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.

"If a Car Could Have a Soul"

If cars could have a soul this car would be your most loyal friend. Although I’m not the original owner of my 323,000 1990 Accord EX, I have known the original owners for years. The car was purchased new at College Hills Honda in Wooster Ohio, and thanks to their excellent service, it runs as if new. I purchased the car at 230,000 miles when the original owners asked me, an ex Honda employee, if I might know of anyone who wanted there car. They loved and had a passion for the car, keeping it years longer than they ever thought they would. I’ve continued with that dedication through a spirit of ongoing preservation. The car continues to draw attention from people who, at this point, don’t realize what it is. They are sure it is a new or different model, and can’t believe it is a 17 year-old Accord. I have had, and still have, newer Honda and Acura products but this is by far my favorite. The Accord shares the garage with a 6-speed Acura TL, destined to be its replacement when it wares out, but I think and hope there is a long wait for Acura.

Very cool looking car. What a tribute to Honda engineering and quality. This car is a gem, Jarrod. Very classic design that looks like new. Keep it looking great.
