sounds about right for a high mileage 4 cylynder. Cosidering it's a Honda, It should treat you good past 200k with proper maintainance

Sound like a good deal to me, that is a hard price range to buy something that won't nickel and dime you to death. Enjoy.

yes not bad, if it's a Vtec engine, and never crashed or had any accidents with a clear title, and the previous owner kept up with all the maintainence .... it's just below the KBB pricing so good find!

Good idea to go with the Optima or other dry-cell Battery. It might me a larger initial investment but it may pay for itself in the long run. I only use dry-cell batteries (3 Optimas and 1 Interstate) and never have troubles with dead batteries even in cold weather or pushing amps. Good luck.

Not the best deal in the world but you should never touch a car with more than 100k, asking for trouble as you don't know how the previous owner treated it and maintained the engine, even though Honda are good for past 200k. Get rid and try and sell it for more than you bought it for.
