There are memories behind every mile in a Honda, and we’d love to hear yours. If your odometer has reached a notable milestone, this is the place to share your journey with others who have done the same. Congratulations—not every Honda travels 100,000 miles and beyond. The stories here don’t represent the average expectancy of every Honda. Everyone’s experience is different based on vehicle, driving manner and conditions.

I absolutely love my Honda! I got my Civic as a senior in high school in 2000. It was 4 years old at the time but only had 14,000 miles! Seven years and more than 127,000 miles later, my Honda is running just as great as the first day I drove it! These cars are amazing. In my opinion, Honda has far surpassed other auto makers in countless categories. Fit and finish, unbeatable reliability, and timeless designs are just a few that come to mind. I'm always recommending Hondas to my family and friends and those who have switched, immediately realize what all the hype is about. As a professional freelance musician, my Honda has gotten me to countless different places all throughout the NE United States, safely and reliably. I look forward to many more years and miles with my Honda. It's been a real treasure! Thank you, Honda! You guys are the best!

I have a '96 black Civic Coupe too, and it's got 250,000 miles on it -- and still going strong. So you likely *will* have many more years and miles with your Honda! :-)

I bought my Honda Civic new back in 1998. I have 142,000 miles on it and still take it on trips, etc. It also has the original cluch! I have never owned a car as reliable as this one. I am convinced that the routine preventive maintenance at the dealer is the key to keeping the car in good working order. My only complaint is that I never get the opportunity to experience the excitement of buying a new car! I am 6 years without a car loan and loving every minute of it.
