Owner puts on the miles, year after year
While an average driver puts on just 14,000 miles per year, Joe from Norway, Maine can do that in three months. Joe has been driving the same 1990 Honda Accord for the past 15 years, racking up the miles as he approaches the one million mile mark in the fall. Fans of the Honda brand Facebook page can keep an eye on his progress. Benson Honda, the leading Honda dealer in San Antonio, Texas, will be following his story since we’re extremely excited about Hondas and all too familiar with their reliability.
Joe’s not alone in his journey. Honda began keeping track of other Honda owners who reached the one million mile mark and documented in the million mile journey showcasing the reliability of Hondas. The Accord, Joe’s trusty Honda model of choice, was recently named Best Resale Value in its class by Kelley Blue Book. "Joe's journey is a testament to his Honda's reliability and how people have come to count on Honda for more than 50 years to get them to where they need to go," said Tom Peyton, Honda brand manager for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Joe has been documenting his personal journey to the million mile club with over 660 odometer photographs of his 62,500 miles per year. The residents of the small town of Norway are all too familiar with Joe’s mission to a million, and are encouraging him along the way. Honda has resumed production schedules following Japan’s tragedy and sales have been increasing at incredible rates.
