Default Should I buy a 1999 Honda Accord EX?

I am looking to buy a new car and I want to know what others think about a 1999 Honda Accord EX the car has 109,000 miles on it and I can get it with my trade in for about 7,200. Is this a good price?will this car last a long time? (Like into the 200,000 mile range) and if so what are some of the normal things that have to be replaces after about 100,000 mark, and on and on after that. I appreciate your input. Thanks

terrible price with a trade. its a foreign car so the parts cost a little more then a non foreign car. you can find a better car for a better price locally at www.autotrader.comalso go to www.kbb.com to find out prices of used cars.do alot of searching before you make a decision.

The Accord has always been a reliable, long lasting car. Mostly, you just need to check for basic maintenance items. You will need to get the timing belt changed if it hasn't been already been done recently. Oil change records would be helpful. Check the condition of belts and hoses. Drive it around a parking lot slowly with the windows down and listen for any clunking noises from CV joints and front suspension. Make sure heat, air, and power accessories work. Check underneath for fluid leaks. Most cars this age with this many miles will have some issues. If you can rule out major problems, you can use some of what you find to negotiate on the price.

Yes, that's an awesome deal! Just make sure to check for any problems whatsoever. If it is in excellent condition, KBB says that (under my zip code) the private party value is over 8000, while good condition is around 7500. You will want to:: -make sure that there is NOTHING significantly wrong with it-ask for maintenance records-if they have no records, ask them how long they have owned it, and how many times it has broken down-ask what they replaced or repaired on it at allif all goes well, GO FOR IT!!
