Default Thinking of buying a '91 honda civic si?

I'm thinking of buying this car from a friend, it runs great but occasionally has trouble starting in the heat. Is buying it for 2,700 a good deal or no?

Hey , i bought a Honda civic si 1990 hatch 2 door a year ago, and after some modding about $1,500, my car is able to take out some of the newer car's teen's drive and think are fast. But for 2,700 and a starting problem? i wouldn't recomend it the shell is worth about 700 top's in perfect condition and the engine like 400 or less. So NO i wouldn't recommend you buying it for this much. Your buddy is trying to rip you off BIG time.

if it's really a SI it's worth the money. As far as it not starting when it's hot it sounds like you have a bad starter.















It really comes down to the mileage and how well your friend has taken care of the maintenance, like oil changes trans service ect.















The SI has a pretty good engine to work with, but it's really up to you....
