Default How many miles do you have on your honda accord?

I have 200,100 and am worried about the life left.

"I have 200,100 and am worried about the life left."

And where did you read in the manual that your odometer is a "life gauge"?

Miles tell you how far the car has gone. That's all. NOTHING ELSE.

If you keep maintaining it, it will last well over 1 million miles. There are people driving cars around with 2 and 3 million miles on them.


So, if you've taken care of your car, it has plenty of life left.

If you haven't, it doesn't.

But watching the odometer isn't going to tell you which situation you are in.

Want a stupid simple way to explain this?

Go walk 5 miles. At the end of it, are you worried about how much life you have left?

If not, then why do you think it would be any different for a car?

Neither you, nor the car, will miraculously fall apart after travelling a certain distance.

Health determines how far you can go. How far you have gone, does not determine health. In a car, or a person.

Almost 95,000 on a 2001 accord.

Just maintain it well and it well run well.

I ignored the fact that it was overheating and i kept running it because i thought i could just add more coolant but then it just stopped running.

It had a blown head gasket and the engine had water/coolant running through it.

$1,500 later lesson learned. So don't ignore your cars needs!
