    Americans need to stop being sissies and start driving manuals like all the other countries! Sure the Elantra claims 40mpg, but I have been reading by owners much less than that. For the Cruze Eco, I have seen magazine editors get over 43mpg going 80mph with the a/c blowing!

    90% of cars sold are Automatics so the MPG for the Manual is irrelevant.
    The Automatic gets 26/37 and starts at $20,000.
    Check the Hyundai Elantra 29/40 Automatic starting at $17,000, now that is a story.
    LMK why you disagree.

    While this is great news for GM and Chevrolet, I would like to see a lot of these MPG boosting techniques end up on all of GM's vehicles. That would really show people that GM is committed to fuel efficiency.
