RTF's are only safe for about 50 miles of driving at no pressure. Beyond that, there can come apart. An RFT driven any distance at no pressure is supposed to be replaced. As you eluded to, the whole RFT and no spare logic goes out the window on a road trip.

My main reason for me buying BMW's is road trips. Because of the threats of parking lot dings and vandalism where I live (Bubbaville, Floriduh), I tend to drive my Cobalt more than my 535i around town.
