4 cylinder integra, yes one at 200k one at 240k.... if the maintenance is done at regular intervals it is possible.would I buy a used car with this mileage? only if my mechanic looked over the car and the maintenance records from day one.

acuras are hondas so that means reliability. my dad had a 89 integra ls and we just swapped the engine it had a tick over 310,000 miles. only problem was the distributor shaft and thats usual thing that goes on these engines. and amazingly if you keep it clean it will run longer(gunk on belt puts resistance to the belts and decrease reliabiltity. and maintanance is the number one key that alone will make it run dang near forever. but when reality hits every engine will die sooner or later but taking care of it will make it last its longest

This is slightly OT, but I had an Acura for 14 years and 160,000 miles. Not your question exactly, but it does shed light a different way - low miles == short trips. This is hard a different way on cars. It ran fine, I was confident it would run way over 200k if I kept it.
