Default Accord: Reliable Honda Drives Owner to Nearly One Million Miles

Joe of Norway, Maine is anything but average. While the typical driver clocks about 14,000 miles per year, Joe does that in about three months. Joe's 1990 Honda Accord has taken him nearly 1 million miles over the past 15 years, a feat that speaks to the reliability of his Honda as well as the dedication of its driver to reach this unique milestone. As Joe approaches the one million mile mark this fall, Honda fans can follow his journey on the Honda brand Facebook page starting today with an introductory video.


Joe's million mile journey is a showcase for the reliability of Honda automobiles, a quality that has been a part of the automaker's DNA for over 50 years. Joe's model, the Accord, continues to lead industry reliability rankings and recently was named Best Resale Value in its class by Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com. Additionally, the Accord has been named to the prestigious Car and Driver 10Best list a record 25 times.


"Joe's journey is a testament to his Honda's reliability and how people have come to count on Honda for more than 50 years to get them to where they need to go," said Tom Peyton, Honda brand manager for American Honda Motor Co., Inc.


Honda wanted to tell Joe's story because of his astonishing driving habits and detailed record keeping. Joe drives an average of 62,500 miles a year and began keeping detailed records at around 300,000 miles. Joe has taken more than 661 photos of his odometer. Joe's dedication to his Accord is known throughout the small town in Maine were he resides.


New content featuring Joe's pursuit toward hitting 1 million miles will be featured on Honda's Facebook page throughout the summer. Joe is expected to cross the 1 million mark in September.
