My 04 Aero gets about 34-35 mpg tops on a long highway journey to the pacific northwest from LA. I've done the drive a couple of times and it's tuned. My 2.0T XWD maybe a little less since there's added weight, around 32. These cars are good on the highway, the street can take a toll if it's an on and off the pedal sort of drive. My 08 2.8 Aero, which is high mileage (173K) but it's tip-top (coils, plugs, oil, filters, tires, bearings, suspension, etc, you name it, it's been replaced/very well maintained) just sucks in street traffic, but highway driving, it's not far from my 04's range.
