What I find sad is that, in the early 90's, Suzuki had a 4 wheeled, 3 cylinder, car that could carry two adults and 2 small children in comfort and, with only one person on board got over 65mpg on the highway and 55-60 mpg in city driving. It was also sold by Chevrolet as the GEO Metro XFI. Cost was under $10k. I had one and got 65 mpg or better week in and week out for three years driving 900+ miles a week on my 90 mile each way commute to work. Sadly, when it needed replacement, the XFI version was no longer being made because it hadn't sold well.
