I own a 1997 Honda Civic with over 380000 miles on the od. It runs like a top. I don't think I could ever part with it. I love my Honda.

They are very good and gas friendly vehicles. One thing you want to do is look underneath the car and make sure there r no leaks. Take it for a test drive and check it once again. You can also go to eBay motors do a search for the model and year u r looking at, they give you quite a bit of info.

I sold my first honda with over 250,000 miles on it a few years ago, and last I heard, it is still running!They go forever, especially if they're well taken care of. Make sure belts, clutch, and any expensive repairs have been replaced or taken care of, aside from that, you should be fine. A lot of people joke that 100k is the break-in period for a honda.

All cars made after 2000 can last 200,000 miles.100,000 miles is nothing. That is considered middle age for all cars.Honda's old and new can last 300,000 miles easily.If you take care of them and maintain them properly, then they can last forever.People who get rid of Honda's only get rid of them because they get bored of having the same car for that many years.The Honda Accord holds the title for most reliable car in the world.Ever since the first Vtec engine Honda made in the early 90's, there has never been a Honda engine that died.

Effin:

Welcome to the wondrous world of Honda. While there may be plenty of cars out there with more horsepower, you'll find very few that are as well built as a Honda. Fit and finish, namely the attention to detail in body panels, interior and in particular their amazing reputation for their engines, is almost second to none.

The engines are assembled with such precision and accuracy, that they last a very long time, so much so that I would gladly endorse their product anytime, and as other members have indicated, with careful regular maintenance, like oil changes, timing belts, water pumps, plugs and ignition wires changed at specified intervals you'll be amazed at the miles or kilometers you can put on these amazing cars. 300,000 is quite feasible.

junk.get an American car. My old 1994 Ford Crown Vic had 280,000 miles when i sold andmy current car is a 27 year old full size GM model with 150,000 miles and still runs like new, original engine, never needed any internal engine repairs. Rebuilt the transmission last summer only as preventative maintenance. Additionally, the car is 99% RUST FREE. Hondas rust after about 10 years. That's why you see all kinds of American cars 20+ years old on the road, while the oldest Honda you typically see these days is 1992.my dad bought a brand new 1990 Ford wagon in 1990 (duh) and sold it last year with 220,000 miles on it.My mom currently drives a 1996 Cadillac with 150,000 milesAll cars have been extremely reliable and trouble free.ALSO theres a Taxi company in Syosset, Long Island that runs their Ford Crown Victorias up to 800,000+ miles.

AutoOnInfo.net offers a roster of 300,000+ mile vehicles at http://www.AutoOnInfo.net/RosterOf30...leVehicles.htm . Many of the contributors have offered their email addresses, so you may contact them to make enquiries about their experiences. Also available on the web page is a statistical summary by manufacturer. By the data from this roster, Honda's longevity is usually second only to that of Toyota Motor Corporation. By Consumer Reports' list of Good Bets for the Long Run, Honda places second only to Toyota as well. (See "Toyota and Honda Account for All of Consumer Reports' 2007 Long-Run Good Bets," at http://www.AutoOnInfo.net/NAEd200709...unGoodBets.htm .) In addition, this site offers 13 pages of durability information, accessible from http://www.AutoOnInfo.net/AutoonInfo...onMenuPage.htm .A shortcoming of Hondas appears to be their transmissions. See "The 2008 Reliability-Durability Updates: The Best and Worst Automobiles by Transmission Reliability: Toyota Dominates Best Transmissions, GM and Chrysler Dominate Worst Transmissions," at http://www.autooninfo.net//NAEd20080...nsmissions.htm .
