Default Would you buy a brand new 2008 Honda Civic that was left in an open garage for almost three years... the price is at 33% discount from 2010 prices. The mileage is less than 100.

There should not be any problem with it. Just make sure it will start and drive first. The battery may be dead from sitting that long and all of the fluids should be checked.

Sure, assuming it's mechanically sound and wasn't flooded (check for dirt under the seats). However, you will have to drain the gas before starting it because that gas will be bad by now.
