    I was thinking of getting a new Camry, Accord, or CR-V in an automatic 4 cylinder can anyone tell me what kind of city mileage to expect? Thanks.

    I don't knwo the exact numbers, but very high 20's to mid 30's city, easy.

    Can't go wrong with a Toyota or Haonda, they are built to last.

    my family has a 94 (or 95, same difference) Camry with the 4cylinder and automatic. I get ~450 or so miles to the tank in with combined city/highway when I rarely use the AC; with the AC on all the time, mileage goes down significantly (~4-5mpg?)

    Yeah, Honda and Toyota are about as reliable as you can get.

    My college classmate has a 1989 Camry automatic four-banger (original owner). It's still running strong AND smooth. Now that's quality.

    I know the late 80's early 90's hondas and toyotas run forever, but I know the toyotas will start rusting pretty bad (my brother has had 2 early 90's toyotas, his pickup is rusting like crazy). The car will look like crap but drive like it was new all the way until the driver seat rusts out and falls through the floor (about half a million miles or so ;f).

    My 1995 Civic has 230,000 miles on it. It runs like a champ and burns very little, if any, oil.

    I think about getting a new or newer Civic often, but until I have a good reason, I'm not going to.

    Try looking at fueleconomy.gov. It has various combinations of options and fuels for most of the new vehicles out this year and goes back quite aways for used cars.

    I bought a used Chevy Prizm a few weeks ago as a commuter- this car is a Toyota Corolla that Chevy put its own stickers on. I bought it because I wanted something that didn't burn much gas and I heard good things about Honda+Toyota. It's got 108K on it but it runs very smooth and works great. Even the a/c will make you cold when it's 90 degrees outside. So far it gets about 32 mpg in town with the a/c cranked up (I have a two year old I take with me and don't want him to get baked in the back seat).
