I'm looking at Acura Integras and Honda Preludes on.
I hear when well-maintained, these cars will run forever.
So what's the MISC's take on used car milage?
Is it worth buying a car with 150,000 miles on it?

150k is high. Don't expect to drive the car 6 months without paying for some problem. I bought a BMW Z3 with 67k miles on it and I've had to get a few things done.
Look, have a couple of thousand dollars spare for repairs and new parts and you should be fine. Also, take out good breakdown recovery.www.prohormoneforum.com

While it's true 150k miles on a honda-acura motor is not too bad if the car has been maintained, keep in mind that 150k miles of wear means it will need MANY things maintained going forward, likely needs a clutch soon (probably has already had this done once), brakes, random parts such as fuel pump, alternator, wheel bearings, CV joint etc may start failing. If you are chosing between an 80k mile car and a 150k mile car to save $3k, I'd go for the 80k car knowing I won't have many surprise expenses popping up.
