Very cool indeed. Thanks for sharing!Nope they traded it in on another Honda Accord. The owner, Mr Gunn was amazed and bought it and put it on display. I had an engine bay shot but can't find it. I believe it was back in the 10W30 days. Pretty cool IMO.
LOL. After 500 K, 50 mpg? That's crazy!!!I met a guy at a Honda dealership who says his 1996 Civic HX has 500k on it. He said it's been nothing but routine maintenance and he still gets 50 MPGs. I was like, what the what the what the! I'd love to have that Civic. Of course I'd probably trash it in a week trying to redline it.
Congrats on your SI's 1 year mark anniversary. I am more than confident your SI will go past 200,000 and way beyond that if you choose to keep her and take care of her.On April 27 was my 2013 Civic Si Sedan's 1 year anniversary and clocked 28K miles, primarily hwy miles. Today I sit at 35850 miles. Crazy how I can easily average 28-30K miles a year. It'll be at 100K within the next 2-3 years. Car is still running strong!!!
You know Scotty, I see those older generation Civics also all over the place and I'm sure they have to have high milage. I wish I can talk to some of those people now and then and take a few pics of their car and odometer without being too creepy. I'll bet some of those high milage cars have broken odometers and have stopped working well past 300,000 miles and the owners have no idea how many original miles they have.I must have seen five or six 7th gen Civic sedans on my 20 mile commute this morning. Those are cars that are from 2005 and older.
I don't know that they have 200k miles on them, but that's a lot of older cars of one particular model, a testament to their longevity.
I did just that Sunday to a gal next to me at a stop light. Her Civic was four years old, looked brand new, and she said it had 109,000 miles on it. She said her father's Odessey had 250000 miles on it and ran perfect.Don't think I haven't thought about pulling up next to one of those cars, doing the old 'roll down the window' motion , and asking about total mileage. But I don't.
Agreed! However that's only half of the equation. It's also obvious that a major contributor to longevity of a car is how well engineered and the level of quality goes into the manufacturing of the car.I did just that Sunday to a gal next to me at a stop light.

Lots of cars are running around with 300,000 miles on them. About a year ago an Accord made the million mile mark somewhere with harsh climate. Just take care of the damned thing and drive it like a civilized person with intelligence and most cars will last longer than you want them.
