I graduated college in December 1993 and bought a brand new '93 Honda Civic a few weeks later. After 19+ years, 336,000 miles, changing jobs 3 times to 3 different parts of the US, the Honda keeps running. (And it still averages 40 mpg, closer to 44 mpg right after I change the air filter) People ask how long I will keep the car. The original clutch lasted to 260,000 miles and the timing belt was just replaced (4th time) at 320,000 miles. So we shall see. As long as it keeps running so well, I plan to keep driving it.
This car has infinitely exceeded my expectations for its affordability, reliability and durability. I never could have imagined 19 years ago that this Honda would still be running, and running so well. I highly recommend the Civic to anyone.
