- 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 $17,899, 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 in itself. But when the high-mileage Civic is a 2022 model purchased by its first owner just over a year ago, we start to take notice.
As reported by Band meets road, this 2022 Civic sedan for sale at a Dallas, Texas dealer has covered an incredible 248,740 miles. The more you think about it, the more unthinkable it sounds. That’s an average of over 600 miles a day. How can someone drive so much? But the Carfax report confirms this owner’s driving-centric lifestyle, as it documents regular oil changes at the dealer, in this case Rusty Wallis Honda in Dallas. And by regular we mean regularsince the Civic visited the service department about every two weeks. Here we thought 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 the time the car was first marked as registered and when it entered for his first oil change. But as some have pointed out, this likely amounts to a delay in registration data making it into the report. Driving 10,000 miles in a few weeks is no longer reasonable, but at least it’s doable.
It turns out the previous owner was a medical courier who ran daily between Dallas and Houston delivering supplies. If this sounds vaguely familiar, you might be thinking of our story from 2016 about—you guessed it—a medical courier who put about 200,000 miles a year in his 2011 Ford Fiesta.
There was also the 2018 story about a woman who put 1 million miles on her 2013 Hyundai Elantra over the course of five years. Hyundai got involved at that point 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 tells C/D that he has no plans to acquire this particular Civic, but a spokesperson did say, “we hope its second owner will enjoy putting many more miles on it.” So, if you’re willing to pay the $17,899 asking price for this Civic that’s, er, well past its break-in period, this might be your chance to break some mileage record.
