I am planning a trip in September, where I would drive from Toronto to Washington D.C - which is about 480 miles.
My vehicle is a 2005 Toyota Camry LE. I just bought it used in January and aside from having some issues (some fairly unwelcome issues that were difficult to deal with, but were eventually repaired). I do a fair bit of driving in my opinion, as it had 115km when I got it and it has 131km now.
I also bought it certified and emissiones, so it all around seems like a not bad vehicle.
Already this year, I took a trip to Big Flats, NY from Toronto and had no issues other than the car not starting once or twice at the hotel (was happening before I left home but not a big enough deal at the time. It turned out to be an end of life battery… which has been replaced with a brand new one). All 4 tires were replaced as well, with a 100,000 km guarentee.
I feel like saying that after buying it only 16,000 km ago, after being certified by the government; emission tested by the government; having the rotors, calipers and pads replaced on the front; having both rear brakes serviced despite them supposedly not needing it (the chirping noise from the back has not happened since the service was completed); replacing a front wheel bearing; having the gas tube re-sealed to prevent fume leak, replacing the battery with new, replacing all four tires with new… I feel like saying it should be no problem to take it on this road trip.
Especially since I drive mainly freeway and have not experienced any issues in a while, all the while getting around 700-800 km on a tank of gas.
However, I am not a car specialist - so I figured I would come here and ask those who know more than myself.
So in your opinion, do you think it would be fine to proceed with the trip?
