My 2001 Saturn SL1 (manual tranny) gets 37mpg, and you can get one that old for about $4000.

The g/f's Ford Contour gets 42 MPG... a coworker also had a Contour get the same mileage. They need the heads torqued or problems do arise when they warp. The woman creature has 156K with no problems so far.

efficient and American car does not belong in the same sentance.

Hawker.....i couldn't agree with you more.

''American made autos'' is kind of a farce.
Nearly everyone imports something in the cars.....probably because they want it to be reliable.

That was going to be my reply. Most people associate the big 3 with 'american made' but some of the the imports are more american made. I'm willing to bet that Toyota employee's more WVian's than any other auto maker.

I have a new Outback.

Very highly rated for reliability and quality. Mine is a 4 cyl, 5 speed manual, non turbo. First 1600 miles averaged 26.5 MPG, with about 23-24 city and 30+ highway.

I love it.

And its made in the US...
