cost of my previous car in 1993, which was 4 years old at the time. I am willing to be patient and look for a good price for lower miles, better condition and greater potential.

Do the figures reflect the average of all models for that manufacturer, or the very best performance of any model for that manufacturer? Also, are those auto and manual combined? It is surprising that only a few of them are over 40 mpg.
