Doesn't surprise me at all. We love taking ours on long trips. I like that more than running it hard.

It's the most comfortable road trip car I've owned. The trip to C5 Fest was great!

I had to test out the trip factor in this car almost immediately after buying it, had 200 miles on it when I started, nearly 600 when I got back. I must say it's a great ride and the V6 does get great mileage. Not the 38mpg my Cobalt got on the same trip but 27.5 isn't bad at 70mph the whole way. It's also the smoothest car I've ever driven. We had a little SUV, and have a crossover and the Balt and this car takes these horrible country roads better than any of them did. I was shocked the first time I drove on one of these roads with it.

Sounds about right, drove mine from Northern California (Sacramento) all the way to Las Vegas Nevada. Pretty fun drive, wasn't uncomfortable, even in the back. Hit about 25-27mpg avg. Just didnt like the ticket I got =]

How do you get comfortable on long distance trips? I occasionally make the ~400 mile trip to Milwaukee from Detroit and my shoulders get sore from my arms hanging from the wheel.
My arms/elbows don't rest on anything if I'm driving the proper 10 & 2 o'clock position. The best I've been able to do is rest my arms in my lap holding the bottom of the wheel which certainly isn't safe.
