Default Is a 91' Honda coupe with 185,000 mileage worth 1700 dollars?

The body is in good condition, all black and also it was manual. Also the inside was clean; should i take a chance?

no, not really. it would have to be super fast and super reliable with nothing wrong whatsoever. then maybe. i would only give you a few hundred for such a mileage old car. even though its a honda, it has close to 200,000 on the engine and 16 years on the body and everything else. by the time you finish paying all the bills to keep it on the road every time it goes bad, it wont be worth it.

yeah, Honda's are great cars and they will last forever. 2 years ago I traded in my 1991 Accord LX with 135,000 on it and i got 2700 for a trade in.

I sold my 86' accord 2 years ago with 277,000 miles on it for $2500. You always take a chance with buying an older used car but it could quite possibly be a good car for you. Have a mechanic peek at it, usually the timing belts are the main maintenance concern in Hondas, I forget how often but you might want to ask the seller about that one. Good luck I hope it works out for you.

Most decent modern cars, with minimal care, should go 200,000 miles with little or no problems. That said, however, a lot can happen to a car in 16 years and 185,000 miles, so unless you KNOW that it's been EXTREMELY well taken care of it's entire life, it's probably a lousy buy -- more of a $500. car.

No - even a Honda that old is only worth 1000-1200. I just bought a 1992 Maxima 6 cyl. automatic for 750 and it runs great.

( you don't say what model)we sold our 85 Accord, std, 186,000 mi for $3000 (in 2003), the kid who bought it is still driving it around. (of course it was spotless and we kept all the maint up, records and all)It had NEVER had any major work, everything (but the tires) was original.

I got a '92 prelude with about 119,000 for $3200. Like someone said, you might want to have a mechanic look at it, but Hondas are reliable cars and can run forever if they're well maintained.
