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.

"It just keeps going"

I'm at my dealer getting an oil change. I never expected this car to go this many miles. The mileage today is 720,000. I drive it approx. 10000 miles per month as an independent courier out of Las Vegas. The mileage is 99% highway miles. Yesterday I squeezed 48 mpg out of it doing 65 mph most of the day without the a/c on. The weather has been really nice here. I have replaced the IMA battery once. Other than that it's been routine maintenance only at my dealer. I love this car.

I finally made it. My 2008 Honda CR-V hit 100,000 miles this weekend.

My 02 Civic has 155k+ on it. I've been able to perform all the routine maintenance on it myself (transmission fluid, changing brake pads, spark plugs, headlamps, etc...). The only non-routine maintenance was changing my struts and having the engine shut down on me cause the water pump busted (which happened right when the maintenance book said to change it). Love this car, and I'm having difficulty in deciding whether to get a new one or keep my old one chugging along.

Very interesting, What year hybrid is it? Do you change the oil every two weeks or 5000 miles?

2003 Civic Hybrid has 380,000 miles and other than routine maintenance, I've only had the transmission replaced (under warranty) at 90,000. I drive 50,000 miles a year to work and I need it to last another 3 years until I can retire.

Words can not expain how much I miss my 1990 CRX-Si. Purchased late in '89 and I drove it 17 yrs before having to sell it to move. I too was a courier and would rack up an average 50000 miles per yr. My final mileage was just under 300K at time of sale & I'm sure it's still running strong with it's second owner. I'm looking forward to it's revival in the concept car CR-Z. I cannot wait to get back into a Honda!

I have reached over 100,000 miles on my 02 Civic LX by doing nothing but oil changes at the dealer. I love my Civic. Recently car got overheated and got everything fixed. Still running without blown head. Hoping it runs like Louis C's car making at least 700.000 K.......long live Civics. "No Civics No Critics" From Honda

I own a 2005 Honda Civic LX. It currently has 52,000 miles and gets 36 miles per gallon. I drive about 60 plus miles per day round trip to work and it runs very welll. The get up and go is fantastic - I love my Honda.

Very nice to hear about a 720,000 mile CIVIC Hybrid. I've got 116,000 on my 2003. Mostly highway driving, scooting along at 62 mph most of the time and getting 50mpg. Measuring the MPG the old fashion way- taking the total mileage and dividing by the gallons to fill it up. A great car. I live in Ventura County, CA.

I thought 290,000 was high. That is great keep on riding.

My little 96 Civic Hatch CX has about 155,000mi on it. I have swapped out the cylinder head for the vtec version, put the EX/vtec transmission in it and I'm still getting 38mpg with almost all interstate driving. And it usually sees a couple of 7000rpm pulls a day too, still running just as strong if not stronger than from the factory. I also autocross and road race it too. I love my little Civic and I don't think I will ever get rid of it.

My '96 Civic EX had about 180,000 miles on the engine still running fine before I swapped a JDM B18C1(Integra GSR) with LSD tranny into it. Now it still runs great, is much more powerful, and even with the bigger engine I get up to 35mpg if I can resist the V-tech. I also have an '06 Si coupe and love it but it will be awhile before it passes 100,000. Honda's rule, the only problem is I don't know if I will ever be able to let them go. The S is next.

This is truly amazing. Had I not seen it on a credible website I would not have believed it. Way to go Honda.

Hey do you realize you're going to hit the million kilometer mark ?... 595 000 miles= 952 000km... Keep on going ;)

Just a much was the battery job? They're done so infrequently no one seems to know!
by Tristan M on November 28, 2007 at 10:14 PM
I was just wondering how much the IMA battery costs. I've heard that they are prohibitively expensive and that's why I haven't really considered buying a hybrid.
by Jeff D on November 15, 2007 at 9:41 PM
WOW!!! I have an 03 HCH with 80,000. I hope my car lasts half as long as yours. Did you have to pay for the new IMA? At what mileage did it go out?
by Peter F on November 4, 2007 at 4:57 PM
You inspire me.
