Default Would you pay $2000 for a 1991 honda civic hatchback with 200,000 miles on it?

I am looking for a hatchback to drive. Something good on gas and dependable. However, I only have $2000 to spare. Is this a rip off or do you think it is an okay deal? The car has never been wrecked, gets 35+ mpg. Thanks for your opinions )

A little over priced for a high milage Honda. Try looking for a newer car at your local craigslist. I have seen some newer model for around $1500. You just have to shop around, you get the best pricing from private owner then " car stealerships".

No. That car is worth maybe $500 and that's only if it's in excellent condition: no body damage, good paint, clean interior, decent tires, drives well, no engine noises or leaks. Average condition it's likely not worth $200.































If you want a Civic for $2,000 you should be able to find a 95-96 in good condition about 100,000 miles and a lot of life left in it.

Have you checked the car-fax on this car, a "never wrecked" car could just be someone trying to add to the price. Does the person have any service records or did they even mention changing the oil, spark plugs, new battery, transmission fluid, check the brakes, etc. For that many miles, there could be a lot of servicing needing done. I also would say it is kind of high for that many miles on it. Check on kbb.com and see what it is worth, enter all the options and everything you know about the car, including the miles and that will give you the best idea. Like the person before me said I would check craigslist, auto trader is another good site as I just got my truck off of there. Shop around a bit if you have time, a good deal will come around. In my zip code the car is supposedly worth $1,135 in good condition with no added features and an automatic. Certain features can increase the price but I don't know them so I just chose standard options.

It depends on the condition it is in. Like if there is a lot of rust, how good the tires are. I would offer a price somewhat lower, around 1500 and see what they say. Don't mention the 2000, most people will work with you.

I would not. Why? Because, if it has 200,000 miles on it, it's just about to break down.
