2000 Honda Civic LX from North America
With the approval of the auto gods, I wanna make it to at least 500,000
I bought this car used, and have had it for two years now, and so far the things I've spent money on were standard wear items such as timing belt and water pump replaced before failure.
The oxygen sensor failed at about 95,000 miles, which was a bit out of the blue, but wasn't a big deal.
What I need now are getting the suspension done, fuel filter and brake pads replaced.. all stuff every car needs replaced several times within its lifetime.
Low horsepower, but acceptable tradeoff.
Good gas mileage.
Decent cost to insure.
Looks good with basic care such as semi-annual wax and frequent washes.
7 years old and still looks great simple mods such as window tint, wheels, and rear wing spoiler.
A great starter car and beyond that.
Parts commonplace, and just about every mechanic is knowledgeable about repairing a Civic.
Transmission layout easy to follow, so it's easy to do self service such as oil changes and coolant changes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It is everyone's wish to make it to 500k with their car, but you have to be a serious driver to do so. You cannot just drive a little a year and expect the car to make it to 500k. It is more practical if it is done when the car is newer and not when it is already 10 years old. I wanted my 94 Honda to make it to 500k too, but newer and better deals came, and I traded it with almost 300k on it.
