Guess when they tested these cars, fuel mileage wasn't even considered. The NEW mpg rating for these cars are 20 mpg averaged & 23 highway for the automatic. Why fix anything if they're selling faster than they can be made(initially)?

If there is any silver lining in this, it's that I'm still under low re-sell value $ wise. At @ $1600 now, but it still needs things like the back passenger side tire, alignment, rear shocks. So another $150. Getting sick of putting money in it. With just 116k miles on the od, it's falling apart. The PO (Previous Owner) can't be completely at fault.

Put in a color changing radio for $100. If my wife likes it, so will the next person looking at it. Should increase the resale value too, lol ; ) Sell 'em on the radio, forget the car.....look at the radio! Want to double my $ on it. Get something better.
