Hondas are great. My stepmom's 1990 Civic has about 360,000 miles on it. We did change the engine at around 300,000 though. It didn't give out, we just figured it needed changing. My 88 Accord has about 152,000 miles on it and I'm counting on it lasting me a couple more years.

I used to drive an '87 Civic for two years ('99-'01). It served me well. It has close to 250,000 kms and mechanically it needs work. Somehow over last winter anti-freeze got into one of the cylinders. The shifter is really sloppy, and the clutch is virtually gone. But for the price I paid, it served me well and I would do it again any day.

I have a 1992 Honda Civic 160i, which has just clocked 203 000km. It is the most reliable car I have ever owned, but it is starting to rust in a number of places, including places I have never seen cars rust before and it has recently started to leak and I don't know where the water is getting in. It does not look good any more and I am disappointed that despite having been looked after it is disintergrating around me. Excellent engineering though.

I drive a Acura (Honda) and its the most mechanically reliable vehicle I have seen.
Honda still hasnt gotten down the Noise Vibration Harshness aspect. Rattles and squeaks everywhere. Also like the guy above said, the plastics and various trim pieces will fall off or loosen up before anything else goes wrong.
But it will hold up no matter how much you abuse it/hate it.

1995 Acura Integra GSR. Just hit 100,000 miles so I did the timing belt. Other than that, I haven't spent a dime on it. Great car and I plan on driving keeping it for another 100K miles. If I could find a better compromise between sports car performance, looks, gas mileage, and the practicality of four seats, I buy something else.

Me and my family have been driving Honda's for years. My lease is due on my Honda at the end of this month so I have to turn mine in. But I'll be walking out of the dealer with another one - an Accord EX!
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

My 86 Accord LXI hatchback is on permanent loan to my Mom now, everything major is original, including the rust. It won't stop running though, 216,000 Alaskan miles.
I gave it some TLC and a tune up this past summer. On the "Test Drive" it rolled the speedo needle over 110 MPH. When it was young 130 was possible.
That's my third one, the first was the original 77 Accord, put 170,000 miles on it and sold it to the pizza delivery guy. The second was an 84 Accord sedan, put 140,000 miles on it and sold it to a high school kid who I bumped into at a mall parking lot 5 years later and it had over 200,000 at that time.

Anyways I can be spotted in my 1996 Chevy Impala SS Custom with redone engine that blows all of you out of the water with a 5.7 V8 (same as a vette) and over 360HP at my disposal.

I hope you guys didnt make the Civic and Accord Rice Rockets.....Anyways to Honda, not a bad car maker overall (the cars could get bigger)

LOT, Your point being??? My girlfriend has a freaking Mercedes S600 (which means i drive it everywhere) that blows your crap out of the water. Impala, what the hell? Don't know why your bragging about. By the way, used to have a Chevy Tahoe, which I traded in for my Honda Accord and I love it. Don't know why you brag about Chevy's, they are nothing but tanks that are ugly as hell might I had. By the way, I love the CRV and you have no right in criticizing people who drive cars with 300K miles. This could mean that they might be a bit smarter and more appreciative for $ and value of things, but you have no right in criticizing them. So why don't you shove the 350 HP (which I doubt it has) and shove it up your a**, all up in it.
