We were getting around a line of semi's down in NM, so it was a brief spurt and then back down. The wife was in a hurry to get to the Grand Canyon and we spent some extra time shopping in Gallup . It was HER fault! Again, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I did 90 in short spurts because of a wreck on the interstate nearly making me late. Electronic limit is I think 119 MPH. If that can be defeated, well you get the idea. Its more comfortable and controllable at 90 than my Wrangler, didn't feel like I was floating or anything, it held its ground well without shaking or vibrating my kidneys loose. Oh ya, Dodge Caliber that is, yours should be the same.

I've hit 90 a couple of times but slowed down in fear of troopers. It is a smooth solid ride to be moving that fast. Honestly it doesnt seem it

I had a friend that a little more than a month ago got pulled over for 120+ in a 70 on I20/59 here. The guy that pulled him over (the county sheriff, the head guy, not a deputy) red flagged his license, if it'd been me, I'd have been under the jail. I was doing 90 and people were still passing me on the interstate like it was nothing. Evidently my fellow coworkers are also in a hurry.

So is every other car on the market.

Really, any of today's car should cruise along at 90 without problem. I've driven 100 mph in a camry for extended period of time and it feels solid.

So, are you comparing the Camry to the Compass?

I just took it to mean anything that is built for ROAD service as opposed to OFF-ROAD service. Even factory GC's can cruise at 90 pretty well. Anything with a short wheel base and high center of gravity will not handle roads as well as other "cars".

You just failed the first of JF, NEVER call your Jeep a car.

It was in "xxx"s as a generic term and relating to the Caliber/Camry, not Jeep. Besides, I can't spell vehikle.

JF does not condone illegal activities and posting them can lead to being banned. Be careful on this one. Do you have a speed limit there?
