Default Should I buy a 2004 Honda civic hybrid with 90k?

Everything is in good condition, I am buying it from a private seller who needs a bigger car for his family. It has a clean record. Price is $7000. Should I buy it?

absolutely not! the battery in that car costs thousands of dollars and it probably just about ready to die.

I agree with Greg P, battery life or indeed lack of it is the problem with older hybrids or electric vehicles. If you want one, lease it from new.

Big mistake i would not recommend buying any hybrid vehicle. Especially for such a high price, gasoline powered vehicles are better. Hybrids only go from between 1-20 mph, anything higher runs on gas. Not a wise decision you'll end up in a bad situation "Don't judge a book by it's cover". Hope i helped.

You also should compare car insurance quotes for cars before buying one, for example here - carinsurance.yoll.net
