What year? Honda didn't start warning of engine damage until the '05 model
year. Prior to that they said regular gas would just result in decreased
performance.

Also, is this an auto or a manual? Manuals are more susceptible to engine
damage because too many people shift at too-low RPMs.

If the engine runs well and does not knock or rattle on light acceleration,
then you should be fine provided you use premium gas.

Used cars are a real minefield. And the mines are always planted by
clueless previous owners.
