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.

The original owner bought this car in New York in 1981 and moved out to California, bringing the car with them. My father bought it in January of 1992, at which point it had 72,000 miles on it. That's not even broken in for a Honda! It's been a family workhorse since then, and it is my first car. It is a 5-speed and I took and passed my driver's test in it. It's fun to drive and you can't beat the gas mileage.

I have owned Honda's for the last 20 years. I had a used 81 Honda Civic with 81K when I bought it used in CA. I moved to NY and took it with me, racking UP 225K miles before it was totaled by a deer who ran into it!!! I replaced that with a 91 Honda Civic wagon that was great. I ran that one UP to 161K and replaced that with a 98 CRV that came with 24K miles. I have the CRV UP to 150K and it's running like a TOP!!!
