Completed a 5000-mile road trip starting in Chicago, Illinois, running through lower Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota, then up into Canada through the Manitoba and Saskatchewan prairies. After a short stay, proceeded through Alberta to the Rockies, across into British Columbia, then south through Montana and Wyoming. Headed east through the Big Horns (let's hear it for mountain blizzard conditions and all-wheel drive), and continued on through South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois back to the Chicago suburbs. Whew.
The car performed admirably; the only real problem was one I created...the hose running from the throttle body elbow to the blow-off valve wasn't secured properly, so it had a tendancy to blow off under more than a few pounds of boost pressure. Found and fixed on the first day of the trip. No other mechanical problems to report; the new brakes came in handy quite a few times, and I'm thinking more seriously about strut tower braces after all the mountain cornering.
