Quite a detailed outline of the trip. $895 for 7/100K warranty is excellent. Trusy it is an Acura one, can you confirm.
Er..., NAVI seems to correct to suggest you to take 101 from 5 and back to 5. That is the alternate route to get to 5 Northern bound. I learned that from local folks, although not seems intuitive initially. But traffic wise it makes sense.
Quite a good mileage initially. I got only 21 MPG but I am on cruise at 85~90 mph and full AC during summer time.
Just wonder if Tim's can do the $895 for the Acura warranty 7/100K. I will be the first to buy
Overall, great purchase and trip back, GCK, not to mention a free cargo mat (do you mean "tray"?)
