Hello. I currently own an Acura MDX. This is the second one that I have owned. The first one had transmission issues and the dealer replaced the transmission but once it was replaced, it was never the same car.
I have had a very positive experience with Acura. My current MDX has 156,000 miles on it and for the most part it runs great. I just wonder what the life expectancy is for these vehicles? Does anyone know?

I own a 2009 honda civic hybrid, and just had the battery pack go out. It won't get a chance to get high mileage as I am not gonna be stuck paying 3000 dollars for the next battery pack. Its gonna get traded in, and NOT on a Honda!

Wow I just read a post I did in sep of 07 about my 96 TL ,well I no longer have that 96 TL,I traded it in for a 2003 TL with 72K. 6 years ago,now I'm at 150,300 k,the only problem I had was a bad transmission,that was replaced by the Acura dealership for free ,replaced the timing belt and water pump and thermos stack at 142 K , now I'am shooting for 200K in a few years!

Hi! I'm Etienne. I like Honda cars a lot! Can anyone tell me about the 1985-1988 Honda Today kei car? Was it popular and how's the reliability on the 3 cylinder engine? What's the life-expectancy of this engine?

I recently purchased a well used 88 Honda civic hatchback with 252xxx miles and it runs great and doesn't use any oil gets almost 40 mpg and actually has decent room in the cab (plenty of leg room too) I'm a big guy and never thought I'd like a small car but after you drive a Honda you can easily get hooked ha

Just bought a 2007 MDX. Love it. My wife has never cared about the car she was driving, including Mercedes and nice Buick and Mercurys. Since she has been driving this car she does not stop talking about how much she likes this and that about the car. She says it is deigned for women drivers as all the controls are in close reach and comfortable to manage. I love the ride and overall performance. It has 88k on it so far. I think I'll sell it at around 200k the way it is so far. Of course, I'll replace it with a newer MDX.

Let me just say that this is the most amazing car I have ever owned.Ridiculously well built, holds a ton (I once put 1,000 pounds of tile in it and it was fine. Tried that with a Dodge once and it was never the same again. Everything except the rear defrost works fine. This car just won't quit! Gets about 34 to the gallon hwy. I wish it were a little faster, but what a great car!
You tried that with a Dodge ... Magnum?...pickup?...charger?.. neon...?

My 2007 Acura MDX has 310,000 miles on it . I have done all required service which was very minamal and it is still running great to day. Just resently I had to replace a rear main seal and a drivtrain seal thise are the only major fixes done to this car. Other than the 100,000 mile timing belts. I am sold to the beauty luxury and craftsmanship of this vehicle. I am a firm supporter and believe this car will run much longer and I am prepared to take it there. I would say spend the extra money up front and by one of these and it will be worth it.

My 2000 accord lx sprung a gas tank leak after 235,000 miles. 5-6 months a year it was driven in salt laden south east Michigan roads.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord EX. I bought it brand new in 1993 at Stevens Creek Honda. Now the car has about 215,000 miles and still going strong. So far I have replaced timing belt and water pump twice. The first timing belt went out 39,000 miles later after I had it replaced at 100,000 miles at a shop. They rip me off by using cheap parts. I had to hired another mechanic to replaced the water pump and the timing belt again at 139,000 miles. But the car still running strong like new. At around 200,000 miles, I replaced the motor mounts, the starter, the radiator. The radiator was replaced before at around 170, 000 miles. Lately, I heard grinding sound when msking tight turns. I also replaced ignition coil, window regulator on driver side and the AC blower also went out. The master cyclinder was replaced at 100,000 miles and still good. The O2 sensors was replaced because of the check engine light and smog check failed. But I think with all these repairs, the car runs very good. The engine and the transmission still good. With 215000 miles, this car is still smooth and strong. I like Hondas because of the handling and reliability.

Anyone notice any difference between Japan or U.S. built Hondas?....Japan VIN's will start with a "J"....U.S. with low numbers.....
