It gets great mileage as well, it just depends on how you drive it. We had been getting 18 mpg just driving it around town, but then drove it to the east coast last week and depending on what I kept the speeds at, I got anywhere from 20-27 mpg over 1700 miles of highway time. Fuel economy starts to drop over 75 mph, but when you're stuck at 65 mph through Ohio wanting to stab your eyes out, mpg are great. I'll take low 20s at 85-90 mph across Kansas though, decent trade off for making good time.
