26. 25mpg city/34mpg hwy in my 4-cyl, 4-door sedan (with a big trunk)
Edited on Sun Aug-28-05 03:21 PM by Roland99
I can seat 5 adults and plenty of luggage just fine!

Who needs an SUV? Well, if I towed a boat a lot I might but I'd probably buy a used truck since it wouldn't be a daily driver.

The new Mazda-5 wagon-esque car seats *6*.
