Default Is a 99' honda accord EX with 240,000 miles worth paying $5500 for?

I'm looking to buy a car. This one is in good condition...but I'm wondering if the mileage is way too high...

Drop one of the zeros and the price will be more realistic.

Although Hondas are great cars (I drove my Prelude 232,000) miles, 240,000 miles should be of concern to any car - no matter the quality of construction. As a car accumulates such high miles, you can expect auxiliary components to start breaking down. Stay away and look for something with less miles.

i own a shop and no,its not,that's way too much mileage for that vehicle to have on it,and for that kind of money you can find a much lower one ,i know those are good cars but there's no way its worth that much, not now not ever,its time for it to start giving problems ,and a lot of them also,good luck hope this helps.

dont fool yourself. That car is 8 years old with mileage out the wazoo. You could get a 99 accord with less than half that many miles for the same price.

Drop one of the 5's and you'd be closer to it's worth.
