2005 Chevy Cobalt we have would get about 35 on the highway and 28 in the city.  140 k miles and still not one issue.  Bought my wife a 2012 Chevy Cruz Eco, we get about 43 MPG on the highway and about 34 MPG in town.  These writers are not real world people, they live in their own little bubble where toyotas and hondas are hip.  Hard to get them to say a domestic car is worth anything.

Bring back the diesel rabbit 50mpg.Also I have a rebuilt 283ci Chevy motor in a late model gm car and it gets 30 plus mpg on the highway .For those of you who don't know the 283 motor is a small v8 produced ih the 1960s a good design for longevity and mpg with right trans and rear gears.

My Geo Metro gets 50-55 on the hwy and 40-45 in the city. It's too bad they dont make them any more.

My 2002 Saturn SL2 gets up to 37 mpg on the highway.  Surely newer cars, especially hybrids, should spank it in terms of mpg?

The Counter-Conservation mouthpieces speak, once again parroting the party line that higher fuel efficiency is available only at higher expense and lower performance. The only reality was their inclusion of the DISCONTUED GEO. If the oil industry commisions an article then it should be labeled as such. The Volkswagen Rabbit could hit 40 mpg for gas and 50 mpg for diesel. These are not EPA numbers for new vehicles but what real world "Beaters" in America. Low cost, high efficiency vehicles are common outside the United States but will not be seen here as long as the oil industry has it's say.

You guys are way off the mark on the 2003 Jetta! Mine routinely got 48-51 mpg - COMBINED, except for sub-zero weather. It would go from mid-thumb in MI to Boston on not quite a tank of gas (about 730 miles). Hated to get rid of it at 280K, I still miss that car! The 2010 TDI that I replaced it with more accurately reflects the ratings you gave the 2003, and I am fighting to get that... big disappointment.
