Default How Long Will a Honda Civic last?

My Pontiac broke down this weekend and I'm looking to buy a 2005 Honda Civic VP sedan. I really like the car but the only thing that worries me is that is has 190k miles on it which is more than what my old car had when it died. I know a Honda will last a lot longer than a Pontiac but I need to make sure this car will last at least 3 more years perferably 5+ years.

There is also an 2001 Honda Civic LX sedan I'm looking at with only 90k miles on it but its 4 years older and I've read reviews that say that the 2001 Civics have serious transmission problems and if buying a used one you should see if it's already had the trasnmission changed. I checked the carfax and asked the dealer and it has NOT had it changed and I really cant afford to replace it a year or 2 after buying this car.

They suck because if the transmission. A junkyard will sell you a replacement for $700 but it risky too. thats if all the Ricers didn't snatch em all up first

I had old civic years ago that had 350,000 miles on it. It was like a 1980's something. But I have heard of civics getting 3-5 hundred thousand or more miles.

It depends on how well the cars have been taken care of, the high mileage one is probably highway miles. Also depends on how many miles you drive now, if you drive a lot of miles I'd go with the lower milaged one.
