Maine Driver Reaches 1,000,000 Miles in His Honda Accord
Honda has always been known for their longevity and durability, but no one has truly proved that as well as Joe LoCicero. Joe has managed to get an astounding 1,000,000 miles on his 1990 Honda Accord. The best part is, his car is still going!
The first question that pops into many people's minds is how did he get this far without mechanical difficulty? Well, Joe would tell you that regular maintenance is the key to longevity. In Joe's case, he was previously a car mechanic so he could do a lot of the repairs himself, but for those who are less mechanically inclined, Hillside Honda can help you service your car.
Just some of the things Joe did to keep his car in
tip top shape were:
- Accurately follow your owner manual and maintenance schedule
- Check vehicle fluids weekly and switch them annually
- Use quality Honda parts
- Change your oil every 5,000 miles and stick with the same brand
- Change brake fluid every couple of years
- Never let your tank run on "empty"
- Drive safe!
For his allegiance to the brand and for proving that Honda cars are extremely well built, Joe was given a brand new Honda Accord. If you want to take a crack at reaching 1,000,000 miles, be sure to bring your Honda in to Hillside Honda for regular service.
