2012 2.4L 4-Cyl Special Edition 200K Miles

My 2012 2.4L 4-cyl special edition (5spd AT) just rolled over 200K miles today. I've regularly maintained it since new (bought new in June 2012) with no major issues to speak of other than the electronic power steering unit failing at 112K miles. It was not under warranty but Acura picked up 3/4 of what the final bill would have been. I am curious if there are any other 200K 2nd gen owners around? If so, have you had any issues to speak of?

Also, any recommendations for what preventative maintenance I should do now that it's rolled over 200K. The following is when I've had most recent services done...

Oil/filter change (Castrol Edge) - Today - 200K miles (regularly done every 5K miles regardless of maintenance minder. Slight burning of oil.)
ATF Drain & refill - May 2018 - 169,900 miles
Brake Fluid Exchange - May 2018 - 169,900 miles
Coolant Exchange - Oct. 2017 - 151,165 miles
Complete Brake Job (replace front & rear pads, rotors) - Oct. 2016 - 123,945 miles
Replaced Spark Plugs - March 2016 - 105,240 miles
Replaced Serpentine Drive Belt - March 2016 - 105,240 miles

Congrats! If you got it to 200k, you dont need maintenance recommendation from us. You are doing it right

my 2012 is at 118k, aside from oil, brakes, tires, battery, I have done the filters and trans fluid every 60k miles

still runs like new

That's awesome! I've read a lot lately of the power steering computer failing. Doesn't look cheap either, not too excited about replacing that.

I've got about 60k on my 2012 SE m6

Oil changes, 4-5k intervals. Used Mobil 1 with Mobil 1 filter, switched to Mobil 1 EP and OEM Honda A01 filter and have less VTC grind.
Clutch pedal needs lubrication every ~3 months or it starts sticking/ribbing
Replaced clutch master and slave cylinders but it wasn't absolutely needed.
new plugs at 50k because they were $20 and I wanted to see what the stockers looked like
New tires/wheels
Driver's seat ripped near right elbow area
Motor mounts apparently are fine but the car has a habit of bouncing arohnd/vibrations. Especially when letting go of the gas
Replaced the thermostat because the car takes forever to warm up in the winter, no change with new tstat, it's just the way this 4 banger is

Same here. About to roll 52k on my 2012 SE Auto. No issues to report other than the "tighten gas cap" light comes on every once in a while (even though the cap is fully tightened). It always goes away the next time I start the car. I just lost the front window trim piece on the highway the other day. It just flew off. I guess this is a very common issue on these cars that these trim pieces come off. It's $164 a piece so not cheap...

Wow..great maintenance records. I'm at 160K and have done pretty much the same things to keep the car running well. I just bought a new car (Audi...shhh) on Saturday and sold my TSX yesterday to a friend for their 17 old daughter. They know how well I keep my cars and I'm glad someone is getting the car that will take care of it. It still runs great...burns some oil, but nothing crazy.
