    Looking at them, but I read that it takes premium gas, is that true?

    I'm looking to save money on gas by getting rid of my SUV, so if I have to spend $.30 more per gallon, it won't be worth it.

    Any other thoughts on the car?

    Thanks

    I had one for a loaner a couple times when I took my TL in for service.
    It's got a lot of upgrades compared to the same size Honda or similar car. It was pretty peppy for a 4 banger.

    As for the mileage savings Vs the price of Premium fuel, I think need to do the math for yourself since I don't know what kind of miles per gal you get with your SUV.

    If you gain 10 MPG over your SUV, I would think that would more than pay for the extra .30 per gallon.

    15 gal tank @ 15 mpg = 225 miles/tank ($45.00 @ $3.00/gal)
    15 gal tank @ 25 mpg = 375 miles/tank ($49.50 @ $3.30/gal)
    150 miles (extra per tank) divided by 25 (MPG) = 6 (extra gallons per tank) x $3.30 = $19.80 - $4.50 = $15.00 savings per tank

    I haven't done a precise comparison, but top of my head from the last few fillups have been about $25 savings per fillup. Prices have come down about $.20 a gallon, so the calculations are a little off.

    Also, 10.5 gallons of gas gets me about the same amount of miles as I did with 18 gallons on my old car.

    24mpg vs. 15mpg with the old SUV.

    I'm very happy so far, it's an awesome car. I had my windows tinted, and will be adding some other options over the next few months.
