Re: 2,500 miles in a GT
Nice to hear you found the GT a good cruiser! We're off to visit my parents in the middle of France in August (near Angouleme), and we're taking the GT. We've got a 7 year old too, plus a 5 year old, so it could be a bit cramped, but heh, my seat's comfy! I take it you have the diesel though? I'd be surprised to get 30mpg from my 2.0JTS with the extra load we'll be taking.
Edit: coincidentally we're also going via Rouen (that nice new stretch of Autoroute is great), in fact we're staying overnight there in one of those cheap B&B places.
