I purchased Bluebell my 2004 Honda Civic back in 2004 while I was still in college never intending to drive her as much as I do. Well I managed to find a job over 45 miles from home and then decided to move further away. So my daily commute is typically 190-200 miles. At this rate I drive around 50,000 miles a year and they have quickly added up. So now Bluebell turns 250,000 in Nov 2012 roughly 7 1/2 years after I bought her.
I have no plans on selling her anytime soon or possibly ever! The only major repairs I've made are a new clutch (she is a MT) at 229,000 miles and a new alternator. The rest of the repairs have just been standard maintenance. I hope she makes it another 250k...350k...or hopefully 750k+ miles!
I loved Hondas before I bought Bluebell (this is my third Honda), but now after how well she has performed I am a Honda owner for LIFE!!
