I've never bought anything that had an EPA sticker on it and my newest car was 10 years old when I bought it. Wait, I take that back, when my dad got a new car and I got his old one that one was I think 6 or 7 years old. But I also researched the cars I've purchased and knew what kind of mileage I should expect from them. The one that did surprise me was my motorcycle. I wasn't expecting the mileage to be so good on that one lol.
