With proper maintenance and care, driving conditions your car should last 5-20 years and get several hundred thousand miles out of it.

Maintain it properly and that bad boy will go 200,000 miles easy . Probably more. Drive it like a little old man and you'll save enough in gas and parts to buy whatever you want in 5 years.

Well, honda is on par toyota in reliability, if you take good care of it, it should last 150,000 miles, even more if you take really good care of it.

The MOST important thing is regular and frequent oil changes for the engine and other fluid systems also - transmission, brakes, coolant.

Use synthetic oil, which is superior to dino oil.
