200,000 Miles and Beyond

In a recent article from Fox News, the Civic, Accord and Odyssey have been ranked at the top of the list for cars from the model years 1981 to 2010 to achieve 200,000 miles.  The data was put together by iSeeCars.com, and was based on listings for 30 million vehicles advertised for sale during the last year.  They looked at the model years 1981 to 2010 that were listed for sale and ranked those vehicles based upon the percentage that reached 200,000 miles or more.  Out of the top ten cars on that list, Honda has more cars than any other manufacturer that are on the road with more than 200,000 miles.  In fact, the Honda Accord is at the top of the list, achieving the highest number of Accords with over 200,000 miles on the road.  The Odyssey came in fourth place, and is the only minivan in the top ten vehicles to reach 200,000 miles.  The Civic is number eight on the list, with a long track record of reliability.
Hondas are known to last long, in fact, American Honda has a club for Honda owners who have cars that have gone 100,000 miles or more.  The Honda Mile Makers Club is full of owner’s stories and pictures, along with awards for mileage milestones.  If you plan on racking up the miles, purchase a Honda, it won’t let you down.

2014 Civic

“Honda has made another major round of improvements to the Civic for 2014. As a result, the 2014 Honda Civic is one of the best compact cars you can buy.” -Edmunds.com

The reviews are in, and the 2014 Honda Civic has come out on top of the competition.  Honda has redesigned the Civic for 2014, to include some exterior body updates, a new CVT transmission and all-new technology.  The 2014 Civic Sedan has also earned the highest possible score of “Good” across all five safety tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), making it a 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK.

The 2014 Honda Civic is a great car that combines reliability and fuel economy into a quality and sporty package. Very few compact cars can deliver a solid and sporty ride while rewarding the driver with an EPA estimated 30+ miles to the gallon.  The Honda Civic is priced competitively and utilizes high quality materials and superior construction that gives the Civic the look and feel of a much pricier vehicle.  With all the technology that comes standard, such as a rearview camera, USB audio interface, SMS text messaging, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, 7-inch Display Audio screen, Pandora Compatibility and much more, you won’t believe the price tag.
