bring it to my apt and i will look it over, other wise i cant tell you if its a good car or a lemon. look good? repaint it, maybe some new tires/wheels. be all you need in appearance. interior? go have at it, seats, system.

last forever you say? change the oil, tranny fluid and the usuals.

maintenance is KEY with hondas. i have a 97 accord with 182,000 miles and it still runs like a champ. i bought it last year in march 2009. since then, i had to fix what the previous owner didnt fix. its all good, the parts for these cars are very affordable.
