I was unlucky enough to have
problems at 16k odd but thereafter and so far touch wood, the drive is great.
Check the cars got FSH, it would be cool if you could find one thats already had the cam belt changed because thats not cheap and is due at either 5 years or 70k going to work and back in full traffic, I'm getting 33ish MPG on the Mways I'm returning anything up to 50 MPG but like you would expect this depends very much on your driving style.
Over a week doing nothing other than use the car for going to and returning from work I've never had a return of less than 32 MPG averaging something stupid, like 14 MPH.
