Happy with 2.0L engine
I don't drive slow on the highway and I still muster up around 25-27mpg. I have the CVT as well. If you want to get good MPG don't run the autostick. Watch the RPM's if you do have the autostick. When running about 70 mph, go from auto to 6th gear in autostick and you'll jump up about 300-350 rpm, YIKES! Didn't realize thats how you kick off overdrive.
Generally pleased with the 2.0L. I got it considering the cost of gas. Just went up to 3.39 a gallon here 60 miles south of Chicago.
