Miles on a Honda don't count as much as if it were a traditional American made car. I know Hondas are now made in the US, but they still have a higher tolerance for miles. As for the car you're looking at, it has average miles on it. It's had about 15k each year and that's right at the national average. I'd say if the body is sound it's a pretty good deal. Before you buy it ask the seller if you might take it to a body shop. Pay them to look it over and see if it's been badly wrecked. If it has and the frame is damaged then it's not such a good deal.

Not much for a honda, they can reach 300k properly maintainted. but expect to put at least 500-1000 bucks on stuff like good oil, new battery, tires possibly brakes to make it nice again.

That not to bad but like Always you wont lower miles , but it is what it is , need to see when the timing and water pump was change , if they cant show you they need to come down on the price the timing belt and water pump is about $375.oo at a local shop and about $500.00 at handa so just look the car over god and ask them about paper work on things that has been done to the car and try to talk them down god luck
