Honda turns 1,000,000 miles!

How's this for a Honda Success Story?

SACO, Maine, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- A Maine man whose 1990 Honda Accord has surpassed the 1 million-mile mark was honored with a parade and presented with a 2012 Accord.

Honda said Joe LoCicero, 53, an auto technician, is the first documented Honda owner to have nursed one of the Japanese automaker's vehicles more than 1 million miles, and he was greeted Sunday at Saco City Hall with a surprise parade and a 2012 Honda Accord, The Portland (Maine) Press Herald reported Monday.

"If you listen carefully, she's getting old," LoCicero said of his blue 1990 model, which he bought in 1996 when it had 74,000 miles named "True Blue." "But it's been an amazing ride."

LoCicero's car has averaged about 48,000 miles a year.

The parade, sponsored by Honda and Darling Auto Group, included Westbrook High School and Saco Middle School marching bands, as well as Biddeford High School varsity cheerleaders.

"Joe is a testament to what you can do if you maintain your car," said Ron Russell, director of operations for Darling in Bangor. "Thankfully, not many people do it or we'd be out of business."
