So as the title says I'm wanting to start an R18 High Mileage club. Unless the Mods decide to merge this with the SI High Mileage Club. Basically I'm in the military and I just transferred to TX where I will have a 180 miles commute round trip 4-5 days a week. This is going to be a way to track monthly mileage and reliability of the non-SI platform. I have a 2014 LX sedan with the CVT. Currently I have 20,656 miles on it and will start racking up the miles on Monday June 12th. I will update my mileage at the end of every month. If I can figure out how to post a pic I will, but photo bucket has been messed up for the last several months and won't let me share my pics.

2014 Sedan LX CVT, 20,656 miles.

Well, if the exclusionary Si guys ;) have their own High Mileage Club, why not one for the R18?! Have at it! :thumb:

Well I'm glad it's been holding up relatively well. I just read on the Accord forum that a guy just traded his 2013 Accord LX CVT with 206,000 miles and never had an issue. There are also a bunch of high mileage Accords with CVT's that haven't had any issues. So, I think we're going to be alright with the CVT which was my biggest worry.

2013 Civic EX w Auto not the CVT just reached 55k miles. I do 60 miles round-trip 5 days a week. I've actually been thinking about getting a beater now that the Civic is paid off to try and keep the miles down if possible.
Not too bad at all. I've seen a 2012 with the AT that had over 200K miles on this forum.

400K is the new 100K. It's mostly how you take care of the car but definitely not everything. I have a mechanic friend that works only on Jap cars that said he's busier than ever before due to replacing CVT belts early on every make. He hired a mechanic to do nothing but that. That speaks for itself. A Honda is a cheap car to buy. My dealer said he sees 600K mile and up Civic's every week. Why worry about miles? Just save a little money every month and pay cash for the next car (oh, that means I can't mod it thus ruining the longevity and resale). Except for the transmission (conventional), just follow book maintenance and at a million miles or so just tow it away and get another one. I predict the DI and turbo cars will fail sooner than the NA cars. It's been going on with Ford from the get go. But that's Ford.....a throw away car. Do the math and see how long it will take you to get to a million miles. With today's oils changed on time, it can and does happen.

I'm definitely not going to keep it that long. I'm just planning to keep it until about 200K and then sell it and buy a Pilot. With the amount of Accord's with CVT and 150K+ miles, I think it will be easy to obtain in the Civic.

Well between being out of state for a couple weeks for work and evacuating for Hurricane Harvey I didn't rack up a lot of miles this month. My end of month mileage is 26,895.

i'm trying to conserve mileage now...driving the non-gas sipping 4.3L sonoma once or twice a week now.

i'm going to be over 100K before it's paid for! and i'm trying to hold out until Honda puts the 1.5t in the HR-V for a replacement to the civic. if i am forced to replace prior to upgrading the HR-V, probably be a 2018 hatch.
