- This 2022 Honda Civic for sale in Texas has nearly 250,000 miles on the odometer.
- Its previous owner was a medical courier who regularly delivered supplies between Houston and Dallas.
- It’s listed for $18,999, which isn’t as cheap as you might think given its history.
A used Honda Civic for sale with over 200,000 miles on the odometer is hardly newsworthy on its own. But when said high-mileage Civic is a 2022 model that was purchased by its first owner just over a year ago, we start to take notice.
As reported by Tire Meets Road, this 2022 Civic sedan for sale at a dealership in Dallas, Texas, has clocked an unbelievable 248,740 miles. The more you think about it, the more inconceivable it sounds. It’s an average of over 600 miles per day. How can anyone drive that much? But the Carfax report bears out this owner’s driving-centric lifestyle, as it documents regular oil changes at the dealership, in this case Rusty Wallis Honda in Dallas. And by regular, we mean regular, as the Civic visited the service department just about every two weeks.Here we were thinking our long-term Civic Si was accumulating miles at a decent rate. . .
There are some questionable elements to the report, such as the implausibility of the car’s first 10,000 miles coming in a three-day period between when the car was first marked as registered and when it came in for its first oil change. But as some have pointed out, that likely comes down to a delay in registration data making it onto the report. Driving 10,000 miles in a few weeks is no more reasonable, but it’s at least feasible.
It turns out that the previous owner was a medical courier who made daily drives between Dallas to Houston delivering supplies. If that sounds vaguely familiar, you might be thinking of our story from 2016 about—you guessed it—a medical courier who drove around 200,000 miles per year in his 2011 Ford Fiesta.
There was also the story from 2018 about a woman who put 1 million miles on her 2013 Hyundai Elantra over the course of five years. At that point, Hyundai got involved and gave her a new Elantra to replace the heavily used one. And there was the similar case of the 2007 Toyota Tundra that racked up seven-figure mileage, at which point Toyota bought the truck back to study it.
Honda told C/D that it has no plans to purchase this particular Civic, but a spokesperson did say, “we hope its second owner will enjoy accumulating many more miles in it.” So, if you are willing to pay the $18,999 asking price for this Civic that’s, er, well past the break-in period, maybe this is your chance to break some sort of mileage record.
