This car is a 2011, practically brand new people. It is a manual transmission, yep thats right stick shift folks so please factor in your stick shift driving skills before renting it. I constantly maintain my vehicle so safety is included at no extra charge. This car will get you up to 40 MPG'S, yep 40 miles per gallon if you drive it conservatively. If you search it it will say 28 to 38 MPG'S but of course this all depends on how you drive it. Safe travels!
