My 1988 Honda Accord had 255,000 miles when I sold it...Paid $8,000. for it new,
sold it for $1500..Was a good car for the money, changed the oil and filter every 5,000
miles...Most cars will make 200.,000 if you take care of them...
Americans can not make cars. It is very rare for an American made car that to go 200,000 miles. Now don't get me wrong we can make some nice cars, but one that will go 200,000 miles without a major engine overhaul or transmission replacement is very unusual. Manufacturers make more money on replacement parts than on the automobile.
My 2001 Grand Cherokee has 202,000 miles on it and purring like a kitten. Maintenance is the key.
