Long long trip....


Recommended Posts

Well as you guys may read on the General cars forum i am taking a very long trip on

Friday in the Passat(3500 mls). As well as getting some general advice for the trip

i thought of posting this here to take your advice on how is the car going to cope with

this and whether i need to take some reasonable precautions to make sure the passat copes well.

Any advice is welcomed. 169144-ok.gif
