So me and my fiance are going on a month long road trip in September. We are going to see the West coast (starting in Mn, North Dokota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa then back home). About 5000 miles. The point of this trip is to see as many National parks as we can so my fiance who is a photographer can take pics. I have two car options I could take on this trip. The first is our "97 Dodge Advenger that has just over 200,000 miles on it. The second is my mothers 2006 Hondai Sonata. The good thing about taking my own car is that if something were to happen I would be ok with fixing it. Im on a budget so I would hate to make fixes to a car thats not mine. I just want to know if anyone else has taken an older high milage car on a long road trip? Do you have tips? I have taken long road trips like this before but that was mostly when I had a 2007 BMW. The one thing that is making me think my car can take this is our last road trip (mn, Niagra falls, NY, DC, Carolina, florida, Texas, then back up north to Mn and it did fine, but that was when it was at about 170,000 miles. ANybody have an ideas on what they would do?
