Fatigue

After a long drive I feel tired and exhausted. It only happens after a long drive of maybe 12 - 15 hours. I'm not sure what it is about the WK2 that causes the fatigue. I never had this problem forty years ago when I had my 1969 Lincoln Continental.

Re: Fatigue

I hate to say it but 40 years is a long time ago. As we age we just don't have the overall energy we had when we were younger.


Also, I'm sure this vehicle is probably much more comfortable and easier to drive than your other car so I'm sure you're more relaxed.

Re: Fatigue

Hell, I'd be worn out after 12-15 hours of sleeping!

Re: Fatigue

This doesn't sound normal at all unless it's butt fatigue, which I myself am experiencing. Take it in to the dealer.

Did you start this post to gather evidence for a class action suit? It's been 34 years since I drove 20 hours straight, but if it will hep I'll plan a trip.

I do suffer from butt fatigue, but the ventilated seats help a little.
