The car reivew in today's paper was about a new Suzuki 4dr hatchback. All else aside, what struck me was these little econobox is only able to achieve an EPA rating of 30MPG with a manual trans!! 30MPG is nothing to get to excited about nowadays. My old 4-banger Saturn achieves 33MPG with the A/C on and 35-38MPG without. Why buy an "economy" car when the MPG is nothing special? Even GM's 4 cyl Ecotech engine gets better MPG across the board!
