Long-term Maintenance Report
At 175,600 miles, the car seems to have entered middle age, based on maintenance in the last two calendar years. Yet the cost is still pretty low.
Significant items from 2012 and 2013:
Figure 1 below shows what I've spent on parts and accessories (including tires) and service since purchase. 2004 and 2013 are partial years, since I bought the vehicle in May of '04 and it's only July now.
Not included are two windshields and front-end repairs performed after a 2006 collision, all paid by insurance, and one front axle that Honda reimbursed me for under extended warranty [more].
The large outlay in 2004 includes four summer tires, four snow tires plus rims, and lotsa Honda accessories. The only replacement parts that year were filters and such. Service costs for 2009 through 2011 were zero because I did all routine maintenance, including brakes, myself.
