Yes, there's no reason it shouldn't. I have a Civic with over 280,000 miles on it and it has no real problems.

yes thats not as far as you think, give it an oil change, make sure its tuned up, personally I would ask my mechanic to inspect the vehicle and tell him you are taking about a 1,500 mile round trip, look it over and give me a call and let me know if you find any issues that need attention. Keep in mind, that stop and go driving where you live, is far worse on a car than a nice easy cruise, the freeway will be easy on your car compared to stop and go traffic, so as long as the timing belt or chain hods together and you keep gas, oil and coolant in the car it should be just fine. Use a good grade of gas, like chevron with techron, this will keep the fuel injection clean, the car will run great if you stick some super unleaded in it and get on the freeway, have fun.
