I'm sure I posted before, but with about 95% city driving, the few times I actually calculated the mileage, I might get 13mpg. That doesn't bother me considering how comfortable and quiet the ride is.

You would be much better off finding a clean 50-60,000 mile example for the high teens and go to Hawaii with the $12,000 you will be saving.
