Question about 1994 Honda Accord
1994 Honda Accord, 276,000 miles, what do I examine to decide to keep
and try for 350,000 or get a newer Accord? Most service was done at the
required schedule. I love this car and she still runs sweet and I don't
want a car payment with retirement 4 years away. But everyone I talk to
thinks that's too much mileage and I shouldn't take a chance. What to
do, what to do? I'm also sort of gambling with my last chance
down payment money if I decide to go for it. I put about 10,000 a year
on in city driving. What do the experts do in this
situation? I'm not a mechanic but I've been told the transmission
is good (automatic) so that's a start, right?! I know most people
don't want to pile this much mileage on but I also really hate getting
used to another car. Help! I do have some trusted mechanics
Accords are really good cars. I know customers in my shop that have 300,000 plus miles on some. If you maintain it well it should be able to go 350,000 miles.

Congratulations are in first order for maintaining a vehicle to run well that long.
Your dilemma can be decided by the following factors:
1) parts can become scarce for older car models,
2) increased need for service during normal use
3) fuel efficiency/power for newer car models have improved
and 4) Hondas are not specifically known for their longevity.
The newer compact sedans have increased cabin space, that you may find comparable to the your Accord's. Your dilemma is between cost-efficiency and sentimental value, and this is really up to you whether you purchase a new sedan or maintain the current one.
Hope this helps.
