  • 67,300 miles
The transmission on my 2001 Honda Civic, failed without warning. Luckily I was in my driveway and not returning from Canada on the freeway at 70 mph as I had been a few days before. Had I lost all power in that situation, as I did in my driveway, the results could have been catastrophic, possibly fatal; for me and other drivers. I now, having researched online a bit, understand that this is a well known problem with this car. It's disgraceful that it has not been treated as a safety issue. My car has 67,000 miles on it.
