Default 1997 Honda Civic worth buying?

1997 Honda Civic sedan, body has 176k miles, motor 126k. My dad has examined it and says it is in good condition. But is a 97 Honda civic worth buying? For 1800$? I just need it to drive to school and around town but I want it to last at least 5 or 6 more years until I get out of college and have more money.

If you like dependability. Good gas mileage. Cheap repairs. And durability. Yes. Definatly worth buying. $1800 isn't a bad price. But I'd try to talk them down some.

KBB says its worth $1,952, but KBB isn't always so reliable as its guidelines not rules. I would say go for it, its a Honda and that means reliability, its an eco 4 banger and that's about the best commuting your going to get unless you got a motorcycle.
