Through the patience, skill and dedication of Honda of Seattle, and a service advisor, my Honda Civic DX has reached 300,000 miles without breaking down once. I put most of the miles on my Honda during a mammoth commute that I had from 2004-2010. For just over 4 years, I was driving 86.5 miles to work each way, and then 50 miles roundtrip per day after that. When I began working for the Federal Government, I drove my Honda 2,400 miles to St. Louis, Missouri, and then back again via I-90 last May (2012) when I made a joyful return to Seattle. It is Honda of Seattle however that has kept my Civic in perfect running condition all these years, and to not have had a single breakdown on the road for this entire time is remarkable. I take my hat off to Honda of Seattle and Honda in general, as my 1996 Civic DX is far and away the best car that I have ever owned. Thank you so very much, and although I will keep my current car, I plan on purchasing a 2014 Civic to compliment it. Best wishes always, Edward.
