    Bought my "baby" in February 2013. Its a 2010 Accord EX-L. Had 30K miles. In the last 17 months I put 60K miles on it. Runs awesome. Everything works. Great car!

    200,000 more and I'll finally sell it....maybe!

    Real nice. Hope it keeps treating you well.


    This one little bug I don’t think will make it to 200k.....but poor inattentive driving skills didn’t help it.....just happened an hour ago lady smoked the concrete apron after cutting off another driver entering our parking lot....that is oil, not coolant.

    Where in the hell are you going? Maybe you ought to move there and stay put for a bit!:D

    LOL, my 2006 TL just flipped 124k. It's still on the original AC charge. I want a new car SO BAD (A Tesla, maybe I've mentioned it...), but I have no reason, and no business, spending any loot on a car right now. We just got payment free in the spring, I need to ride that for a couple of years.

    Actually, I'm just a few miles from the Z28 being the lowest mileage car we own-
    2012 MDX- 97600
    1980 Z28- 99200 (actual)
    2009 TSX (daugther's)- 117000
    2006 TL- 124000

    We're adding a 2009 Honda Pilot next week for the low price of $1... but it's got 270k on it- belonged to a realtor before our friends, who are selling it to us mainly to be able to see how long it lasts. It's got oil eating and trans shifting issues, but I'm sure we'll eke out a few years of my son's 5 mile commutes, when he starts driving in the spring.

    I've driven my 68 camaro almost 200k in the last 18 years. It would be well over that, but have to divide my time between the 68 firebird, 71 camaro, 72 elcamino, and the 73 type LT. All are great cars that are ready to drive wherever you want.

    Since I moved to New Smyrna Beach in 2013, I'd drive to New York and back 1-2 times a year. But I can't sit still. For example, that's the reason I put the 60K in 17 months. I'm in the apartment, bored as hell, so I go for a ride.

    I have 3 vehicles. My Accord, my Camaro - 72 K and my 2001 Dyna Wide Glide - 18K. Bought that new. Approximately 2500 miles on the HD came from going to the HD 100th Anniversary.

    My 2013 Scion tC, has 162k miles on it now I bought it with 2 miles on it (I ordered it)

    I’ve literally done nothing except oil every 10k and brakes/rotors pads/wheels every 80k together, did a big service at 100k all fluids, brake fluid, coolant, plugs etc.

    Original clutch, feels like new. But I will say after owning mustang I’ve began to resent getting in it, feels like driving a dump truck in comparison.

    Love it though, winter dd til it dies.

    Glad you’ve had such goodluck! We put on some miles don’t we?

    1982 Ford Mustang carbureted 200" Inline 6 with C5 transmission. 27 MPG and puled many trailers and boats.
    No parts except brake pads air and oil filters and fuel filter for 300,000 miles then the mechanical fuel pump went out. I kept the original spark plugs in it for the entire time I had the car 376,000 miles Just clean and gap.
    Family owned and we (wife and I) got it in 1986.
    Glad you made 200,000 and you are right 200,000 more and you will be set.

    I have a 1995 Corolla, I am at 326,000 now and trying to beat the Ford.
    Most I have seen was a friends 1999 Corolla with 850,000 miles. He is a driving instructor and used that car for that purpose.
    Lots of city miles..He wanted to get 1 million miles but one of his students that had turned 21 and had a child called him and asked if he would sell her the car and he did sell it to her.
    No electrical parts were ever replaced on it just filters and brakes and fluids.

    Any car I feel should make 300,000 miles easy without gremlins.

    yeah I have literally no desire to own a car that long. The Camaro is the only one that has survived

    My daughters Camry just turned 246000, put a power steering hose on it last week a real pain. Other than normal maintenance oil changes, brakes, timing belts, and 1 radiator the car has been very reliable transportation.
