    " I'll also follow up on a comment left on a prior update in which a reader asked if we've been filling up with regular or premium gas. We've put premium 91 octane gas in a few times, but the vast majority of fill-ups have been with regular."

    After my experiences with a turbo-charged Volvo, I have to say that regular gas is a false economy. I see the mindset that only "prestige" cars take premium is alive and well at Edmunds even after the Chevy Cruze proved that turbos run best with premium.

    My rental Escape in Miami was a bad choice.We had to start it up early just to let it cool off enough for rear seat passengers.At least I had a cool right hand on the steering wheel.
