I would like to know how long do honda's really last? I have a 1998 honda civic ex with 130000 miles on it I've never had any problems out of it. I've only done basic servicing such as oil changes and timing belt along with water pump. I also had to replace a cracked exhaust manafold a few weeks back. I would like to keep the car for at least 2 more years.
Hondas usually last a very long time, so as long as you take good care of it you should get two more years out of it.
Ive seen a few past 400,000 miles.
If that's all you've been doing since you got it, it'd be best if you take
it and got a full tune up and everything. From alignment to transmission
fluid. It'd be a good idea, especially if you want to keep it for two more
years. Try to stick to the schedule they provide you with. If you can't
find it, ask them to give you one. Usually every three thousand miles you
need to get your oil changed, check belts and what not.
The Japs like to get every little detail in. When I bought my car, they told me everything I'd possibly have to do. Comparing that to when we got a Ford Windstar back in '01, pfft. They gave us the keys, took a picture, and we left. Shitty.
Do yourself a favor if you want the best out of this car. Get it looked at and inspected, and it could quite possibly last you more then two years.
Drive it like an old lady, and keep with scheduled tune-ups and oil changes.
MY 1990 Accord just passed 222,000 miles and still has yet to have a single
problem. Just did routine main. (oil change every 5000)...
Driven HARD too from day one.
Been lugging around 200lbs of audio equipment too for a few years.
I forgot to mention I have had a full tune up done plugs wires the whole 9.
Honda car last forever. :mrgreen:
i have a civic, and it has 161000 miles on it, and i have had very little trouble with it, replaced the radiator, distributor coils, and the exhaust. it has been driven hard since it was new
