Me and the wife do 60/40 city/highway in the 2010 and I have been getting a consistant 26MPG. I am a little bummed because at that rate I was hoping for closer to 28 but I don't think the transmission in the 2010s do a good job of gear selection, I feel it hunt a bit if I take a hill. I know on flat highways I can get 36MPG cruising at 65.
Will have more tomorrow but I got 34 mpg on my last fill-up. The mileage has been going up as it is getting broken in now with 4,400 miles. The overall mileage is now over 25.2 mpg. 900 mile trip and it did wonderfully. Going up and down the Ozarks hills on the way to Branson and handling was splendid. No problems.
Not to put a damper on this discussion but I just saw the new Focus. It looked very good and with the 2.0 the highway mileage was 38 mpg and city mileage was 28 mpg. This car is going to be a very big draw. With the rising price of gasoline it will be a very big deal for all cars to have good mpg figures or they just won't sell. There is an old saying that Americans will pay anything for economy. It is still true, even back in the days when gas was 28 cents a gallon.
Drove the new Focus today. The Kia Forte is a superior vehicle.
