    Hi, I think I never presented myself, I'm an Honda long time user, every car that I bough for my personal driving till this date were 2nd hand Hondas:

    1st - 1989 Honda Civic Sedan 1.4 dual carburetor
    2nd - 1995 Honda Accord 2.0 ES
    3rd - 1999 Honda Accord 2.0
    4rd - 2004 Honda Accord 2.2 CTDI Executive Tourer

    I like to make road trips and I work 140kms from my home, that make my cars to make many Kms, at this date the Tourer have 506Ks Km.

    I think is awesome that almost all car is what it come out from factory 12 years and half a million kms ago, the only real failures that it had till now were the auto boot lead (never repaired), turbo and the alternator. Clutch and shock absorbers are original ones per example, by the way, all previous cars had similar behaviour but never reached the level on the Tourer, I had previous cars "only" till +/- 350Ks Km.

    Well, car is not in big shape in terms of appearance, I've bought it with 190Ks km and 5 years ago already with some dents, till present date I had some small "immediate encounters with other objects" :Smile: and the front is dented a lot from high speed sand particles and litle rocks.

    About maint, I do it myself, usually straight filters and oil change, in Potugal after 8 years it have to be inspected every year to be allowed to be used on the street, usually I use that inspection to check any anomalies and fix them, till this date mainly direction and headligh aligments.
