175,000 miles and still kicking!

1996 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe
I bought this car as the 3rd owner in July of 2002. I purchased it for $2500 b/c the seller had put 144,500 miles on it and dealerships were only going to give her $2k for a trade in. I have done minimal work on this car and it has been very reliable. Routinely gets me 25+mpg. Long highway trips will net me 30 mpg. Great gas mileage.Just realized this car is still on original timing belt so that is getting replaced this week. 175,000 mils on original timing belt! wow!Wish the car had more power, but it gets the job done
great gas mileage, reliable, requires minimal maintenance
more power, car is S-L-O-W. 130 hp for this size car is sad.
