hondas can last for quite a while

but i wouldnt buy this one as 300000 is very close to its expiry date

which may mean the engine will become bust and you may need a new one

A Honda is very good choice for a first car. But I think this one has to many miles on it. I would try to shop around and find one with less miles. If you did get this one, there is no telling how long you would get to drive it, because you would have to replace it soon.

thats quite a few miles but keep it in good condition and its should run. Change oil every 3000-5000 miles and change coolant every 30000 miles and you should be good.

Before buying the car you should also compare insurance prices for these cars to estimate how much you will really pay for it -
