Next summer I intend to travel to Rushmore and Yellowstone in my 100k Civic ('13). My car doesn't have any major issues, was serviced regularly, and had the spark plug replaced, although some unscrupulous mechanics told me my car had additional problems which will cost a pretty penny. I travel by myself.
Should I make the trip with the civic, rent a bigger car, or just fly to Denver and try my luck from there? Which would be more advisible? Time is not an issue.
