Default is this a nice deal for a honda crx?

**** i am going through auto trader for this buy and i will have three days of owning the car to decide if i want it or not, during those three days i will test drive it and take it to get a check up**** ok i just turned 16 and i am looking at this 1990 honda crx, 155,800 miles, mint condition inside and out. there is no rust on the car and it has never been winter driven, so no salt or snow has ever tuched this car! the car is in florida so that y it hasnt sean snow, the owner has taken car of the car and has all the paper work for it (even the origion purchase bill) should i buy this car for $2100, will this car last a long time? here is a link to some pictures of it, thanks for the help,

The price is well below average retail value, so price-wise its a good deal. It is a 20 year old car, and even though its a Honda (which is known for being reliable) and even though it was well taken care of it is sure to need more repairs than a newer car. You could probably find a 10 year old GM or Ford compact car with less mileage for the same price.

Since you are only 16, check with your insurance agent how much it will be to insure any car before you buy. CRXs are sporty and are probably very expensive for a 16 year old to insure.

A couple other tips:

Always haggle. The economy sucks still, so take advantage. If they are asking $2100, show the seller $1600 cash. Tell him thats the best you can do. If he doesnt like that he can either tell you the $2100 is firm or maybe he will meet you halfway. It never hurts to try. Cash in hand does amazing things sometimes.

Dont pretend its a race car and it will last a lot longer. Make sure there is a reciept for a new timing belt. If there isnt proof of a timing belt being changed, make sure you get that done as soon as you buy the car. At that mileage and age you dont want to be on an original timing belt. It wont be cheap so factor the price of a new timing belt and labor in to your offer.

That's a damn fine REX man... and its an Si That is a really low price for the condition and miles... and an Si.

CRXs are very reliable cars. Second gen CRX Si models have a D16A6 engine with the best D-series block.

It looks like a nicely kept stock Honda with some additions, but its far from being race built, the motor is stock and if you take car of it and don't race it, it's going to run for a long time.

Dude, if you want that REX go for it, but make sure it's what you want and find out if there are any problems with it .. you never know, the price is really low.

My advise would be not to mess with it if you get it. It's your first car, so don't race it. Get a project car if you want to build it up.

Hope that helped-
