Default Is the 1996 honda accord 25th aniversary edition good?

it has 148,000 miles and no power windows or locks. The guy that is selling it works with me he is asking 3000 for it. I just checked kbb.com and it said it is worth it, any insight? Also it seems to idle a little bit lower than normal, is this an easy do it yourself fix? I know nothing about cars.

I'd go for it if it had power windows and locks; but since it doesnt.... the anniversary ed. means crap if it isn't the EX

There's allot more to consider here than if it has power windows and locks! First off, 148,000 for any Honda isn't bad. But the real question is what type of condition is the rest of the car in? Is the upholstery ripped? Is there rust? (If you live where that is a problem) and if there is how much is there? Has the car been properly maintained? (and are there documents to prove it?!) What is the condition of the paint and body? Are there scratches, dents, fading? But most importantly, HAVE YOU HAD THE CAR CHECKED OUT BY A LOCAL REPUTABLE MECHANIC??? If not, that should be the first thing you do. They may find that the car is really just moments away from disaster or maybe it's in great shape. Since you know nothing about cars, don't try to make a decision without consulting someone who can really help you evaluate what level of quality the car is actually in.
