    Just drove from northern California to Atlanta.

    Ride is rough at certain speeds. and esp decelerate from 95. it shakes when coasting?

    gas was great at 65mph. 20+21mpg. any higher gas mpg. dropped significantly.

    going to look for new seats at junkyards while I'm here. need new seat!!

    is there such a thing as deluxe or lx seats leather for replacement?

    oh yeah left on Friday at 3pm. arrived in Atlanta at 9est tonight Monday.
