I was planning on using a kia spectra, ~2004 model, 4 cylinder car on this roadtrip. There will be four people, and it'll be a 1600 mi. trip over a course of 6 days. The max amount of driving we will do in any one day is around 7~8 hrs (the rest of the days will be between 1-5 hrs of driving). Also, I dont know if this makes any difference, but we won't be driving continuously for that amount of time. We'll definitely be taking couple hour breaks inbetween those driving times to see some things along the way.
Basically, I'm wondering if its safe to use this car on such a trip. My dad continuously is telling me that the car will explode, so I thought I probably wanted a second opinion. any input would be greatly appreciated - thank you
