Default What is the average lifetime miles for a 1997 Acura CL 2.2?

I'm looking at a car that has 180,000 miles on it and I would like to know if thats too high or if the engine is still good for a liitle while longer. I dont know much about cars so any info would be helpful.

Depends of the owner's TLC. If he treated nicely it could last you a couple of more years.

There are many cars with good maintanance that will last into the 300,000 miles and 400,000 miles. Tha biggest things that you will need to have done are making sure your oil changes are on time. Get your timing belt changed at the reccomended intervals, get regular tune-ups and get your maintenance done at the dealer. A small investment that will pay off!

if you don't know much about cars you should get a newer car. No matter how reliable the car is, there will be parts that wear out and fair as the car gets old.If you don't know anything about cars you won't be able to pick up on the early warning signs of part failure and you will likely get stuck with a lot of expensive repair bills

Until a month ago, my father owned one such car. From what I can tell you, it is very reliable, though around 100,000 miles, transmission will take a turn for the worse, as will a few other systems. If the car looks okay, drives okay (no clanking, shaking), it should be just fine. You might also want to check out carfax or something like that. Anyways, it should be around 2000 dollars...
