Proof of Honda Engine Reliability

Not my car, but a guy with this RSX:



Convert that from MPH, and that's 374,000km on an 2003 RSX.

Now if Honda could only design transmissions that are just as bulletproof

Commutes to work from suburbs to city. You can easily hit that.

there was a civic on showcase at the honda dealership on fraser hwy some years back. surpassed the 1 million k mark. that's without ever having the heads removed.
that was late 70's technology. imagine the marks cars can hit now with the advancements we've made. though the longevity of any vehicle is only as great as its owner

occasionally i see cars with over 300k at the dealer. not uncommon. when ever people tamper with the odometer, they roll it down, not up.

For the past 3 years, I've been driving from Vancouver to Abbotsford. I am averaging about 20,000km a year just for the commute to work.

Doesn't the ECU reset when a new engine is put in?

Anyway I see your point. He had no reason to lie about it, pretty sure it's real. Plenty of Honda engines in the pass have far surpassed that mileage.

The ecu will reset any time you unplug the battery but it won't change the odometer. You can swap the engine 10 times and the odometer reading will remain the same.

There's a guy on 3geez.com whose family has an '86 Accord with over 1 million KM - they've made a couple trips to South America. My first '87 Accord was at 478,000 when I wrote it off.

The old Dodge Slant 6 motor was nearly indestructible. My dad bought a Dodge pickup brand new in '81 and put it out to pasture in '87 with over 450,000km on it. My sister had run it dry of oil once and it kept on going - was drinking a 4l jug just to get from Vancouver to our place near 100 Mile House, but it kept on going.

Only once ever saw a Slant 6 die, and that was in a '69 Valiant - guy threw a rod flying down the East-West Connector.

i've seen 4A corollas with half a million KMs on them, and they get the snot driven out of them... not surprised to see cars hit that type of mileage if they're well maintained...

that is actually a really good example of synthetic oil vs conventional oil... almost 0 wear wtih synthetic oil, whereas conventional oil would've turned an engine black by now... even if the oil was changed as per the manufacturers recommendation...

I did that commute for 6 months. Going to Abby in the morning was no big deal but the traffic from 176 to the bridge, coming home, was a fucking nightmare.
