    Do you have a V-6 or a 4cyl ? We sold our 96 Accord 2.7 V-6. Great car always ran good. Had an oil leak from the filter housing to the block. Replaced that and resealed the rocker covers degreased the engine and detailed the car. Sold on C/L for 1600.00 Only had 133000 on it. Tried to get 2300.00 but settled. Too many Vehicles. Too bad I would have liked to keep it to teach my kids to drive in a couple years.

    The only vehicle I've had a problem with. Bought a 2000 Camry in 2001. Had 15 K miles on it. Drive it home from the dealer and no problems. Took it for a ride that night and the signals didn't work. Worked on the way home???? Took it back to the dealer in the AM and they worked. Took it home that night and they didn't work. Turned right back to the dealership. I went to HS with the owner. He has dealerships all up and down the east coast. Come to find out, when you turned the headlights on, the signals stopped working. That was just a sign of things to come. When the stereo system quit, that was it.

    Toyotas are good cars. This one was a lemon.

    Since I quit the 40 hour a week grind, it's the first time that we've had only 2 vehicles with over 100,000 miles on it in our garages in a very long time.

    The GTO and the Camaro are over 100,000. We bought the Camaro with 93,000 on it in 2000. The GTO "showed" 53,000 on it when we bought in 1992, but I'm sure that was the second time around.

    When I turned in my company car (2011 Impala) it had 270,000 on it. My previous company car (2006 HHR) had 165,000 when they gave me the Impala.

    This year was the first time since 1980 that I sold a car I bought new that had less than 150,000 miles on it. We traded in our 2014 Chevy Sonic on our new 2019 Equinox. The Sonic only had 53,000 miles on it in 4.5 years due to mainly being driven only on weekends for 3.5 years. The previous car we had purchased new was our 2006 Torrent that had 156,000 on it when we bought the 2014 Cadillac ATS4 in 2016.

    The Sonic was in great shape, just wanted something larger. I paid $9466 for it new and got $5750 for it on trade. The Equinox stickered for $36,240 and I got roughly $16,000 off the sticker price before my trade. Too good a deal to pass up...

    I know how you feel. I had a 2003 Dodge Caravan with the four cylinder Dodge engine in it. Minimal upkeep required, only options it had was A/C, Tape Deck, and Rear Defrost and Wiper. Ended up putting 270,000 miles on it. I would have kept it but the body literally rusted out around the engine. The engine ran great!!!!

    243K on my 2009 Honda CR-V EX. Best daily driver I've ever owned. Probably buy another one in December.

    I put over a half a millions miles on a Honda Civic. Gas, Oil Changes, Tires & Timing Belts ( on time) were the only things done.

    It's either still running or some little douche bought it, riced it out and wrapped it around a pole!

    If it got riced out, the pole was probably the most humane ending it could have.....

    I just sold my 2000 Nissan Frontier V6 Crew Cab which I purchased brand new. I sold it with 280,000 miles. Fantastic motor!! Never let me down. So while it was still chugging along, numerous non-propulsion related things were going wrong with it. The AC didn't work. Heater took forever. Most radio buttons worn out. Dash lights occasionally would go out (Isolated the problem to the dimmer switch). Steering wheel padding worn out from my sweaty hands. lol. Black paint still nice but the clear coat starting to fail in some spots. Horn not working (isolated to clock spring in the column). Interior over all nice but driver seat bolsters wearing out and headliner starting to sag and a general "old couch" smell inside the cabin. So yeah I could have kept it longer but sometimes it just time replace something.
