    That recall is huge. I normally like KIA, but that would make me look at something else. I bought a new Mirage so I wouldn't have to buy anything else for the next 10-15 years.

    I average around 42-43 mpg when I fill up in the winter, & about 45-48 in the summer. If I didn't get 40+ mpg year round, I would sell the car & drive something else. My last tank was 46.7 mpg.

    I think factory size 15" rims on my cousin's 2007 Colorado looks a bit small. Today, a 2020 Chevy Colorado would have 16" or 17" rims. My 2011 Forester has 16" rims.
