Great drive, gorgeous scenery, and smooth roads. You can hang it out as much as you like. Great visibility down the road, with passing areas.
This was my 1st long drive in the '02 wagon and it performed faultlessly. Lots of 4/5th gear straights (90-100 with out getting to hairy) lots of great 3rd gear hard corners to rail, most with smooth transitions (entrances and exits).
Very little traffic, the whole road descends along side of a river and not lots of gaurd rails, so if you f-up be preparred for a swim.
