Are there any 'good' years? Any way to tell how much 'true' mileage on car? If the lifetime mileage is a way to tell some history, how do you check that when you sit down in the seat?

I'm still looking for one to even sit in to check out ergonomics.

Can they really get 70 mpg if driven wisely?

Thanks.

From 2000 thru 2005 the cars have very few meaningfull differences. I'd say the newer the better because the IMA components (mostly the battery) has less use and there's more room left on the warranty.

The dash is all electronic. The total mileage is displayed there and while not fool proof, it's more difficult to mess with than a mechanical odometer.

The car continuously calculates lifetime MPG (though it can be reset) and also separately for each of 2 trip meter functions. There's also a 4th display that's activated by pressing a black button on the left side of the dash labeled "FCD". So, there is 4 miles-per-gallon calculations going on, each of which you can easily view.

I'd advise posting where you're located, someone will probably offer to let you checkout their car.

Yes, you absolutely can.
