I would definitely get it for between $4,000 and $6,000 depending on the condition and model.

NOT $6k !!! A 97 Accord with average miles, 12k/year or 132k miles should be closer to $4k. Get the miles and condition from him and punch it into the car value section of www.edmunds.com.Yes, the Accord is a PERFECT car for a first car: very good insurance rates, very reliable, and good mpg. In fact, Consumer Reports rates it as one of the best first cars.
