My Kia Sorento has 628 miles. Someday, it'll get to high mileage.

I have a Camry Wagon, owned by my parents and in the family since new. I have put 263,000 miles on it. It has had routine oil changes, but the transmission did go once, and perhaps the radiator. We have neglected it--waiting until something goes wrong rather than following routine maintenance. But I drive slowly, with no hard acceleration. It leaks oil, but runs great...26-28 mpg, 2.2L 4 cyl engine

I had a '87 Stanza (Nissan) that I had been driving for quite awhile, and I ended up getting rid of it at 251K-miles as the computer in it just kept failing on me, but the engine and everything in it was at decent shape (consumed two quarts of oil over a 3000-mile oil-change, ran perfectly short of a low-RPM loading miss). Last I heard, the guy I sold it to has gotten it to 281K-miles (a couple months ago) and it sounds like it's gone about as far as it's probably gonna. A couple gears in the manual tranny's gone and the valves chatter with spec-weight oil. Dunno if it's still eating starters, as it was when I had it.

To me, it isn't high-mileage until it breaks 200K, dispite most people seemingly considering 75K to be high-mileage. To me, that's just barely burned in. DRIVE IT UNTIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF!

Oh, and the car I replaced it with, a '96 Ford Taurus, almost in mint condition, has got about 150K-miles or so on it.

I had a 1984 Nissan Maxima (RWD model) with 290K on it.
The most mileage I got from an American car was my 1977 Chrysler Cordoba that had 210K on it without a rebuild.

I have yet to have one rebuilt. Usually, the engine seems to outlast everything else with every vehicle I've been around.

hey dillburt,
the motor thats in your accord is a f22 wich came in accords and some preludes.
the f22 is a verrrrrrry strong motor that will run forever and can take a beating. if you ask me the f22 is one of the strongest SOHC motors that honda has produced.
Now....there is one down fall to all honda motors: they like to burn oil when they get high miles due to shot piston rings and front/rear main seals.....but as long as you watch the oil and take care of the car u could get well over 400,000 miles easy!
