Default How long do Honda Civics/Accords last?

I hear they are great first vehicles.. I'm looking into buying one. What are the differences between civics and accords?

Properly cared for a Honda will last 200,000 miles. I have seen them with twice that mileage on them!The difference, really, is not much more than size. The Accord used to be more luxurious, the Civic more spartan and bare-bones. But these days they are both very nice.

I have currently own a 2002 civic ex, its the loaded sporty model with a/c, cruise, power lock/widnows, sunroof, cd player. it has 114,000 miles on it and still does not use a drop of oil between changes. I get 35-40 MPG highway driving and around 30 city.I changed all the belts every 50,000 and oil every 5,000 and everything else as recomended. it rides great and hold up so well! They have been getting bigger every new model Ithink the 02 is a good sized compact car. The accord is also I great car, bigger family sedan style car with more options and luxuries avalible. if you are looking for a more compact sporty style car, look at the civic, if you need a sedan with more family food and options then look at the accord. either way you can't go wrong with any honda

Major difference of current models (besides size) is the safety structure of the new Civics. The ACE body deforms on impact in a way that protects the driver and the object it hits. It also is supposed to be less injurious to pedestrian impacts. Friend with a 2007 Civic just hit head-on a large truck driven by a DUI. The Civic protected her. My 1988 Civic ran almost 300k before I sold it. You won't regret buying a Civic.But I love my 1997 Accord EX Coupe. It's fixing to turn over 250k and has been bulletproof - I've owned it longer than any other car I've had. No major problems, lots of power, 30mpg at 80 mph on the highway. Hey, I live in Atlanta. I plan to keep it forever. Wife's 1999 Accord (her third) is similarly good at 140k. You won't regret buying an Accord.
