Your gas mileage surprises me. I am also an old guy and have had my SX for just shy of a year. My driving is basically local in town with an occasional shot on the interstate for a few miles to the next town. I consistently get total mileage in the los 30's and it has been in that range since I first picked up the car last May (2020).I agree with the options statement. I have an SX, but was a bit disappointed in available options for it. No passenger power seat, no memory driver seat, pathetic sounding Bose audio, panoramic sunroof, limited paint colors, and much more I could go on about. Gas mileage is also very disappointing. I'm an old guy and drive like an old guy, yet in town I can't even break 20 MPG. It's usually in the high teens. The service writer at the dealership says oh it'll get better after 12,000 miles. WTF?? That's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard!
