Today was the biggest repair expense that I’ve ever put into a car. But it was all preventative. Since the Honda turned 100k, I knew it was time to get the timing belt replaced along with the major flushing of the systems. Normally that would cost $500 by itself. But I was upsold into replacing the water pump and the primary engine seals (which also required them to check the valve clearence to make sure there wasn’t any damage).
As I was leaving, I asked the guy what I could expect mileage wise out of this car.
“Oh with that Civic? Keep getting the major maintenances done and you can easily get 200k+”
I guess it’s time for my car to go through it’s mid-life crisis.
