Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help you the best I can.

If I were in your situation I would understand the apprehension to drive a strange or new vehicle such a long distance...

I would find a local shop, any shop that does general repairs (tire dealer, independent, even a midas or monro) and schedule it for a check over/trip check. Most places do it for a very small fee or even for free. A lot of places will do one for free with an oil change (which wouldnt be a bad idea anyway for your travel) and check your fluids, etc...

Many states require vehicle sellers to allow for a third-party inspection before a sale even, so you may consider getting it checked over before the deal is closed.
