That is about what it is worth. The reason I haven't replaced it is the replacement cost. Plus there is no rust and the interior is in great shape.
The gas mileage isn't bad. 20-21 city and 29-30 highway. I just am getting tired of the car. Annoying little problems are starting to get under my skin. I have three hundred fifty dollars in parts in my back seat. The lumbar support in the seat broke. $50 in parts. Now I had to spend $300 for a new hatch handle and lock cylinder. The lock went south about 5 years ago due to the salt and crap thrown up on the hatch at speed. I could live with that except the handle now broke and I can't open the hatch from the outside. Climbing over the seat to open the hatch is getting old. I figure another 1.5 to 2 years it will be time to replace the car. $3.50-$4.00 gas has made the need for a newer vehicle mandatory that the fuel mileage is at least 4- 5 mpg better in the city and 7 to 10 mpg better highway mileage a necessity.

I've got 190K on the Benz (with original everything except timing chain, oil filter, T-stat, and A/C R-12 to 134 swap) I would like to keep this one for ever, it's just so nice on the highway, but the fuel injection system is so antiquated.

so In a year or two, I should have the big 200k. The Civic is at 186k, I've never owned a car with less than 100K. My old motorcycle (1976) only needs 192,368 more haha. Giving it an average of 240 miles/year!!! or about 6 gallon/year!

cool stories. I got my 93 civic in 2005 with 163k on it. had the timing belt/water pump done at 165K and replaced the 02 sensor at 170K. other than that I have not had to put a nickel into it other than oil changes and gas. next timing belt is due then about 255K With the rust the car has now, I cannot see putting another belt in it by then. the motor is going to outlast the body.

2 years ago, I had 250K on my 1987 Acura Intergra- but someone hit me and totaled it.

Re: 200k

wow, this is an old thread...

well, since I'm here. cavalier recently ticked over 237.5k miles. motor and trans original. I got her at 95k so we have quite a history. I was hoping to get to around 120k. it's funny thinking back. oh, and it's a 1997 if that matters.
