Default Buying an is300, NEED HELP

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie to this form and I really love it! I've been researching the IS300's for a while and am pretty sure I want to buy one. My dilema is with the gas mileage. 18/22 is what I believe is advertised, but I'm wondering how that translates into today's prices. I've read many owner reviews where on the scale of 1-10(highest), owners have rated the fuel economy as low as 2 and as high as 8. 6&7's were pretty common.

I currently have a '94 Integra (auto) which has a higher mileage rating that the IS, but because I have so many miles on it, (222K) the mileage has slipped a bit which will makes it difficult for me to compare the two. I'd appreciate finding out:[/align][/align]1)what mileage you guys are getting. I'm nervous I won't be happy with the gas mileage. I know how you drive makes a difference, but your input will still be valuable.

2) cost of ownership. Is maintenance expensive??
[/align]3)I plan to purchase a 2004 with about 55K miles. I found one for just under $16K and I've checked both carfax and autocheck...clean title! What do you think?

Thanks, in advance, for your help!! [/align]
