Joe LoCicero's 1990 Honda Accord recently hit 1 million miles. The damage claims inspector from Maine calls the car "True Blue." He drives a lot for work and swears the engine and transmission are original. To mark the milestone, Honda gave him a new 2012 Accord. He still drives the old one.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And our last word in business is: true blue. It's the nickname for a very reliable 1990 Honda Accord. Its owner, Joe LoCicero, recently hit one million miles on the car. LoCicero is a car buff and a damage claims inspector in Maine. He drives a lot for work, and he swears the engine and transmission are the originals. To mark the milestone, Honda gave him a new 2012 Accord, though LoCicero says he still drives the old one. And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.

ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:
