Default Roadtrip!

I took my first road trip in this car yesterday, went to lake shafer (indiana beach)
From nortwest indiana by gary. Not a super long trip but about 3 1/2 hours total driving time. I was able to go 70 all the way there and back and use only a little over half a tank.
Not one complaint from the car, stayed smooth and cool the whole way there. and with how much space there is inside, it makes this the best roadtrip car ever. IMO

Well, glad to hear it. I would've assumed the Monte wouldnt be a very smooth riding car.

Dad and i went down to savannah for a weekend about a month ago. Bonneville was perfect and we only had to fill it up once! 30MPG FTW
