ive gotten up to 44 mpg but that was almost all highway at 60-65 mph. i drive an 06 corolla ce 5-spd. i dont consider this a big deal. this is why i bought this car. even with a 50/50 highway/ town mix i have yet to get lower than 36 mpg.
You are really right. While those numbers are great, they reflect what the car was really designed for, and shouldn't be too much of a surprise. I drive an Accord, and have gotten 39.9 MPGs before (70 MPH, no A/C)...couldn't crack that 40MPG mark...I average 35-36 HWY and 29 MPG in mixed...so a Corolla should definitely deliver numbers 5 MPG above that.
Corollas are great cars, it's just a shame that at 6'4", I couldn't drive one comfortably.

....gets 32 city, 40 highway, and that's running 75 with the AC on. If you're looking for a manual in either the Corolla or the Echo, be prepared to look for a while, and be willing to travel some distance to get it. For some reason Toyota builds most of these cars with automatics, so manuals are hard to find. It took me 2 months to find mine.
