Ok i told you i would keep you posted.

I finally got to ALBUQUERQUE NM about 10mins ago. Im at a Denny's getting some breakfast.

I left phx, az @ 2:58am and got to flagstaff, az @ 4:26am!

Then left from flagstaff, az and headed toward New Mexico. And arrived here in Albuquerque, NM @ 7:50am.

So far the trip has been nice. Not much traffic. Very nice weather out side. I ran my heater from flagstaff to albuquerque only cause it was a little cold<---otherwise great. I did about 82-85mph the whole up to flagstaff. Would have gone faster but the hill is big going up there.

After leaving getting to flagstaff i stopped @ a gas station to check tires, fuel, clean windows, and check fluids just to make sure i was ok, then i was off to albuquerque.

The drive there was great. I hit a couple of bumps on I-40 where some construction was being done; none the less great drive so far. Im going to eat and then im off to Oklahoma City (870miles, 8 hrs) away! I'll keep you posted!

Enjoy your journey...trust me this car is great. I am sure I need not tell you that you have nothing to worry about it.

I travell from Ontario to Quebec at least twice each month. This is like 2,000 km per trip. Twice a month, you do the math....

The care] has always been extra-ordinary.....specially when I am going at 180 km/h...ahahahahaha...

Last time I went home, this lil civic was getting up all in my a$$...ahahahahaha....so I booked it at 180 and poor lil thing vanished into my rear view mirror...ahahahaahaha...

Enjoy the ride!
