Follow Up To: "My Dad Had One of These"

I think my dad had one of these too. In 1980 the Datsun 210 was getting 31city/43hwy MPG? Really? And now, Nissan's Versa only claims 27/33 at best. Again, where are the technological advances we should see after 28 years? The 210 started at $3749. The Versa starts at $12,710. That's a $8,961 increase over 28 years. In percentage that's roughly a little over 3.57%. Again, I think I did my math right. I used cross multiplying. Would that be right?
