1939, what engine type is it ?

I wouldn't worry too much at the moment regarding the fuel economy.
This will improve as the weather gets better and the engine beds in.

Yes, I also did hear about the price increases.

Other car makers (cough cough Ford) have increased their prices five times in the past 12 months.
The new ford fiesta costs over 12k now

So when comparing like for like, the Rio still comes out on top.

Take it back to dealer about the manifold noise there could be a leaking gasket. After all its still under warranty.
