Any trip lasting longer than one tank of gas is really pushing the envelope on most Jap cars...especially the newer ones. A good friend of mine just inherited a 2009 Chevy Cobalt. They ordered the parts for the ignition recall, and ended up driving all over the Western US to visit relatives....Strange, the ignition never turned itself off once, it didn't crash and nobody got killed. Carouser and Carouser, Alice... Of course their old ride, a "Cash-For-Clunkers" poster child, '96 Ford Exploder, would have been hard pressed to make it into town (25miles) and back.

An update and good news. Just returned from a long distance trip from Colorado into Wyoming and back, via said vehicle. No issues. Went into some pretty stiff winds, up and down the mountains, and it didn't cough once.

 

We will call this thing fixed. With the exception of the windshield. Caught a rock and cracked it behind a gravel truck………...

I thought the Japanese always had the mechanical bases covered and a problem never rolled off the assembly line...................   :-)

 

Those rock haulers are a big problem around here. The highway is littered with rocks from trucks hauling that stuff to the wind farms, oil rigs, and so on.

Can anyone give me the maintenance interval on the trans fluid change out? And if there is a filter involved? Seems mother unit is getting the run around now from the clowns that just did her TSB. Image that?

 

She has 45 K on the clock.
