Default Is this a good deal on a 2003 honda pilot?

im considering on buying a honda pilot EX-L (with factory installed dvd player). It has 127,000 miles on it and the dealer is offering 9,995 for it. Is that a good buy? I was also wondering if this car can get 25 mpg?the dealer gave me a copy of the car fax history and it has only been owned by one owner and hasnt been in any wrecks and has been in every scheduled maintenance.

It sounds like a fairly good deal if its clean and in decent mechanical condition. You can find the EPA for the car at http://www.fueleconomy.gov/

that's high mileage for a 2003...very high. my accord has 122k and its over 10 years old. but nonetheless it's a honda, and it's basically bullet proof. i think you can do alot better for your money, so continue looking.

According to www.nada.com that figure is in the ballpark for a retail price. depends on where you live and what options the vehicle has.My main concern would be when the timing belt was replaced or IF it was. It should have been replaced at least once and possible twice if the previous owner used it under conditions of severe use. Are you able to find out?Our daughter sometimes gets better than 25mpg with her Pilot. It all depends on how you drive and how much idling you do. Warming your car up on a cold winter day is a waste of fuel.
