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.

It's perfect. She has put 20K on it since May.

But has she had the oil changed yet?

My condolences for having to have driven that turd for 260k miles. That must’ve been brutal.

NYC traffic, I know it well. When you consider the hours vehicles run in NYC commutes and translate them to miles, 250K miles isn't that much. EG a 20 mile run to get into or out of NYC during rush hour can take 2-3 hours, in some parts of the country in 2-3 hours you can cover well over 100 miles. LOL Having said that 220K miles is still an impressive milestone.

My commute is about 94 miles round trip per day -- not uncommon in this area, and I'm considered to be fairly close to my work. Many of my coworkers commute in to our NW DC shop from West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Pamper him/her and give it a wash and a wax...

RE lolvoguy: taking pictures with a cellphone. When my elantra reached 66,666 and 77,777 miles, I stopped on the right, on a 15 mph low volume road.

But has she had the oil changed yet?

I was at Stevens Creek Honda in San Jose when my Dad bought the car.
I am the only one to service this car.
So yes, I am keeping up with the services.
I just changed the oil with Quaker State Synthetic, 5w30.
Next time I will replace the plugs and service the transmission.

All good bro. Thanks for the reminder.
My only requirement was Cindy bring me the car whan serivice was due.
