Well I couldn't be happier. I'm impressed with the mpg on the first tank because I did about 30% was city miles and still got over 50 mpg! I started a new job in Cincinnati which is a LOT hillier the Indianapolis is, so there was also the terrain change. I can see this car getting in the high 50's with a tank were flat terrain, 90/10 split hwy/city, and speeds holding around 65 mph.

Not to speak of how much car you get and what is considered standard on a SE. You really feel like your driving a German engineered car. I was a little worried about the seats with the threads about them being hard and uncomfortable. I think the seats are fine and the firmness is was I have expected from a German engineering.
