With 35MPG, this would be a great commuter car for me. However, my worry is they'll do something stupid like they did with the Baja. When Baja came out years ago, I almost started negotiating with the dealer before I found out that instead of fitting 3 seats across in the back seat like the Outback it was based on at the time did, it had a stupid storage compartment built into the middle seating position thus making it impossible and illegal (no seat belt even) to seat another passenger there. Instead, I bought another Outback at the time and I suspect this happened with a LOT of people thus helping lead to Baja's demise. SOA, even if the middle seating position is a bit narrow (ala Outback), please be sure to put a seat belt there so I can take my wife AND 3 kids with me in a pinch or this vehicle is off my list. I know the Mazda 3 I recently rented had this and it worked great for us other than the fact it was a crappy Mazda...
