Has anybody noticed it? If it has to deal with additional load, be it higher speed or towing, turbo engine will use much more additional fuel than NA engines, either similar powered V6 or even weaker I4.

lease

Hey, Looking to grab an entry-level car (think Civic, Corolla, Cruze, Jetta, etc.) for a family member. As long as it's got a backup cam and heated front seats, and is automatic, I think it'd suffice. A lease from 24-48 months with 20,000 km annually would be nice. Even with my preferred pricing, le...
