Is that all you have to consistently gripe about today?

Most brands of vehicles have quality and good mpg (thanks to GOV requirements) in different sizes. Today it is whatever makes your boat float if you do the research into the vehicles before buying.

Since we've revived this topic:

Let's first correct your opinion. SOME Hondas get good gas mileage, but so do many other vehicles. You need to do your homework before you purchase or lease a new vehicle. There are some pickups and SUVs that get better mileage than some smaller cars.

Now, let's correct your grammar:

"I heard Hondas get the best fuel economy." (lowercase H in heard, no apostrophe in Hondas - it's plural, not possessive).

Sorry - English teacher.

I heard ......this topic is almost 2.5 years old
the OP most likely has moved on and no longer cares what any of you think anymore.

please let old topics die ......please !

With across the board comparisons, Honda is at a great advantage because they don't produce a "true" pickup or body on frame sport utility vehicle. Almost every other major manufacturer selling vehicles in the US that they directly compare to does.

I heard cars rolling down hills get better fuel economy than those going up.

Not so, Toyota will beat them, depending on the vehicle though.

Times are changing, hybrid cars are changing the rules. In my opinion, you cant beat a diesel. But that is yesterdays rules. Someone said "it's hard to beat a Prius". Well maybe, but those batteries are going to fail. And this is going to cost $2500 to replace, plus $1000 in labor. The question is how long will they last? I get (and by the way I always use my lowest numbers), 44mpg. So that $3500 will take me almost 40,000 miles in fuel costs at today's prices. And even my diesel has it's costs. I have to change a timing belt every 60,000 miles. This costs me approx $125, but I can do the work myself. Can't do the work? Probably going to cost you $1000. Fuel economy isn't cut and dried. What is it going to cost you to get it!

That's a broad statement as if one size fits all. For a full sized family car, probably not. For a 4-seater with not-so much room cabin size, possibly, but you'd have to be comparing comfort, extras, etc with a number of other contenders like Mazda, Toyota, Suzuki, etc. I'm not sure that Honda really gets the best as far as a car that would fit my family.

Are you talking across the board, or one specific model?

You might try asking a Fit owner,meaning one which will tell the truth. Hint; Pick an owner of a White Fit car ask away.....Try two > One with at least 20,000 miles V/S one with 5,000 miles...... blank.....

If you go by the ranking of corporate average fuel economy GASOLINE fueled passenger cars what you heard is basically correct.

That's not necessarily true. Conduct research. Consult Consumer Reports, web auto sites such as MSN Autos, Yahoo, JD Power. There are numerous other sites.

When I was looking at purchasing a new vehicle; if I saw people in parking lots, at gas stations - I would ask them about their vehicle and how they liked it.
