1990 Honda Accord 1 Million Miles New Vehicle, No better proof of the merits of proper maintenance of your car by Joe LoCicero and his Honda Accord 1990. “True Blue” (yes, “she” has a name) became the mark of a million miles last week.

How can a car go that far? Kelley Bouchard reported in The Portland Press Herald in Maine:

LoCicero bought the old Honda in 1996, when it had 74,000 miles on it. Continued to operate with diligent maintenance, keeping track of every change of filling the tank, tire rotation and oil in a couple of dozen notebooks.
Therefore, LoCicero, Norway, Maine, is a model of frugal car ownership, buying used and then a good care of it. It does not hurt that he was a mechanic for 18 years before becoming a claims adjuster for about 15 years, a job that requires him to travel a lot.

Other details about the vehicle:

It was manufactured in Ohio.
LoCicero took an average of 62,500 miles a year. Drive safely, which certainly helps your car insurance rates.
The following manufacturer’s maintenance program. (It’s a good idea to keep track of what the owner’s manual calls for.) Post continues after video.

It has taken over 661 photos of the odometer. (I knew I was right.)
The car has the original motor and transmission, he says. Replaced the radiator, cooling fan and fuel pump twice, according to the manufacturers Honda Mile website.
Other things, like upholstery, has been replaced, too. Bouchard adds:

The fuel pump exploded at 741,000 miles, drawing laughter from their children when the car had to be towed.
“They thought it was the funniest thing that finally broke,” said Joe LoCicero.
Dear Honda Auto Group and sponsored a parade of people to LoCicero and promenade – named after its exterior color, and reliability – on Sunday and gave the keys to a brand new Accord 2012. Honda Darling True Blue Bangor brought to the attention of Honda companies, after the agency was LoCicero nearly 938,000 mark.

Meanwhile, comments on the special page on Facebook are investing in. You can see a nice video about the car in The Huffington Post.

LoCicero is believed to be the first person whose Honda surpassed 1 million miles, but it is the first car to reach that milestone. The Wall Street Journal:

Irv Gordon, who owns a Volvo P1800, 1966, crossed the mark of a million miles a decade and has become a sort of mascot for mileage by the Swedish automaker. In these days is directed toward three million miles, as described in the Automobile Magazine.
