Yep, mpg is in the wheelhouse of the ZF9. Going from my old 14 Accord Sport CVT to my 16 3.5 PAWS (and later my 19 3.5 PAWS) hasn’t resulted in any hit to my fuel economy experiences.

Bill, I had a rental Altima while down in Florida last month and I agree 100%. Terribly mediocre car.

While it’s very true that the V6 TLX’s performance doesn’t come near that of the Q50 V6 (3.7 or 3.0TT), it does make up for it in terms of fuel economy.
