I am planning a road trip from Vancouver, BC down to SF to LA then back to San Jose and then back up to Vancouver in mid August. It's going to be about a 2 week trip in total.
My current vehicle is a 1994 Acura Integra with about 207,000 km on it. I have taken good care of it with having regular scheduled maintenance performed on it. It has never had any problems outside of the the regular replacement needed for like brakes, tires, etc.
As of this time of writing I've spoken to my mechanic and he is a bit hesitant to suggest that I take it down, though he mentions that if I make some stops about every 3 or 4 hours of the way then it could lower the risk of a major problem happening. I have a slight feeling that he is probably erring more on the safer side (and rightfully so as he doesn't want to jeopardize his reputation in case something does happen, but I wouldn't hold him accountable.)
Does anyone else here have any suggestions on whether or not I should drive this vehicle down and back? I definitely do not plan to drive down to SF in one trip. I might even make an overnight stop in Oregan if I need to as I am in no hurry. I would just like to have a vehicle to drive around the city instead of flying and renting a car.
