Long Drive

Drove last week to Columbus, Ohio. About <7 hrs each way. Cruised for long portions at 125km/hr (77 mph) Mileage at 9L/100km (26usmpg) .
Car worked great, handled well, USB audio great. Nice drive.

Columbus is a lot nicer than it used to be. Dublin is even better, which is right next to Columbus.

How were the seats on the long drive?

Seat was fine. I have rods in my back and was never uncomfortable.
East side of Columbus everything seems new.

Greater Columbus is where your vehicle was assembled. Did your car sound out a "RDX is Home" as it entered Ohio?

That's very good. My 14 and 17 RDX would get 8L/100 KM on a highway trip, but averaged 9L/100 KM in mixed driving. I have driven the 19 RDX and it is quick. Glad to seethe 19 is doing well.
