Default Is this Civic EX 2000, 175k sounding good?

I'm now looking at a Civic with new brake pads. new tires. new a/c, and one owner at $3600. I didn't check the carfax yet. (I assume no accident from the asking-price close to kbb value).

One thing I hesitate about is it has over 150k. Which I assume could be okay with a civic 2000 model from the fame of the car.

I'm planning to bring it to a mechanic I trust.

If it turns out an okay car, is a 175k car a reasonable buy for a college student also considering the resale value?

I'm planning to drive one to two years

That's a LOT of miles. Sure it's a great price but with that many miles the risk of other things going wrong are high. Hondas usually reach 200k miles so it depends on how long you're going to keep it.

Hondas our good running cars you can drive them well over two hundred thousand miles if you take care of them but this car all ready has over one hundred and fifty thousand miles which is alot and not as long as it was taken care if but for almost for grand is a lot of money at this stage almost at two hundred thousand miles your going to have to start replacing things on the car in a year or two I would pass to be honest you can get a way better deal for a Honda with less miles .

I have put 65k miles on my 94 Honda in the past 4 years. It now has 187k miles and runs like a top. you have to do regular oil changes, and fix things when they break it will last forever. And Honda parts are cheap and Honda's are super easy to work on. I might replacing the timing belt NOW before it goes though, which could be a somewhat pricy job, but you could try to talk the seller down the price of a timing belt job, and then I would say go for it, its not a bad buy but I wouldn't pay over $3k for it
