I'm going to be doing a 250 mile round-trip every week. What are some cars that will make that less onerous on my back and soul?

        it was in a honda element 5 speed. a car meant for hip young campers, unless you have to go above 65mph as it seems lol
        my saturn has much better gearing and is way better on the highway

            the element? yeah its at 6.5k and it cuts revs at 7k.

            ???? Why does everyone complain about having your car at 4k+ RPM? That's where the power is at.

            you go drive at 4k for 10 hours then drive at 2k for 10 hours in a shitty 4 cyl and come back to me. I dont want to be"in the power" when im cruising at a constant speed

    dunno how poor you are or which particular shithole you're from, but if it's somewhat modern and mechanically sound any regular car above a subcompact will do you just fine.

      IDK, I rented a chevy Cruze a few years ago for a road trip like that, and it was pretty good. Manual mode made the most of 4 cylinder power and the car got 25+ MPG. It was comfy and stable threading traffic and getting to our destination in decent time. Contrast that with a U-HAUL which was far bigger, more expensive and far more tiresome to drive. As long as you're not taking tons of shit with you, the compact sedan is decent

        That’s cause uhauls suck

          The U-Haul in question was a Chevy box van. Basically the biggest Chevy on the road. The car I compared it to is the cruise. One of the smaller chevys they have made recently. Compact is better for driving than big car

            Yeah you are driving a shitty box van, try a full-size suburban or pickup truck. They just eat up miles.

    250 miles isn't that far but doing it every week will wring out the novelty.

      250 round trip even, so one way is a 2-2,5 hour drive? Seems fine but I have the suspicion OP is from Serbia or Pakistan were going 250 miles takes a day (or 3 if the gypsies stole the bridge again)

    Like driving in to work Monday morning, driving home from work Friday evening type schedule? 125 miles twice a week?
    Cadillac ELR or BMW i3.

    If you can plug them in you'll basically halve your fuel costs, and even in range-extended mode they're really efficient.
    A step above the typical used Volt or Prius in comfort.

    my grandpa drove a volvo 850 200 miles a day and loved it. he changed to a brand new turbo diesel vw for economy but said he missed how comfy the old volvo was. this was back when diesel was cheaper than normal gas.

    I have no experience with USDM cars so even if they might be good, I can't include them, but here are a few I have experience with and think are worth your time.

    >BMW E39
    Even the base model is incredibly comfy, and they're great cruisers for very little money.

    >Jaguar X300 or X308
    People will also turn their nose up at Jaguars because "muh reliablity", but the X300 and X308 are great cars, and except for maybe the ABS module, they're pretty damn reliable.

    >E60
    Not really my taste as they're a bit too modern, but I can't deny it was a comfy car. They suffer from a couple more mechanical issues than the E39, though, and the owners are generally more neglectful. I find E39's attract pensioners, where as E60's attract spades.

    I should add I did this sort of thing for a few years, and bought a Model 3 for it. If you have off-street parking with the ability to plug it in it will handle 125 miles twice a week with no trouble with just a 120v 20a outlet. Pretty much any efficient mid or long range electric car would be the same way. I think the Ioniq 6 might be more comfy than the 3 for the money, but everybody says the new 3 upped the ride quality and noise.

    Ioniq 5 or Model Y would do this too, but you might need a 240v 30a outlet since crossovers are more power hungry.

        Some panthers take E85 so he might be a corn barron which makes him an enemy of the oil sheik.
