My 2009 Rio 5 gets lousy mileage too. My previous car, 1990 Civic got around 33 mpg driving to work. Got only 22 mpg on my last tank (25/35 rating) with the Rio. Why doesn't our government enforce the gas mileage?

Just an update, now our 2007 Sedona van has over 50,000 miles on it and still is getting over 20 mpg highway. Even with the bad for mpg oxigenated feul we have an studded winter tires we got 22 mpg on a trip across the state at an average of 75 mph. There are 2 mountain passes in that average as well. No problems except an air bag light that needed something under warrenty, and a leaking oil filter after the GM dealer doubled up the o rings on the filter. It is making some power steering noise I think (could also be alternator), will try changing that fluid come spring with an additive and hope it goes away! Overall we are very satisfied with this van but seening as how they stopped making them, next van will be one of those new high power 2011 Caravans after they hit the used car market, cause I don't buy new!
