231,800 on my VX, origonal engine with perfect compression, and 140,000 on the current tranny, and the mpg keeps going up.
I did finely get a low mileage car, 160,000 on my new 1983 civic hatch, I wonder if it's broken in yet.
I know this doent count but my brother is a Honda Tech at the local dealers. He once bought and Accord with 624,000 miles on it just so he could tell people he had a honda with 600k on it. I ran fine but he sold it because he hated the 4 door look.
Buying new is for suckers. What a hideous way to loose cash.

True. I bought my car in 07/2004 with 200,900 miles. Since then (28 months) I have put on 56,000 miles. I used to have to commute very long distances for work, school, and my then girlfriend (now wife). I don't drive my car to simply rack up miles, but racking up miles is an effect of driving.
