I'm new to the forum and am looking for some advice on a long distance road trip. I have a potential trip planned for around the country that totals out to about 7,000 miles, but my only vehicle option at the moment is my 2002 Jetta with 158,000 miles on it. I just had the brake pads replaced and its in moderate condition. Does anyone have any advice or opinions on long distance trips with high mileage cars? Not sure if I should take the risk or postpone/shorten my trip. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
