For me Ive driven 525 miles in 7.5hrs in my corolla only stopping once for a gas fillup and something to eat. Ive made the trip several different times. I start getting uncomfortable anytime I drive over 30 minutes in it so those long trips were never fun for me. Whats the longest youve driven?

For me in a Corolla it'd probably be about 500 or so miles. New Orleans to Dallas

In any car it'd be about 800 in one day. That was in my '87 Blazer from Cincinnati to New Orleans. My girlfriend and I went to Cedar Point for a few days then Kings Island (both roller coaster parks) for a day. She was soooo worn out she slept the whole way back.

I usually try to keep trip lengths to about 7 hours of actual driving. Cruise control and rest breaks help.

Dragon you must have really been hurting after 15hrs sitting in a corolla. I was hurting good during my 7hr trips and that was even with using pillows for extra comfort.

too long to remember, but there was a stretch where my friend and I drove over 24 hours consecutively stopping only for gas and washroom breaks. not something I would want to do again.
I wouldnt even want to do that in a RV with a comfortable sofa and a bed, let alone in a corolla. You guys must have been sore the day after. Thank God Ive never had to do that.

Ive done many 800+ mile days on my 5 cross-country trips,

but the most was about 1000 miles in 12 hours.

I drove 100mph through the utah salt flats and into nevada. Did like a tank and a half of gas at 95+mph and the rest at about 80 or so.

From halifax Nova scotia to melbourne florida, 3600km in 33 hours
If I drove a trip like that in a corolla with stops included, I'd still probably have to be pulled out of the car regardless. lol

Omair that sounds about right. My auto LE runs 3200rpms at 90mph.
