Now you've got me second guessing myself. I'll have to check when I get home, but I could have sworn that the owner's manual said not to do it. Obviously my car survived the ordeal, but it was not a pleasant trip. Maybe it was the circumstances that left a bad impression.

Not too shabby if the figures are accurate. I am sure the drivetrain and brakes would be up to the task, but wonder about the suspension. Mine wasn't up to it, as shown by how low the car was riding with new shocks and springs. But then, you have the self-leveling suspension, don't you?
