Surprisingly good car to drive but very thirsty on petrol

Bad points..67,000 miles....only 30 mpg average ( manual petrol) which is far below official 40 mpg...very disappointing. Windscreen has terrible headlight glare which I have never come across before. This makes night driving unpleasant. Automatic window system seems very primitive compared to Toyota. Alloys showing shocking corrosion. Underside of car seems more corroded than I ever experienced with a Carina or Corolla.
Good points...my partner finds it very comfortable and she is Very fussy. Steering and ride are excellent as is manual gear change. Dashboard and radio show excellent design. Seats are very comfortable. Had to replace knock sensor £256 at local garage.
