This car is a joke in the city.

I get between 23-25 with a light foot, and the same mileage when I accelerate a little harder. Yet, on the highway I get in the 40s consistently going around 65 MPH.

The thing I'v noticed that really kills it in city driving is if you have any long periods of idling. I can get it above 30 only when I drive at obscure times during which no one else is on the road.

It's somewhat disappointing because my Civic that I traded in had no problem averaging 32mpg in the same city routes.
