One million miles is what regular servicing can get you.
In Tampa, Florida, the Honda dealership owns a CRX. In general, it refers to Honda’s past, when it built naturally aspiring engines and small, lightweight cars. But this CRX is different – it metaphorically went to the moon and came back twice.
The car went on display in 2015, when the owner hatched the dealership. Since then, it has covered one more mile, bringing the total to 1,002,474 miles. Or, in modern currency, 1,613,325 km.
