They call him ‘Million Mile Joe’

You want to talk quality long-lasting vehicles?

Nothing speaks to quality long-lasting vehicles more than the story of Joe and his 1990 Honda Accord.  Joe drives an average of 62,500 miles a year… that’s not a typo, it’s not a misquote, it’s the truth. For the last 14 years he’s been a claims adjuster in Maine, and he’s crossed Maine many, many, many times.

Want to know the secret to getting more miles out of your vehicle?  Here’s how Joe did it:

  1. read and follow the owner’s manual and maintenance schedule to the letter
  2. check fluids often (Joe did it weekly) switch fluids seasonally (10w-30 in summer & 5w-30 in winter), he also changed them every 5,000 miles… he never let it get below a quart and used the same brand each time
  3. never let the fuel get into the E zone
  4. used only Honda air, oil and fuel filters
  5. never rode hard on the brakes and changed their fluid every few years
  6. he also replaced the fuel pump, both cooling fans and the radiator twice
  7. last but not least… Joe gave his Accord a lot of TLC

Joe used to work as an automotive technician for 18 years, which helped him to reach such a milestone, but let’s not forget that Honda has a reputation of building durable, reliable vehicles.

Joe has taken more than 661 photos of his odometer… “A Million Miles in 45 Seconds”


Yesterday, Honda hosted a surprise parade in Saco, Maine, to celebrate Joe’s amazing accomplishment. The parade interrupted a brief press conference where Joe was scheduled to receive an oversized key to a new 2012 Honda Accord from Ms. Maine, Ashley Marble.

Way to go Joe!
