    I had a 1990 Acura Integra that I owned from new and put 280000 KMs on her myself. Engine was stock and still going strong when I sold her. A few longer trips here and there but other than that mostly city driven.

Now my '13 Si is already at 57k.

    Had an '86 rx-7 in the mix that I bought at 180k and made it to 240k before motor seized. I beat the crap out of that thing daily. Was original motor.
    Awesome.

    From what I have seen and read so far, I'm proud to own Honda and I'm even that more happier that if I maintain my 9th gen Civic SI and my wife's 2013 LX Civic, we will get the most value out if out purchase and really enjoy both cars.
    I have to add a special note that since I had fun as a teen driving my dad's 1978 Chevy Nova V8 with a 350 block dual carb car, I really never thought that a tiny Civic SI front wheel drive would come close to that feeling I once had when your heart thumped hard, you started to breath harder and you have a smile of satisfaction.
    You know that feeling people. The Whroom roar of the engine and that acceleration... Wow.
    With the Civic SI it's that VTec opening up and that tinny racing sound she makes before the additional surge if power. 😃. I love it.
    Though I lived my Chevy Nova, all O remembered was constantly maintaining her. Points, rotors, distributor caps, plugs.. You know tune ups all the time. Not so with these new 9 th gen Civics. Almost self tuning cars. LOL.

    I don't have any pictures of the '96 ex I drove for about 30k miles, but I loved the car. I think I just crossed the 200k mark when I bought my Si and my brother put another 12k on it I think before we sold it for near what we got it. If I can find a pic of the odometer I'll post it but the car was damn near indestructible. I have a friend who's neon barely made it to 100k and another who's taurus burns more oil than fuel and is worth more in scrap metal. The car did make it past 200k but it sure as hell limped to that point

    We would live that pic if you can find it. However your personal testimonial is just as important. Thank you!

    Cars that are driven mostly highway miles tend to last longer than mostly city driven cars because highway miles are effortless compared to city miles. The motors is less stressed sans all the stop and go, and the drive-train is less stressed, as highways tend to be smoother than city streets.

    That must've been an original Nova, not the rebadged subcompact that came out in the '80s.

    I've had a few cars and bikes that required all that maintenance. I never looked at it as a headache, though. I enjoyed doing that work. Using a timing light was actually fun.

    Original Chevy Nova for sure. Purchased brand new by my Dad. He really took good care of her until I turned 16 and got my driving permit. When I got my license, he gave me the car keys and said it was mine.
    Those memories brings back good times I remembered of my Dad (God bless him and rest his soul in heaven). Happy Father's Day Dad and to all the Dads out there.
