This is my 1993 Honda Accord odometer rolling over to 300,000 miles. Let's see an American-made car do that on the original engine and transmission! I bought it 3 years ago with 270,000 miles on it. I paid $600 US. Think about it. A relatively cheap monthly car payment for a new car is $200 per month. In three months, I got my money back! I haven't had to do much for it. I do all my own work on the car. I did the timing belt at 272,000 miles. That was probably the biggest expense I put into it as far as time and money go (more so time.) It only left me stranded once and of course it was the distributor igniter (older Honda's weak point.) I had new tires put on and did my own oil changes and tune-ups on it. The a/c still works! The body could be in better shape. The wheel-wells have the usual rust on it. The clutch has over 100000 miles on it yet it doesn't slip and seems to be strong. The c/v axle has been clicking since I got it, but I haven't changed it yet. I think I will sell it this summer or something. So the Big Three automakers are tanking, yet Honda, Toyota, and other foreign name cars are doing ok. Hmmm, I wonder why? It's called quality. Sure some Honda's are riddled with problems and some Big Three cars never have any major problems, but look at the big picture.
