Thumbs Up Road Trip so far

We are just outside Indy in Greenville Indiana car is running like a top and we are doing right at 30.2 mpg per the DIC, I think the mountains and 75 mph speed limit hurt the mileage a little, we got a lot of rain because of Ike but looks clear the rest of the way should be in MI tomorrow.

Hey Tom! Nice to hear from you again! Glad to hear your trip is going well, and I hope you are having a great time!

Also glad to hear that there are no service traction issues, or anything else.

Your Aura is delivering impressive mileage so far!

Thumbs Up Re: Road Trip so far

Well trip is over and we are back home put a total of 5644 miles on the car ran great, high elavation I saw was 7000 ft no problems and per the DIC we averaged 29.8 mpg which isn't all that bad, I think the 75 mph in a cople of states hurts that a little.
That said I'm ready to keep this car only complaint is after 5 hours or so behind the wheel my left cheek gets numb

Default Re: Road Trip so far

Nice to hear you enjoyed the trip!

Mileage is very good! honestly, slightly under what I thought it would be.

I also agree, after driving my Aura for over 4 hours once, it became slightly uncomfortable, even with the heated seat
