Honda Accord From 1990 Hits 1 Million Miles

Honda 1 Million Miles: Joe LoCicero was given a 2012 Honda Accord at a parade in the city of Saco on Sunday after surpassing the 1 million miles mark on the odometer of his 1990 Accord. The man and his car are from the state of Maine.

He reached the milestone last Thursday.

A Honda spokeswoman tells The Portland Press Herald it’s the first time the manufacturer has documented an Accord reaching one million miles.

LoCicero says he bought the car in 1996 with 74,000 miles (about 120,000 kilometers). The former mechanic did much of his own work. The secret he says is following maintenance schedules, using quality parts and driving safely.

He swears the transmission and engine are original.

Now that he has a new Accord, he’s not sure what he’ll do with the old one.
