Wow. All depends on price and condition. If it was well maintained and not driven by a lead foot, then i guess. How much do they want? even in mint condition, I wouldn't pay more than 1500. If it's in an area that's cold - or where they salt the roads in the winter, then be sure to take a real good look under the car. does it smoke when it starts? does it drive well? do you know anything about cars? can you have a friend/family that does and is willing to test drive it with you? Nothing is worse that spending a ton of hard earned money on a car that craps out on you a month after you buy it. Good luck!!

Let's just say if a Honda/Acura is maintained they can and will exceed the 200,000 mile barrier. Find out about service records but be warned that other issues can creep up such as A/C and suspension. The Cash 4 Clunkers program has driven up the price of most used cars and hit hardest were the older cars. If condition is good I would say 2-3 K.

its never a really good idea to buy a car with mileage that high... you should be able to find something with lower mileage... and if you feel that you really must buy it make sure everything works before you buy it and you should also try to get it for around like 1500 mabye 2000 dollars if its in good shape. Just tell the seller that 200,000 miles is almost dead (even if its not).
