The Accord and Sonata are classified as full size cars by the EPA. I guess ignorance really is bliss.

Don't forget that the government has more stringent emissions and safety regulations than they did a decade or more ago.  A lot of that has robbed fuel mileage from vehicles.  When the government gets involved in almost anything, it's one step forward, two steps backwards.


You mean the government keeps preaching higher gas mileage, but they don't really mean it?  Who'd a thunk it!Surprised  Yeah I know, you're right.  Except it's more like one step forward, twelve steps back.  Kinda' like walking home drunk.Tongue out

Like I've been saying, gas mileage has been going down instead of up.  My 2000 Pontiac Bonneville 3800 V6 is rated at 17/30 MPG.  And I get 30-32 MPG on the highway. Comparable full sized American cars today the highway MPG is 25-29.

I think this article is flawed, these are not fuel sipping cars at all! Where are all the small cars and hybrids? All of these cars get average mpg NOT gas sipping mileage.
Go back and look at the title of the article for a clue, Forrest.  Do the words "Full-Size" mean anything to you?????

Imagine wishing you could trade your current cell phone, computer, or televsion in on the BETTER one you had thirty years ago?!? Back in the 80s and early 1990s, fuel cost just over a buck, and there were many cars that were very inexpensive to buy and got over 50 mpg. Chevrolet dealers offered the Metro Xfi (a Geo)  that got 58 mpg highway, and before that the Sprint that got nearly as much, and cost even less.  Honda offered the CRX hf that got 56 mpg for under $10K.  Today, instead of costing $1.15 per gallon, fuel costs $3.60, and now manufacturers act like they pulled off a miracle when the build a car that gets barely 40 mpg?  So with fuel being three and a half time MORE expensive  cars get 40% WORSE fuel mileage?  There have been many technological improvements in the last 30 years, and yet our cars get much worse mileage.  And MSN has the nerve to call the cars "Fuel Sippers"?  MSN, we can remember 20 years ago, and we can handle simple subtraction.  Please stop treating your readers like they are idiots.

I drive a 2003 VW Jetta TDI that gets 52 MPG with me alone in the car on cruse control going 70 mph gown hwy I-5. I put another adult in the car and the mpg drops to 48mpg, and with two more on board it gets 44mpg and with three others 40mpg and a total of five onboard, it gets 36mpg. Is this a full sixe car? Nope !!! But is one hell of a car. 

 

THIS story is a joke, who allows Evan space to write such stupid stuff. Hard up for making money posting name of cars as you write BS story content.  I'm guessing small minds see an Accord is full size, or should I say fool size...

 

This Story needs to be renamed

 

FOOL SIZE FUEL SIPPERS

Sorry to say...these are full size cars now. B.S. I know, but that is what our government wants us to drive! For me, I will stick to my Grand Marquis and be comfortable and still get 28 mpg!
