Awesome! It really is a great feeling hitting all the different 200k+ milestones on a car that still runs good. The milestones are never quite the same with a POS car that likes to break down- at that point you're cursing every milestone!
275k is the next milestone for my commuting car, looking forward to the big 300! At around 220k I had to do a water pump and a few suspension bits since then, otherwise haven't touched a thing. Hope your ride continues to treat you good through the 200-300k journey!
Is that the 4 banger? Long runners...
Any OCI secrets? Oil brand, filter, etc?
I recently gave a single Mom my parents 1998 LX with about 85K. Always garaged...
It's perfect. She has put 20K on it since May.
Once I started to work mostly from home my miles went down and I got sick less often. I remember being in the office towards the end of Oct. But not in Nov yet.
But I intend to keep my Ford PSD a long time. It gets treatments of rust prevention spring and fall. Synthetic oil and bypass filter. Wife does not drive it.
It is possible to drive these 6th generation Accord V6 4-speed AT to relatively high mileage without any major (e.g., transmission) repairs. Mine hit 250k miles last Friday.
I believe the 1998-2002 Accords had problems with their (BAXA) AT's....Honda extended the warranty because of it....the V6's seemed more troublesome than the 4 bangers.....I sold my 2001 4 cylinder at 110K because of the uncertainty of the A/T's durability....
Wifes 2000 Accord had 330k+ on it when it got totaled back in August. I had a pic of the odometer, but I think I deleted it. It was still ticking, even after she ran it dry on oil in July. That poor car had a rough end of its life, but I'm fairly confident we would have made 400k easily.
