We've had a lot of disappointed owners when it comes to fuel economy on the MC. :mellow: It's a cheap car to buy but the usual school of thought is that a low price of admission and high fuel economy go hand-in-hand. You could do far worse for mileage than one of these cars, but you could also do better.I really think my Accent MC hatch is a blast to drive. I really do, but its not going to cut it as a $5.00 a gallon gas car for me at least. Its a $4.00 a gallon car TOPS.
