10/3/10 - Danny wrote: I have a 1995 Honda Accord EX, 4-cyl, 5-speed manual transmission. Has 287,000 miles and still runs great. Drive about 100 miles RT daily (M-F) and about 1000 miles RT each month from TN to VA and back. Major repairs: exhaust system, radiator, water pump, clutch, tie-rod ends, wheel brgs, CV joints, all belts and hoses.
10/2/10 - Mike wrote: This is I think my fourth entry in the high mileage club. My 1999 Honda Accord now has 206k miles on her. The only thing that I have had to have repaired in the last year was the VTEC oil pressure switch (which was a fifty dollar part). I'm going to have the timing belt replaced this year, somwhere around 215k miles and hopefully that will be it. I've continued to avoid any transmision problems which is surprising for an automatic with over 200k miles. The car has the original struts, exhaust, alternator, starter, and many, many more of the components that would normaly fail on most other vehicles. Here's to another year in the Silver Bullet.

09/17/10 - Edward wrote: I have a 1998 Honda Civic DX with 155,000 Miles. I have driven this car for 10 years with no major issues. I love my Honda. I call it my "SUV" -- small utility vehicle. It has taken me all over America. Anyone who does not drive a Honda is crazy because money does not grow on trees and cars are our second most expensive purchase. To all who drive a Honda I applaud you for saving the planet from excessive fuel consumption...
09/16/10 - Anthony wrote: I have a '99 TL I purchased in 2004 with 85k miles... 6 years later and approaching 250,000. No serious issues, replaced transmission at 180k, aweswome car with DVD navi option. Engine purrs like a kitten. Best $13,500 I have spent on a vehicle. Plan to get at least 300k from this engine.
09/16/10 - Jason wrote: I have a 1999 Acura TL 240,000 miles. Have replaced the ignition switch, timing belt, maintenance etc. No problems, great car.
09/15/10 - Justin wrote: I have a 1995 Honda Prelude Si - I'm the original owner and I have over 351,000 miles on my car! I'm driving this thing until it decides to stop moving! No major problems at all, I always keep up with the oil changes, use premium gas as is recommended and it still looks great!
09/10/10 - Mike wrote: I purchased a 2005 Civic LX new in late '05, manual transmission, gets 36-38 mpg at 70+, and 40-42 mpg at 60-65. Commute is 175 miles daily; I just hit 229,000 miles. No major problems, just the usual; oil changes at 5K, tires, brakes, wipers, headlights, battery. Bought "forever tires" from a local chain, never have to buy another tire as long as I own the car. (First set of Yokohama TRZ lasted 103K, second set now has 76K on them, they get balanced and rotated every 6K for free.) Thinking I should find another '05 and garage it until this one wears out!
09/6/10 - Rob wrote: I bought my 1st Honda in 1982. A brand new silver 5 speed Prelude. I drove the car and had the Honda dealer do all the regular scheduled maintenance. Traded in the Prelude with 150,000km for a 1986 Accord in 1990 as the kids were coming fast and furious and we needed more room. I wish I would have kept the Prelude as a 2nd car. I am currently looking to buy a 1982 Prelude. I bought a 2001 Civic DX-G which has 220,000 kms and is running like its new. I still have the Honda dealer do all the scheduled maintenance, oil change every 5000 kms. I'm sure the car will run to 400,000kms. You can't beat a Honda.
09/4/10 - Pat wrote: I have a 2003 Honda Accord EX V-6. Current mileage is 244K. First and only owner. Seecond transmission (done at 180K) otherwise it's been typical maintenance issues. Just had to replaced AC condenser and hoses but those types of repairs are common with the mileage. Very pleased with the car despite the original transmission failure. All OEM parts used for maintenance and repairs.
08/29/10 - Warren wrote: I have a 2006 Honda Element EX which just hit 130K miles today as I rolled into the Honda dealer for another oil change. The car runs just as good today as it did the day I bought it. I hope to double that mileage before I even think about letting go of my Element.
08/27/10 - Eliot wrote: I have a 1999 Honda CR-V that I bought new and is about to turn over to 174,000 miles. I do dealer oil changes every 3,000 miles and just had the rear diff fluid changed at the last service. Getting ready to do another timing belt soon, but other than regularly scheduled maintenance the CR-V is a beast and the real time AWD gets the win for me.
08/25/10 - Bill wrote: I have a 1998 Accord LX, which I drove off the dealer lot in Sept of 1997. The car now has 310,000 miles. Regular oil changes, brakes every few years.... still runs great In an interview with CNBC, Borro founder http://www.attrinity.com/ Paul Aitken explained that his service caters to the upper 5% to 10% of the population including replica hublot big bang business owners and entrepreneurs. ¡°They need liquidity quickly, they¡¯ve probably got regular cash flows replica breitling navitimer, so more traditional forms of lending aren¡¯t an option, so they fall into asset-backed lending.¡±
08/23/10 - Steve wrote: I have a 1996 Acura Integra GSR with 303,137 miles Original engine and transmission, have replaced timing belt 3x and clutch once.
