Sounds like my dad's '03 Cultus. It would have covered ~520k km today if he hadn't got a Civic back in 2010. Right now, the Cultus is sitting at 330k km, and the Civic is at 290k.
It was consuming a lot of oil, so he replaced the valve guides and valve stem seals himself at home. I helped (mostly handed him tools); it was a great learning experience nonetheless.
