i owned a 1991 honda crx with a mileage of 450,000 miles.

everything about the car was original, full and complete interior, original exterior, ac working, stick shift, original engine and transmission. never even had to replace the headgasket.

timing belt and water pump was replaced 3 times, clutch twice, and so forth with regular maintenance.

i believe every vehicle can last just as long if taken care of.

i owned older honda civics too that were just complete garbage. especially 92-95 civics.

they had numerous problems such as bad rack and pinions, numerous wheel bearings weearing out, cheap *** interior, head gasket replacements, etc.

in my opinion, any vehicle will last as long as it is maintained. besides american brand

I'll take that bet!

Over 409,900 as of today. But I don't think I'll make it to a million before I die, haha. I don't drive nearly as far each day as I used to.

I have a 2003 RSX-S... the original engine has 371,000 miles on it. ALL internal parts were original... timing chain, tensioner and chain guides have not been replaced. The water pump seal receded/shrank and began to weep, so I pulled the engine to freshen things up. I then decided, even though it runs perfectly, to replace it with a K24/K20 combination for better daily drivability. The original engine lived on Amsoil and was changed religiously every 3000 miles.

Suspension parts have worn out multiple times... and the driver's seat looks like a hungry bear had been locked inside the car... but I have new interior parts and the suspension has been freshened up. I look forward to driving it for years to come.