08/21/10 - Steve wrote: I have a 1991 Honda CRX HF. Bought used with 150,000 miles. Now has 257,000 miles. Replaced seats, shocks, brakes, timing belt, and fixed the rust out areas around gas filler and rear wheels. Also replaced muffler with a stainless steel system. I drive to Florida every year and it sure is nice getting 55 MPG and often more if I draft behind a truck. Following trucks once got me 752 miles on my 12 gallon tank on a trip down to Florida. I love my CRX HF! I used to have a 1990 Honda Civic SI which had over 500,000 miles on it. Bought it new. Traded it in for another Civic that got stolen. The stolen car had 175,000 miles on it. As you can see... I love Hondas!
08/16/10 - Nicole wrote: Have a 1992 Honda Accord, with about 394,000 miles. I've had this car for five years, my aunt purchased it new 18 years ago. Car still runs great.
08/13/10 - Courtney wrote: I have a 1994 Honda Accord, that I purchased at auction for $3000 in 2003. It has 197,900 miles on it now. Besides regular oil changes I have only replaced the main relay that I did myself thanks to online web sites. I love my Honda and will drive her till she won't go anymore!
08/13/10 - Ken wrote: 1999 CRV LX 2-wheel drive. Bought with over 200k, Now has 637,000 miles and drives excellent! Going to take it to a million!
08/12/10 - Scott wrote: 2005 CR-V. Bought it in 2006 with 25,000 miles on it. Currently have 120,000 miles. No major problems. Had the brakes replaced, other than that runs great. Still gets 33 mpg on the highway.
08/11/10 - Jack wrote: My 2001 Acura MDX now has 247,000 miles with no major repairs... still runs extremely well, and we will keep going.
08/11/10 - Joel wrote: I own a '92 Accord EX. I bought this vehicle in '94 while stationed in Grand Forks, ND. I've driven it all over the eastern half of the US and southwestern Ontario (Canada, eh!). Two days ago I tripped 350,000 miles on the original motor, clutch and transmission. Aside from normal maintenance (fluids, belts, filters) I've done tires, a battery and a ball joint/tie rods on it. This vehicle has seen 3 cold years in ND, 5 cookers in GA and LA and then endured the salt and horrible highway system of MI and Ontario. Living in Ontario and commuting to MI to work (the heart of UAW country), I see numerous "Out of job yet? Keep buying foreign." bumper stickers. All I can think is "When GM, Ford and Chrysler can build something that WILL get me this far, maybe I'll reconsider. Until then? I guess I'll keep burning rice!! Thanks Honda.
08/3/10 - Jim wrote: I own a 1986 Honda accord LXI 2 door hatchback, 5 speed, with air conditioning. 186,000 miles. The body is perfect. Ive been building the car back up! Is this car a Classic?? (We think so!)
08/1/10 - Tim wrote: Have a 2000 Honda Civic LX, bought it new 31 Aug 2000. Had 35 miles on the odometer then - 319,000 now. Some major repairs but all in all less than a new car. Timing belt every 100,000 miles and oil and filter changes every 6,000 miles. Mobil full synthetic 5W-30 or 0W-30. Major repairs- 4 timing belts; clutch at 280,000 with one of the timing belts and rear main oil seal. Head gasket and one timing belt at 308,000 miles. The head gasket was blown between cylinders - going through a gallon of water to drive 20 miles and water dripping into the #1 cylinder was the final clue. I was only getting 32 miles to the gallon during this episode. I'm back up to 36-40 depending on the trip length and ac use. Had to replace the catalytic converter because I cracked it at the O2 sensor port by spraying the engine off. It still runs very nice. I'll be shooting for the 700K plus miles. $16,000 for the car new and $4,500 dollars for repairs over the 5 years it has been paid for to keep it running.
07/30/10 - Holly wrote: My 1993 Civic DX is just a baby compared to many of the cars listed here; only has 246,000 miles on it. I bought it for $700 in 2003 from my mother-in-law who wanted to buy a Civic Hybrid. My father in law now owns an Insight. It did need the engine light reset at the time (I forget what the tiny cheap problem turned out to be). I did have issues with it not starting when it was hot - turned out it needed a new $14 temp gauge - it thought it was overheating. It needed new head gaskets last year. This year for its 17th bithday I just treated it to an $1,100 facial (body shop for the rust that appeared this year, and a new paint job in Stellar Pearl Blue to cover the faded & dull prior navy paint.) I got the nicer paint job with the 4 year warranty because I plan on keeping this car for as long as I can!
07/23/10 - Nick wrote: Bought a brand-new 1997 Honda Civic in Dec '96 with my Dad and to date we've put on 205,000 miles. Didn't even replace the muffler until 180K! It's the best car we've ever owned and still keep it around even though my Dad bought a new commuter car in '07... a 2007 Honda Accord which we've got up to 70,000 miles already. Also have a 2001 Odyssey, with 130,000 miles. Had to replace the tranny at 125K lthough. Nothing beats our Civic.
