I really don't know, now that I think about it.
I found a nice one-owner with 124K.
After two years it has 175K and the only thing that has not been routine maintenance has been some rust thru the exhaust system.
Brakes/tires, fluids, filters, and spark plugs.
That's all I've had to touch.
I've owned a lot of high mileage cars b/c I prefer them for various reasons but this one acts half it's age.
It also beasted thru the Appalachian mountains loaded with myself and about 250lbs of military gear, so don't underestimate the power under the hood.
And I average 35 mpg.

Got it brand new at 12 miles, around the 7th yr / 70,000 parts start to break down, 2 oxygen sensors (1st around 73k, 2nd around 110k), 2 drive shafts (around 80k), 1 radiator (110k), 1 broken alternator (95k), 1 cracked manifold catalytic housing (around 60k, except for the sound, it drives great). I make many long trip per year now so I decided to get another car and retired the Civic ~125k. Someday I'll fix it up properly which would cost around 1k to 2k. The Civic is really fun to drive, the interior is so simple which I really like. The engine can high rev and goes no where fast which is fun and funny to me. This car was very reliable and have never left me stranded.
