1997 Honda Accord LX 2.2 from North America
Keeps on going!!
Nothing! Always starts and goes.
I do keep up on the regular maintenance so the timing, brakes, oil, etc.. are done at the local garage, but I do the air filter, plugs, wires myself every 40k.
I had to replace the struts and CV boots at 150k, which is just the regular wear and tear.
My buddy has 260k on his, and I just read an article of a 94 getting to 1,000,000 mile mark, so I’m going to keep this one going to 300k+ as long as it keeps on handling like a newer car on the road.
This is the best car I have ever owned! I am going on 234,000 miles on my 97 Accord while I am still on my original clutch, starter, alternator, exhaust, just to name a few.
The car's interior looks almost new; unfortunately the roof is starting to get a bit oxidized in the California sun. It’s a commuter car so it’s driven 110 miles a day, which is hard on the tires and suspension but good for the exhaust. At 36 miles per gallon it's still better than most new cars on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
