693 mi (about 11 hours 54 mins)

For myself. Would be a fun road trip to their. I think a few went last year when they had the grand opening. I could not make it. But maybe this year if a bunch will do it this year?.?.

I like Hyundai and if I were close I wouldn't mind getting a tour of the plant, but with the way gas prices are now I can't justify taking a road trip (even if it was only a few hours away) just to see the Hyundai plant.

Well, for me, 808 miles is two tanks down and two tanks back, so $120 (say $140 to be safe) round trip, that's cheaper than a plane ticket, haha.

Plus, I rarely drive (36,300 miles right now, the car will be 3 years old in a week), so it's not like I'm putting too much on the car.

And, my route takes me through Charlotte and Atlanta, I'm sure I could meet up (and stay for free) with a bunch of you guys, haha.

368mi from me in Columbia, SC...

not like I post here all that often, but if something happens and I'm in town that week(end), I am definitely in. I'd be willing to meet up with folks in Charlotte or Atlanta if people are convoying down from VA/MD/points north of Charlotte.

Sometimes depending on what options you have as far as carriers are concerned it's cheaper to fly. For example I'll be heading out to San Francisco in a few weeks and the flight from Long Beach, CA to Oakland, CA is $39 each way. If I were driving by myself, that's about an 8 hr drive and probably a tank and a half in gas, one way. I'd spend way more than $39 in gas one way plus the flight takes only 1 hr.

It would be cool but it is just too far for me since I'm in Ohio & the plant is in Alabama. If I happened to be in the area I think it would be interesting though!

I've driven my XD to Florida 4 times.... about 13 hours each way. The seats get a little hard after a while, but overall I think the car is pretty good for road trips. I think it would be cool to tour the plant... I just don't know if I would be able to take the time off to go and meet up with people....
