05/12/12 - Peter wrote: I am the original owner of 1990 Acura Integra GS. I brought the car right out of college since I needed a reliable commuter. I drove the car for one year and my wife drove for the next 12 years. After she brought her Lexus ES300, I re-united with my baby. I have been driving for the last 10 years with her. She has 295,000 miles and will cross 300k in about 4 months. The only major component I've had to replace is the transmission around 225k. It was a known issue with this automatic model. When the car is cold, it will not shift gear between 1st and 2nd gear. I spent $1000 and installed a low mileage transmission from Japan. Instead of a GS transmission, they got me a GS-R transmission. I figure, the more letters, the better the transmission.

04/24/12 - Tammie wrote: I am the original owner of a 2000 Honda Civic EX - it is the best car I have ever owned. It has 295,500 and is still going strong. Oil changes and regular maitenance. Honda can't be beat.
04/15/12 - Matt wrote: I have a 1992 Honda Accord which just turned 470,000 on Friday April 13th, go figure. The only things I have replaced are the radiator, because the dealer broke it during a repair, and the clutch. Brakes and regular maintence do a lot for these cars.
04/14/12 - Bruce wrote: I own a 1988 Honda Civic that I bought for $700 cash almost two years ago. At the time, it had 269,000 miles on it and I thought, OK, let's see if the stories are true about these reliable cars. It is a 5 speed. I'm pleased to tell you the only expense out of the norm was to replace the head gasket last weekend (mechanic was pretty sure it was the original!) for a paltry $84 bucks and I just turned the odometer to 331,789 at the end of my commute today. I used this little miracle for sales driving the last two years, many days averaging 150+ miles per day and my mileage combined averaged 30-32 mpg. I change the oil every 3-4 thousand miles and it just keeps on running. Amazing! I call it my miracle car because we had some pretty tough financial times and it was one of the only things that didn't break down! I need it to go another year and I'm projecting at least 375,000 when I may consider retiring it for another car - you can bet it will be another Honda!
04/12/12 - Brett wrote: I have a 1995 Honda Civic LX with 345,092 miles. The car still runs and drives like a dream. This car use to be owned by my grandfather who drove about 200 miles a day.
04/5/12 - Eddie wrote: My 2002 Acura RSX-S, purchased new in January of 2003, and just ticked over 285k miles. The story is a familiar one to you: highway miles, regular oil changes (I do my own), does not use oil (Castrol from the get-go), 3rd set of tires (Michelins now), hardware has been problematic (liftback latch and power window problems, the blower fan just gave out, have not missed it, yet), internals have not been touched, garaged, Eibach coil overs (mostly done for the stance issue), adult driven (I am on Medicare, nuff said and, despite my vanity plates, driven sedately indeed). Photo taken on a trip to South Dakota.
04/5/12 - Adriaan wrote: I have a 2000 Acura EL with 280 000 KM. It now burns half a liter of oil between oil changes but with the price of gas and low cost of maintenance I am gonna run this car until it quits!
03/28/12 - Kevin wrote: I bought my 5 speed Honda Accord EX right out of the show room in 1998 and have had it ever since. The car now has 333,000 miles on it, and I continue to drive it weekly from Boston the New York city for work. The car has never failed me over the past 14 years, and it has the original motor, transmition and exhaust system. I just replaced an O2 sensor and evap valves in order to pass emmisions and get my inspection sticker. The only issues I have had are recently with replacement of ball joints. I attribute this to after market part quality; other than that, I get 31 miles per gallon and just cannot give her up. The paint is wearing off as is typical of older Hondas, but to me, she is one of a kind; I am told the 98 model is one of the best ever from Honda and it is going to be a classic.
03/26/12 - Steven wrote: I have a 91 Honda Civic hatchback with 337k miles and going.
03/25/12 - Francisco wrote: have a Honda Civic 00 EX with 257,000 miles which I use for work day 5 days a week. I work for a delivery company, and when my Honda hit 150,000 miles I switched to full synthetic 1040 mobil 1 motor oil. I have changed the timing belt and all other belts ,clutch, done a full tune up evry 6 months but oil change every 5,000 miles. Still runs strong looking forward to break a record if there is one, my goal is to drive my Honda for over 400,000 miles oh and I got my Honda when it had only 60,000 miles. So get a Honda it's worth it.
03/25/12 - Jack wrote: I have a '94 Accord EX Wagon that just turned over 531,000 miles. I put about 1,500 miles a week on old "Grandma" as we call her and she is still very dependable. I've had very few problems with her just the regular maintenance. I change the oil myself every 7,000 miles and use Mobil 1. I plan on driving her to at least 1,000,000 miles and maybe more. Our family has owned 14 Hondas since our first in 1983. I'll never have anything else.
