Hello:

Our bought new by us 2010 Honda Element SC hit 200,000 miles today. It runs and drives just as nicely as the day I bought it, but I do maintain all my vehicles to a very high standard.

I've never put this kind of mileage on any car I've owned. Our little Element is most definitely one of the very best vehicles I'll ever own. It's had the lowest cost of ownership, by far. Flawless reliability and economical operation. And I still love driving the thing. I can't say enough good things about it.

A few pictures to celebrate the occasion.

Scott

Yay! 200K! My old Tundra is close, as is wifey's TSX. My old '93 Toyota 4WD is over 350K and still in service.

Is that the mighty K24 engine?

Yes indeed. I should have mentioned that. K24. An amazing little engine.

Two pictures attached from when I adjusted the valves at 197K. It's had a life of Castrol Edge or Edge EP, 5W-20 or 5W-30, 5K OCIs, Honda A01 filter.

Looks great... Sure you got that many miles on the clock?
Our TSX has had a few things: alternator, ps pump (used a $69 new Amazon cheapie, gonna rebuild the original), starter was tired and 1 coil died (I replaced the other 3 as well).
This car is great. Gonna pull apart the brakes next OCI; clean and relube sliders, etc.
