We just got back last weekend from a trip from SC to Ky and I have to say I was very impressed with the ride. It was very comfortable for a 7 hour drive, my husband had no problem sleeping on the passenger side, held all of out luggage with no problems and best of all we made it there on 1 and a 1/4 tanks of gas. On the trip up there we averaged 25 MPG and back was 27 MPG. She did make some noise going up the mountains a few times but the power was always there and the handling was wonderful. I was really looking foward to testing the car out on this trip and it vertainly didn't disappoint.
