Has anyone done any long road trips? Like a couple of 8 hour days in the car? What's the ride like after hours on the road? What about the seats...Recaros or cloth, not the width but comfort for a road trip car? What about "highway drone"?

Colin you wouldn't happen to drive an OX White fiesta do you? I swore I saw a white fiesta ST on the 8 Freeway. It could be someone else and maybe a non fiesta.

I'm 30 and have taken this thing on two longer road trips. First one was 7 hour (each way) stint down to Tennessee and the most recent was a 4 hour there and 6 hour return trip to NJ for the holidays. The trip to NJ i can the little car packed with to the max along with two decent sized dogs in there. Sometimes over expansion joints the car can get a bit choppy, but that's expected b/c of the short wheel base. Overall it does great on the trips. My one complaint is the stiff suspension, it has a tendency to "crash" over large bumps/dips and such vs absorb them. Small price to pay for how fun it is to drive. I use a lot of cruise control on the trips and have averaged about 30mpg on both.
