Default 93 accord lx?

im looking at buying a 93 honda accord lx coupe 5spd with 130k miles on it. I know thats nothing for a honda but it has had several owners and i dont know how they maintained it. Considering it runs fine now, if i buy it and maintain it well can i still get say abother 100k out of it? i know this is a very vague question but any answer will help..like how long do the trannies usually last in them?

we sold our 95 Accord LX in 2004 @195,000 miles...(only owners, all service doc's, NO problems and same clutch) it's still on the road...a teenager bought it.If it's had all it's service's and it's still not dripping oil and the clutch isn't burned or squeeking (from a bad throwout bearing) then it's probably good to go for another 100,000-150,000 miles.Have a mechanic look at it BEFORE you buy.

buy it and give it a good tune up,you can easily get another 100k out of it, i have a 92 and the same was going on with it but it runs fine now, just givde it a fresh tune up and change all fluids.

Yes just get it checked out. Honda's are good cars mine had 238,000+ miles on it and I drove it 6 hours and back and it did great(and it's still running). They are GREAT on gas mileage, well mine is, it gets about 30-35 mpg. Usually as long as you keep them tuned up they are good cars

93 Accord EX-R, with 402,000km, still going strong with a cracked main exhaust pipe

The early 90s Hondas will last, only the body rusts aka skin cancer that affect these cars
