$4500 for a 15 year old riced up civic with 170,000 miles? Thats the most outrageous thing ive ever heard. Dont even think about getting tht car. For the same price, u could get something much newer with less miles. In fact, I bought a '98 Mercedes with similar mileage for only $2300

It all depends on how the vehicle checks out cosmetically and mechanically. I'll tell ya this, Honda's are damn reliable vehicles! In 2003 I purchased a 1995 Civic Hatch with 315,000 km's on the factory motor, tranny AND clutch for $4,000.00! This unit was given it's oil changes and maintenance on a lossless basis as it was owned by a mechanic, first and only owner. I drove this car for 5 years, across the Country twice! (Ontario to Alberta there and back) I replaced brakes and a windshield wiper motor during the time I had her, totalling $450.00. Ended up selling her to a friend, at which point my Civic had 430,000km's. He drove it for a year before running her into a tree at 110kmph... toast.

I would recommend finding a mechanic to do an inspection on this Honda before purchasing. Take it for a boot, listen for funny noises and feel the car out for clunks and smoking exhaust and so-on-so-fourth. Seriously though, 170,00kms is not HIGH MILES for a Honda. As I have three Honda's right now and none of them have that low of KMS and they all drive perfectly. In fact, my 89 Civic SI is pushing 20 pounds of boost and 350WHP out of a B18B1 91 IntegraGSR motor which has 290,000km's on it. I race this car on the track on a regular basis redlining at 10.5RPM NON-VTEC.

My 2000 Civic SI has 250,000km's and is my daily driver and in the 3 years I've owned it I have replaced a $40 CV Joint..

The price may be a 'little' steep but if this Civic is RUST-FREE and is in great shape it is most definitely worth what he is asking. If the Civic has a little rust or burns a lil blue smoke, I would offer him $3,800.00. But MINT definitely worth anywhere from $4,000 - $5,000.

Hope this helps my friend. Cheers
