Default Is 65K miles a lot for my 07 accord coupe?

I bought it used in 09 with 36K miles. Now it's at 65K. Debating if I should take it on a road trip July 4th but I'm feeling a bit guilty.

No not at all. The average american drives 10-12,000 miles a yr when they own one car. Your right there on the average. Take it on the road trip if it makes things easier and cheaper for you.

If its a Honda it should be just getting broken in @65K. Get the engine tuned and oil changed and it should take you around the world a couple of times.

Dont feel guilty. The average American daily driver drives over 12,000 miles a day, so you're fine. It seems to me that you should take the road trip. =)

yeah it's in good shape, "only" if you keep it maintained with regular oil changes... if it's a 4 cylinder timing belt, idler pulley & water pump change is coming up soon which is not cheap but something to look into before 100kmiles racks up on the odo.

Wow! That is way to much! You should sell that car and buy an American one. Japan is a small country, so they designed engines to work for only small distances. If you want a road trip car, a Chevy Caviler with 100k miles is a good bet. It was designed for the long distances of the U.S., and a 100k miles shows that it has worked all the kinks out.

You just need to check your wheels and minor oils (break, engines, ets.) filters and you are ready to go. I had one which I bought in 06 done 55K and went on a road trip finishing in 3 months and the car did 81K mils by then and it is still running fine.
