I bought the car for blue book value of about $3400 and had no problems aside from regular maintenance of tires and brakes for the first few years, from 170,000 through about 270,000. Spectacular car. It hit a real "sweet spot" of reliability for that period.
At 270,000, I changed the timing belt, gambling that I could get to 300,000. I did, but it cost me. Things started to go wrong about once a month. I had to replace a few engine parts, including a fuel related thing that gave the car a gas smell for a while.
At some point, around 290,000, I bought a set of 4 new tires and found them bald in a few weeks. The wheels had gotten loose because I needed to replace the control arms and some other stuff underneath. Those had kept the wheels from wobbling. But that's a wear and tear issue that people seldom hear about because almost no one drives their car to 300,000 these days.
In the end, after $3K worth of work over about 17 months - including a stretch where the car was in the shop about once a month - the engine was losing compression because of a cracked cylinder or something inside the block. I was looking at $1,500 and upward, so I finally bailed.
Never replaced the clutch, and I drive in a lot of traffic here in the northeast. Honda must make great clutches.
