Default Should I buy my stepmother's used 2006 Honda Civic LX?

I'm looking to buy my stepmother's used 2006 Honda Civic LX next year. It'll have approx. 60k miles on it - and I'll be paying in the neighborhood of roughly $9500-$10,000 in cash for it. I know that it's been maintained properly - so that's not an issue - and I know that Honda's known for wonderful reliability if everything's kept up well.

I'm really not looking for a car payment - and thinking that this is a good way to go...


Also, I'm 25 and have an income of roughly 35K annually.

Thanks. I'm definitely interested in buying it - just want to make the wisest choice. I can take the money and buy something new by financing 7k or so - but I'd be looking at a high interest rate of 15% or so.

If she is willing to sell it, and it is what you are looking for then why not buy it. If you are just buying it to help her sell the car and you really don't like it that well, then don't buy it. You could always take it to a mechanic and have them go over it good before you buy it to see if there are any problems she isn't aware of that you might inherit in buying the car.
