Default Honda Civic question?

Why do i see so many car ads for 07,08,09 Type R Civics, I mean like most of them, like 90% have been driven under 40 000km and people are selling them. Are they bad cars so many ads for sale with like under 40k mileage. Im planning on buying one this month

Im sure if you look around most vehicles you see of those year models for sale have comparable mileage. These could also be cars that were in leases where mileage is governed in the lease. A civic is a great choice you should do well with your choice.

Because that is the preferred mileage for their age. It is less than the average mileage driven per year on a car. If it is less than the average there is a bonus over blue book trade in value, if it is more it is deducted from the blue book value.

As for Civics, they always keep high resale value, Hondas command the highest for all manufacturers because they are in demand.

For desireable Civics, I found that the most desireable are the 1992-1995, they have the most aftermarket parts are the easiest to trick out.

many type R drivers have their licenses suspended or their insurance rates go too high after motoring convictions because they like to drive the car a tiny bit faster than the law allows and when they do they don't use their mirrors or look out through the windshield

I've ran a few in my day.
One thing to remember is that the shorter, the better.
The best way to do this is running a string or something from the dash, down the sides under the paneling, and into the trunk. Measure that string and give it about a foot extra just to play around with. What brand products you working with?
