Great car! Just took it for a 600 mile trip from Long Island up to Albany area. Handled great the whole trip. On the way up, I hit 96mph and she was smooth. On the trip down, I hit 105mph and she was still smooth.

My gas mileage was not that great, but when I am on the highway with very few cars around, I tend to drive faaaast. I think I averaged 30.5mpg going up, and 32.5mpg coming back. The trip back, other than the , was driven more conservatively with an average speed of about 78-80. Going up, I averaged well over and had a NY State Trooper pass me while I was cruising at about . Arrived home and had to wash her due to the salt on the roads from the Nor-Easter Sat-Sun. No problems at all!
