Though with 200K+ >>miles on it, it's more surprising how minor most of the breakage >>has been. Most. Not all. Well, I finally chickened out. My 2000 Honda Accord had 140k+ on the clock and I was tired of worrying about whether the tranny or the timing belt were gonna break first. Just traded it for a 2009 Camry and I'm liking it a lot. It's funny though. I've never thought of a 4dr Camry as a sports car. But the sales guy assures me that I'm just not going to _believe_ the acceleration this thing has! RonL.
