Default A choice between Honda's?

On some advice I read on here, I have found the following cars on craigslist:'87 Civic 4cyl Automatic, 287k miles - $950'92 Civic 4cyl Automatic, 268k miles - $1000'87 Accord 4cyl Automatic, 168k miles - $1500

Of the three, considering the year, model, mileage, and price, which do you think you be the best deal?

Get the Honda cr-v. My friend got into a t-bone crass at 60 MPH and survived in that car. The other care was decimated.

I'd get the 87 Accord just because it has lower miles.

@Da Green Beret - Thats because he was lucky, the CR-V is not a very strong car for crashes like that.

Low miles mean nothing. Go for the 1992 Civic. Like previously mentioned, it is a better car and you will have at least one air bag. That 1987 Accord might look attractive but it's overpriced. You can buy a 1990 Accord for that. Also, unless that '87 Accord is the LXi model, it will not be fuel injected... it will have a carburetor. With extremely low miles, for the year, makes you wonder when the carburetor will need to be rebuilt or replaced. Low mileage cars can mean excessive wear too. If a low mileage car that wasn't driven far, will have the same wear as a high mileage car with highway miles. the reason? Driving around town increases the wear on your car. Freeway/highway mileage keeps the car constant so there's much less wear on the engine and transmission per mile.
