    Before I got promoted to my work-from-home position I was driving 50 miles to work each way. I worked downtown in a city but lived among farms in the next county over.

    Is that your front yard? Very cool if so. I live in a dense suburb and miss living out in the country or at least not being able to see into others' windows and being surrounded by their fenced-in barking dogs.

    I hope that Honda is as good to you as our high-mileage ones have been to us. I would buy a 2005 Honda with 185K with no hesitation if there were no obvious red flags. My wife and I have owned three Hondas with over 200K (and still have one) and they just keep going and going like the Energizer bunny.

    I know, I just find the difference staggering.

    It's the big upside for importing jdm cars.

    Anyway, did an alternator test after the first set of headlights and passed that fine.Tried the am radio trick to hear if it was doing anything on the road and didn't really hear anything, so thinking it's just battery.

    Cars in Japan can also do a lot of miles as it's not a small country. But something like 185K miles on a 15 year old would still be rare. 185K km would be far more common.

    So voltage regulator decided to give me hell all week and the alternator died itself today.

    Interestingly enough, driving it with low voltage it seems to turn off vsa and abs boy it's a different vehicle under direct control
