Honda Accord reaches 1 million miles

Do you think 100,000 miles is a lot for a car? How about 1 million miles? Sounds crazy right! Well Joe LoCicero, from Norway, Maine, has reached this milestone in his 1990 Honda Accord today. Way to go Joe!

You are probably wondering how Joe got to 1 million miles. Well he drives an average of 62,500 miles a year, while the normal driver will only put 15,000 miles a year on an odometer. Joe has been working as a claims adjuster for over 14 years all over the state of Maine and New England. “Usually I feel like a human ping-pong ball crossing the state,” remarks Million Mile Joe.

These 62,500 miles every year are not hard miles for Joe's Honda Accord. He drives responsibly and with care. He does not speed, and uses cruise control. He's only gotten one ticket over his entire million mile journey! If he is tired, he makes sure to rest. To keep his mind alert he listens to conservative talk radio in his Accord.

Good interview with Joe. It's quite an accomplishment and I can't believe there are many cars that have hit a million miles. By the way, imagine how much this guy takes home annually if his company reimburses him by the mile. At 62,000 miles a year this year he stands to make $30,000 if his company pays him the IRS rate!
Thank Keith! I guess I should become an adjuster! :)
How did you get to be this good? Its amazing to see someone put so much passion into a subject. Im glad I came across this. Im glad I took the time to read on past the first paragraph. Youve got so much to say, so much to offer. I hope people realise this and look into your page. =-=
Hey, most likely might be above situation however it in any case, trying to find scouting more or less web site the bootcamp to become totally very much cool. I am only constructing a fresh page and so battling for it to be bode well, once we place item my wife and i spoil it. Where not easy was indeed they to start net? May possibly well person just like me without worrying about experience complete the work, together with develop residence replace pages and posts while avoiding endangering this particular aquatic treadmill? <a href="http://viagrakaufende.de/products/viagra.htm">viagra bestellen</a>
100k is not a lot for a car, my old Honda Accord was at around 150k so I know these cars can go on for a long time but one mil is really incredible. I'm far from an expert though so I didn't baby my car as much as Joe did. Goes to show that auto care makes all the difference. Most people are not that dedicated though to follow precisely by the auto manual.
I just bought a 91 Honda Accord with 250k miles. It's like a challenge to keep the car alive while spending the least amount of money on it possible. Oh, and I was poor. My Taurus was totaled when I got hit by a Silverado, so I decided to get something that doesn't guzzle so much gas. I hope I can make it to 400k.
