Sounds like a good deal to me, those cars will last you forever. So even if it has 120,400 miles on it, i would expect it to go double easily without any big problems. Make sure the servicing has been done, 120k service if it has one. Make sure the timing belt has been changed, it should have been changed TWICE by now. Honda recommends timing belt be changed every 60,000 miles or 5 years. This Civic has gone 120,400 miles/10 years, so basically exactly double the recommendation. So see if that has been done, if it hasn't, keep in mind a timing belt job with water pump and tensioner might cost you about $600-700 at the dealer.

Have a mechanic you trust look at the car first.

Sounds like a complete rip off to me, that car is worth maybe $3000 like someone else said. A 10 year old car with that many miles is likely to require numerous repairs and have high maintanence costs. You can get a much more reliable and 5 years newer Hyundai Elantra/Mazda Protege for the same price with 30-50K less mileage.
