I'm guessing you meant the last option to be Over 1000 miles. We did a 2100 mile round trip this spring. That would be the 3rd such trip in it.

Even though I only have 10,000 miles on my car, I have made (2) 800 mile round trips to Athens, GA - to pick up my daughter from college.

My '05 is too new to have traveled, but my old '03 went, to be exact, 6,681 miles (Pittsburgh - Yosemite - Bay area - Mount Hood - Yellowstone - home). That was in the good old days of last summer, when the most expensive gas was $2.38 a gallon near Yosemite (sniff, sniff...) These days, I can't afford to go as far as Cleveland.

At least the car tolerated the trip well, averaged almost 35 mpg, no chips in the windshield and only a couple that I could see in the paint.

Haven't taken any real long trips yet, the longest drive I've been for was 250 miles in the Elantra.
Done the Melb<->Sydney trip plenty of times though, that's 530 miles each way. Just not in the Elantra yet!

Well, I drive between Houston and OK City about 3-4 times a year, 487 miles each way. Last time coming back, I did it non-stop with 2 gallons of gas left.
I guess I selected wrong, I just selected 1 way, not round trip.

Anyone else think the XD has some hard backbuster seats for a long trip? Then again it's a $10k car so can't complain too much. Mine lacks cruise control so any trip over about 200 miles & my foot will start to fall off.
