Edmunds Review of the XFE

OK, so they recorded a "real world" 25 mpg from the Cobalt XFE in mixed driving conditions. I am getting 40+ in mixed driving conditions. One of us is not driving in the "real world".

My point to this? Why in the world would you take a car built for mpg and drive the thing like a stolen SS? Idiots.

Here is the You tube vid.

You forgot, you're talking about Edmunds, one of two car comparo groups that think the japanese stuff is the holy grail of automotive greatness... I don't trust Consumer Reports, or Edmunds....

haha, well what do you expect when you beat the crap out of it! consumer reports are always so biased and opinionated no matter what they say. I'm happy with my XFE and I don't care what edumbs has to say lol.
