Successful Failure

Mixed feelings about my new car. Just got a 2001 PT Cruiser for $750. The price is sure nice, I'll easily make a few dollars on this car. But, after looking up the stats on the car, I'm feeling dissapointed. .39 coefficient of drag, 17 city, 22 highway, 20 combined EPA rating. Really? WTF! Must be honest, I really didn't think that a PT Cruiser with it's 2.4 DOHC 4 cylinder engine would do THAT bad. That's worse than the car it replaced, a 3L V6 '99 Olds Alero. Got an observed 30 mpg highway in that one. Well, the car was cheap enough so when it comes time to sell, should make a few bucks. Of all the cars my wife mentioned that she would like to have I figured this one would be the best choice. Wow, should of got a (puke) minivan! Oh well, I'll see what kind of numbers I can get with it. But really? Less than 30 mpg in such a small car (officially via Chrysler it's a truck) is horrid!
