How long will a 2.0-litre petrol engine last?

Hello, I would like to know how much mileage to expect from a 2.0-litre petrol engine in its lifetime. My Honda has almost 120,000 miles done in seven years and I am wondering how much more I should expect.

Hi Mary,

I'm afraid there is no definitiive answer to that question. Not only is every engine different, the longevity relies on other factors such as how it is driven and maintained. Honda has a great reliability record though and its engines are some of the best. Assuming it has been well maintained there's no reason it shouldn't reach 200,000 miles without an issue - and further.

Hope that helps.
