Can I do this?

Ok I have 250 miles on the car, wife wants me to drive it down to Dothan to go to the show tonight. It would be a highway drive, would this hurt the car?

No, but drop the wife off at the door and park it under a light at the far end of the parking lot where nobody else is parked or will parked.

:don't take my word for it: but I believe as long as you don't stay at the same speed for a long period of time you should be good...just try to variate your speed on the way by about 5-10 mph or so

you can do whatever you want, you can't hurt it. one of my 02's saw 20 1/4 mile runs before 200 miles..

Scott -

C'mon buddy. You know this is a solid car - that's why you bought it. Trust GM a little. It will be fine. They beat these to death so you don't have to worry about it.

No my wife is filling in at a Dothan store, she is a pharmacist. And since she makes 3 times what I make with my job and my business I think if she wants to drive it she gets to.

I should of went into the medical field.

I don't think it should hurt the car. Just try to avoid the 100 mph mark
