Honda’s High Mileage Club

| 8/12/2008 10:45:31 AM

Honda makes famously reliable cars, and there are thousands of people out there who have a crazy number of miles — 100K, 200K, 300K, even more — on numerous models such as the Civic, Accord, Insight and Odyssey. 

Needless to say, these owners are proud of the number of miles on their cars; these aren’t people who trade for something new every couple years. Honda recently launched an online community, The Honda Mile Makers Club, where they can share their stories and show off their reliable rides. 

Here are just some of the interesting stories on the site: 

A Civic with 1,170,910 miles

An Insight (Honda’s first gasoline-electric hybrid, unfortunately no longer in production) with 338,000 miles

A Civic Hybrid with 595,000 miles

Hi everyone/anyone. Hey, I'm looking at a Honda Pilot or even a Honda CR-V. As long as it has AWD or 4WD. Need that here in Michigan. When we bought our 1998 Honda Accord, I joined this forum. I just re-registered because I forgot what old email address I used [no longer excesses. At any rate, when our oldest grandson turned 16, we gave it to him. Austin, [Our Grandson] started driving it in 2015. He just brought it back over a month ago & he's giving it to our Daughter because they no transportation. Austin called me & told me his buddy sells a car a month. I told him he should look for a Pilot or CR-V if he wanted something good but used. He drove over with a Chevy Blazer.... I was hocked that he didn't even think about Honda. I told him that over the past 4 1/2 years he got it up to 225k & the engine & trans handle like it's just off the assembly line. I explained to him that I believe that Honda was using the same engine & trans or a setup close to the 4 cylinder engine & trans he had in the Accord. I'm hoping I can get him to rethink he choice of vehicles because he already stopped by & had no motor oil showing on the dipstick. Now the Blazer was from Canada, so that 155k was Kilometers, not US miles, so he actually has like 97k but if it's leaking of burning that much oil, something isn't right. I'm wondering if the odometer was tampered with. Some friend right...... At any rate, I'll be stopping by once a week or so. Now if there's anyone here who has a Pilot or a CR-V, from 2003 to 2007, I'd love to hear what they have to say about either of those 2 SUVs. I'm not really scared to buy something with higher mileage because from what I've heard, The Honda Pilot was ranked #2 in the top 10 vehicles to buy. I just looked at a Saturn Vue & with the Honda engine & trans that GM had put in the Vue, now I can see how people are getting 300k out of those Vue's..... Another reason I'm here is because I like reading the stories about the couple out in Arizona with 650k on their 1997 Honda Civic. How in the heck did Honda do that? Such great cars & trucks, while all the U.S. Automakers allow consumers that purchase their products, only to get up into the 180k miles before their vehicle dies a quick car death. It's a shame. Take into consideration the cost of vehicles, 250k should be the American Standard..... Man some of those countries must think that we're the dumbest people on the planet..... Okay, I'm rambling on now, so I'll go hunt for a CR-V or Pilot & let one make my day.... Take care everyone.... Dan

We bought our Honda Civic Hybrid 2007 model new, now we have put on 2459100 miles and it still is running, the only thing we are not sure is now it has a little bit noise while driving. We are very proud Honda car owners, hopefully, this car can run a record of 500000 miles!
