I like my 99 Accord with 174k, I’d like to see 300k out of it. Any tips (from people who have kept a car this long) on how to help get her there? I change the oill every 3k, the transaxle fluid every 20k, have the brakes checked periodically, tires rotated, coolant changed every 30k, air filter, spark plugs etc. and all issues big or small, get taken care of as soon as practical even if it’s something like a burned out bulb. Really all the maintenance in the o-manual gets taken care of. Timing belt is due around 215k or 3 yrs from now. It gets waxed twice a year and i’m an OCD neat freak so the interior is in pretty good shape.
When I worked at the hotel and did valet in college, I always admired the high mileage, older vehicles that were in good shape you could just tell that the owners took good care of them, it was a classy touch. I want to be one of those people.
