Default Do you think a Honda with 160k miles on it would be reliable?

It is a 1998 Honda Civic, the mileage seems really high to me though I know these cars resell very well.Yeah, the woman said that she has never done anything major to it, besides changing the tires and oilSo as soon as I get it....the engine and transmission will go

It depends how the car was treated.If it is heavily modified, probably not.If it is seriously neglected, as many Hondas are, possibly.If it was well-maintained, then definitely yes.

160k is a lot for a 1998. It is a honda so it is a lot better than an american car, the mileage isnt a complete disaster for it but still has way too many miles for a '98. it's like 60,000 miles over what it should be for that year.

16k miles per year seems about average to me.
