I want to hear about it! Please share the model, and state your MPG in the city and MPG in highway. You could also chat about why you love it.
Hubs and I will probably have to buy a car this coming year and I’d like some ideas.
I don’t think we can do a hybrid/electric because we’re not home owners yet and we live in a small town without any mechanics that know about them.

@LuluInLove: Toyota Corolla 2010 🙂
City: 26 and Highway: 35
I love our car and it is perfect for our current family and residence! My only complaint is that it struggles to go up hill and you need to push the gas pedal a little harder to get it up there but I love it regardless 🙂

I have a 2009 Yaris 4dr hatchback and I love it. I don’t know the MPGs but they are very good.
I love it because it’s so tiny tiny and cute, yet it has SO MUCH space inside. Between the hatchback and the four doors the whole thing just opens up for storage.

Thanks for the suggestions. I’m going to look into those : )

@LuluInLove: I have a 2009 Prius and I love it. My mileage has decreased now that the weather is colder. For instance, in September I drove to FI’s parents’ house in Connecticut and still had gas to spare, I ended up getting 491 miles on my tank. We made the same drive on Christmas and I think I got about 350. My average mileage overall is around 42 mpg and I live in the suburbs, so it’s combo city/highway. But when I’m not making big trips like that, I usually only fill up every two weeks or so.

FI and I have a 2012 Subaru Impreza and we love it! We live in New England, so having a car with all-wheel drive was important to us – and the great gas mileage is an added bonus. It drives really well, too.
City: 27, highway: 36

@luluvohn: That’s interesting. I never thought about how the weather would affect the fuel efficiency. I love the Prius, but I hate the blind spots in the front of the vehicle. You know what I mean? Those two big posts in the front coupled with the rain guard just makes a big blind spot.
SO has a 2011 Toyota Prius. The efficiency is amazing. It get 51 mpg city/ 48 highway. Usually vehicles get more mpg on the highway, but not Priuses.
I have a Chevy Malibu, so that’s not nearly as good on gas. I drive efficiently though, so I get about 28/30.

I have an 07 Honda Civic which I love, it gets about 38 highway and 30 in the city. At least those are the claims I read, I think it’s really about 27 for me in the city and 34 highway.
My mom has a 2011 Prius that I LOVE more than my car. It gets amazing gas mileage, like 50 mpg on the highway and great in town too. You don’t need to be a homeowner for that car (it’s not an electric car) but I don’t know about repairs.
My dad has a 2012 or 2013 Toyota Camry hybrid but I actually like driving the Prius more, even though the Camry does a little better in the snow (it’s heavier I’m guessing). I think the gas mileage on it is 43/39. You also don’t need to be a homeowner for those, as there is nothing to charge up (like a true electric car)
Once I’m done with my car, I definitely am getting a hybrid of some sort.

I have a ’12 Altima, and I love it. According to the car computer, I get about 31 MPG, with mostly highway driving. That seems to be pretty good for a mid-size sedan, and I think the newer redesign gets even better mileage. I love the car itself; it’s comfortable to drive, gets nice pickup when I need it (no issues merging or on hills), does ok in moderate snow, and it’s fairly cheap to maintain.

Mee!!!! I have a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid! I get 47 MPG but average at about 37-38 which is fine by me.
A full 12 gallon tank gives me 508 miles.

I have a 2013 Chevrolet Spark. I LOVE it. Between the lime green color and how cute and tiny the car is I would never trade it for something else, even my FI who is significantly taller then me loves it which says a lot because it is a SMALL car. I don’t recommend if you plan on having a family soon or are going to be hauling a lot of big items. I get around 35mpg between city and highway but I get probably 350-380 miles to a tank and it costs me less than $30

2010 Prius and I LOVE IT! Future hubby has 2009 Prius and we both fill up every 3-4 weeks at $25-30 a tank! We both do a mix of highway and city driving and still find it to be very beneficial. We typically take a trip from OH to SC and no matter what car we drive, we fill up 4 times. It used to cost us about $300 for a trip, now it is only $100. I also get discounted parking at my work due to driving a hybrid.

I used to have a Honda Accord and was getting barely 30 MPG while paying $60 for gas every three or four days.
I recently switched it out and now have a 2012 Prius C that I absolutely love! I usually get around 50 MPG but that’s because I drive on the highway a lot and am not really worried about trying to be super efficient. When stuck in traffic or driving in the city I can get anywhere from 55-65 MPG. My current commute is 45 miles one way so I usually fill up once every week and a half for like $27.
It was definitely one of the best decisions I ever made!

I have a civic and it’s proved to be very reliable. It gets around 30mpg in the city and a little more on highway.
