    I went out in the garage to agonize over the ding to the hood clear bra from a large piece of fir bark that fell from a passing log truck.

    Off topic, but:

    1) Part of the issue is winter fuel related...my average highway mileage has declined ~4 mpg since October.
    2) Recall that the EPA highway estimates are based on an average speed of 48.3 mph with a max speed of 55.

    Take your off topic and.....

    None of my other vehicles have missed by in excess of 20% regardless of fuel formulation or seasonal variation

    Carl, The EPA didn't manufacture or sell me the car, Hyundai did. Honda was close with my last civic and VW was right on with my Jetta....why is Hyundai off?

    I drove to work and rand some errands. I don't know how my gas mileage will be yet, still on the first tank, but with my Kia my mpg always dropped 3-5mpg in the winter.

    Tint windows. 50 % all around

    I will give the R-Spec Turbo a very long look seeing that my lease is up in about 6 months.
    Sometime you take a chance on something and it rewards you with things you never thought of.

    Cleaned off it's first bird poo and wondered why of the 4 vehicles in my drive it was the one they aimed for.
    It's 48hrs since I got it so not much else yet.
