Alberta :)

I think only Ontario does emissions testing...?
Yes, seems to be the case. I knew BC did before but stopped in 2015 or around there. But I didn't realize Ontario was now alone in doing this. With the stuff that's preoccupying the provincial government at the moment, emissions testing likely won't come up for discussion for some time.

So my 04 RSX-S has 312xxx. Few months ago I went in to change my wheel bearing. Picked up the car went home and problem was still there and I was Pissed at the mechanic. So I didn't wanna deal with them again.
Said he didn't know what the issue would be

Last week I got my brother to look @ it. He's guessing the bearing wasn't put in properly. Ughhh. I think it could reach 350xxx no problem

I recently purchase an 09 Venza with 119xxx though.
Might just sell the RSX. Just sitting in the garage

I have a 96 Acura 3.5RL that has ONLY 455,000KM on it. I've had it for about 9 years.

I just read my Acura service manual and it says the oil should be changed at every 12000Km but I have always run synthetic oil and changed at about 7000km. I've replaced the driver side cv axle once. A rear o2 sensor. Never replaced the timinng belt but I open it up for inspection every now and then. both front calipers and both rear wheel bearings.

According to manufacturer specs it only drinks premium gas an it should get an avg of 21mpg but I always get a little more.

Overall Great car but the relationship is slowly getting sour because of her drinking habits... ;-)
With an interference engine a cam belt failure would be terminal on that car and according to the manual it should have had 4 belt replacements by now. Its a safety issue too as I wouldn't want my engine to lock up on the highway. In a standard you can hit the clutch fast so maybe practice emergency selecting neutral so its instinctive!

My 03 still going strong, drives smooth, no major issues and a few little ones easy/cheap to fix - not bad for north american junk!

We just turned over 235,000 km on our '09 fwd I4. Still runs like a top. Brakes have been done twice and shocks were just replaced.
