see if you can get them to 5000 or 5500 civics are know to last a life time but it all depends on how you treat it. avg. 250000 before any major problems.

Mileages on that civic are pretty high so I would steer clear of it but if it was maintained very well, it would probably last another year or two. I'm pretty sure you can find a car with less mileages than that for a cheaper price.

NOT A GOOD DEAL - 6k for any car that has 173,000 miles on it is way too high. Check out www.Autotrader.com for better deals on Civics in your area. I just did a quick search and found about a dozen Civics in my area (north NJ) that had less than 90,000 miles and were all priced below $6kA colleague of mine had a '85 Civic that had more than 250,000 miles on the clock and ran well - mind you it was on it's third exhaust system (original engine and manual transmission though). He sold it to another friend for $1!

Honda's are the best cars out there that retain their value and live for ever with just minimal scheduled maintenance.You ever notice how you always see ads and hear commercials for Kia or Toyota or Nissan to come in this weekend get a sale on new parts maintenance etc... but you never hear about them for Honda? Its because Honda's are built to last! I my 94 civic lasted till 130,000 miles on it till I traded it in for a new car!!! And over 100,000 miles is the average for all Honda's.

If the engine and transmission are original, I would not pay more than $1500. Anyone thinking their car has real "value" with that many miles is jerking your chain.That car is worth what it will bring at auction; nothing more.

Sounds alright to me. I would double check all the stuff for it, but Civics are known for their reliability and their ability "to run until the end of time"
