Hello, new here.

I have a 2002 Dodge Intrepid with 81,000 miles on it. I have had the cylanoid (sp?) replaced and kept up with the oil changes every 3-4000 miles. 95% of my driving is all highway miles, 30 miles to work one way. I am taking a road trip with my family this weekend and am a little worried about taking my car. It hasn't been acting up or anything, just paranoid something may happen because I am getting up there in the mileage. It is only about a 4 hour drive, 500 miles round trip. Am I being silly? We just had an oil change yesterday. Any help anyone can offer me to ease my fears would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
Melissa

Sounds like a well maintained car. You should be completely fine, especially since most of your miles are highway miles anyway.

Welcome aboard...

You should be fine for your trip. My '02 has 247,xxx kms on it (154,xxx miles) and I still pull 8hr round trips into Michigan and back.
