Default If I get a good deal on a 1997 Honda Civic, are parts hard to find?

I'm looking at a 1997 honda DX hatchback with 100K miles on it for for three grand - pictures look real clean inside, outside, under the hood.....I'm going to look at it tomorrow....but I was wondering, with a car that old, is it hard to get parts? are they expensive?

Civic's are extremely easy to find parts for, replace them and upgrade them. A lot of Civic parts are interchangeable some even from other generations. Easiest car imo to find parts for.

There's so many late 90s Civics out there that spare parts are commonplace.

Honda parts are the the most common and cheapest to get because there are so many Honda's around. Good places to find parts are www.modacar.com and www.autopartwarehouse.com. Ebay is also because there are so many off brands that make Honda parts. I know because i did and still doing the same with a 1989 Honda which is a lot older than your car.

Parts for EK Civics aren't too hard to find nowadays. Civics always have had good aftermarket support, which is part of their appeal.

Lot's of civic parts around out there.

Sometimes the actual honda part from Honda is cheaper than anywhere else and other times they're through the roof with prices. Shop around, but no need to worry about finding parts.