03/23/12 - Jonathan wrote: I am currently driving a 2005 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan with the 5sp. manual transmission. It currently has approximately 249,000 miles and still going strong. I have NEVER replaced the clutch. Repairs on it include: Passanger side CV Joint, Lower control arm, and bushings. Regular oil changes and tire rotation. Body has been touched up a few times. Other than that, it runs great! Current issues: Cruise Control not working and driver side reclining power switch is not working.
03/22/12 - Robin wrote: I have a 2001 Honda Accord the mileage is 322,404. I have put every mile on there. I had the air bag recall taken care of the other day and Honda called me to tell me they had 1.9% interest on a new Accord. She asked if I was in the market for one. I told her I was trying to see how many miles I can put on it. Time for another timing belt... I think it is awesome, never had a car orologi replica italia with high mileage. I put almost 100 miles a day to and from work.
03/22/12 - Kyra wrote: My 2000 Honda CRV has 226K on it and still running smooth... get oil changes every 3K miles and whatever it needs according to someone that I trust to tell me.... No big problems so far... I can't afford another car so I hope it lasts me forever!!! The inside looks brand new. I like the little red flashing auto theft light inside. It helps scare off potential car jackers. I take excellent care of everything that I own and so glad that Honda makes great vehicles!
03/21/12 - Rich wrote: Just turned the 100K mark on our 2008 Honda Accord EX. The car runs like a top no problems at all. We keep up on all the service and only use Honda OEM parts. The 2004 Civic the wife drives has 80K and is in show room condition. Both of the cars were purchsed new.
03/21/12 - Tammy wrote: I have a 1991 Honda Civic DX with a 5 speed manual transmission. I bought it with 140k about 5 years ago and it continues to get great mpg even now at 269k!
03/21/12 - Robin wrote: My beautiful 1998 black Honda Civic just hit the 200,000 mile mark. Her name is Cassandra, named after Wayne's girlfriend in Wayne's World. I am in love with my Honda and so proud of her for her many years of dependable (and in my opinion, stylish) service.
03/20/12 - Krista wrote: I have a 2001 TL with 247,000 miles. I have replaced the stearing rack, 1 ball joint, 1 timing belt, bought new head lamps, had insurance cover a new windshield. Doesn't burn oil, everything works except for the LCD clock backlight burned out. Went through several sets of warped rotars until Monro Brakes finally fixed them properly... car runs great.. no car payment, don't want one, and will drive this car til the wheels fall off.
03/18/12 - David wrote: I have a 1998 Accord 5-spd 4cyl VTEC with 282,600 miles. Daily driver. Interior still in great shape. Lowered 1/2 in and rides on 17 inch custom rims. Average 29-32 mpg in mixed driving. I'm not easy on it. Still like the growl over 3k RPM. Has an AEM cold air intake. Change the oil every 5k miles with Mobil Synthetic. Religious about the 30k mile service. Replaced an axle, a CV boot and the gas evap canister around 212,000. Replaced the EGR valve at 250,000. Trying to find a new used car but can't replace this reliability. Paint is now beginning to peel on the roof and trunk and hood, but the car just runs great. 5-spd is the way to go with this model Accord. Had a 99 but the auto tranny left us stranded. Common with automatics. Manual is so much more fun. Great car. Great ride. Cheap to buy used and very inexpensive to keep up. Recommend replacing with OEM parts only. Go Honda.
03/17/12 - Jun wrote: We have 2006 Honda Accord EX-L with approximately 236,000 miles! Replaced the ball joints recently and still running like new.
03/15/12 - Jan wrote: I bought my 1999 Honda Accord V6 Coupe new and nearly totaled it 6 months later. Listened to every skeptic tell me it would never be the same. Three months and an extraordinary rebuild job by a Honda certified autobody shop later, I drove my "born again" baby home and have been driving it ever since. About to hit the 200,000 mile mark this weekend and it still looks and runs great. Hope to keep this love affair alive for many miles to come.
03/5/12 - Kelly wrote: I'm thinking of putting vinyl numbers on the back windshield reporting to passersby the mileage of my old friend, a 91 Civic DX hatchback with 336,000 miles . I bought it brand new and watched an acorn fall onto the hood creating its first dent. Funny little acorn. Should have kept it. But I had no idea I'd be sitting in the driver's seat for 21 years. Now we are shooting for 400,000.
03/1/12 - Warren wrote: I have a 2002 Honda Si with 250,000 miles. I bought it new and its my everyday transportation. It has the original engine and clutch, only minor repairs. It is very dependable, never letting me down. It is white - the paint is still looking great and has no rust even though it is parked outside. A/C still blows cold air, the only misadventure it has experienced was when I hit a deer at 240,000 miles. The insurance company must think highly of Honda's because they fixed the damage instead of totaling it.
