Default I am proud of my car.

I took at trip up north this past weekend. It was the first time I have taken my car on a fairly long road trip. The most I have ever had my car going was for about 2.5 hours. The drive up took around 5 hours, with only 2 very short stops.

During the trip ...

- I drove through 2 storms and 2 SEVERE storms (in which I couldnt see a thing)
- Stop and go traffic
- Endless passes on 2 lane roads at WOT
- And hot humid weather

The car stayed below 190 degrees F, and it ran great the whole way. I was very impressed with how this car can stay consistent, even through harsh driving.

Is your car paid for? If so, why sell it? Dont mind me. I am saying stuff people said to me when I said i wanted to get rid of my car after I told them some good things about it.
