Just finished getting an airbag igniter repaced on my purchased new by me 1997 2 door Civic HX which has 421,000 miles. It is my dog and forest roads going up in the mountains car and runs like new. I did do a engine swap at 305K miles as I found a used HX engine reasonable and got tired of looking at it in the garage and had a three day weekend to do swap. This summer I split the transmission to repace pinion bearing and all new seals. No rust, but that is Washington State for ya. No GTI, but still fun for what it is.
