go test drive it first, u might not even like it during testing. Ask them if you can take it to accura/honda for a check up report.

GOODLUCK, it is a very good price if there is no mech problem.
Call me crazy, but I suspect there is a reason it is that price

right, most likely due to the car history.
Good luck!

If you want to, try to confirm the safety :P the fact that they stated it their ad, they should be able to include it with the price or else that would be misleading the consumers.
I'm staying far away from this one. Don't you find that 12k for frontal repair kinda strange? That could possibly be a brand new engine and suspension. Along with headlightals. Might explain its clean mint appearance.

Are forums just filled with negative people? Simple question ... Is it a safe buy? How does me being insecure come into play? Omg. Why even bother posting discussions anymore?
Well at least we agree on something...why bother posting this ridiculous discussion when is obvious you already did your homework and then proceed to threatening a member of this site. So, who is the negative here smacking boy?

That's true. It is really hard to know the real condition until you see it in person and have someone with mechanical knowledge to assess it.
Good luck!

Dropped 1 k from last week. I was curious and then looked at the history. Figured you guys would find it interesting.

No, probably not.

Typically RFD buyers are smart buyers and would pass on this POS without a second thought.

Honestly, it's a $4k 13 year old car. If it looks good, is safetied and is given an ok by a mechanic, who cares about the history? It's not like the next guy to buy it for $1000 or the scrap yard is going to care. In the sub $5k class, I would say it's much more important for it to be reliable platform and to be in good current shape.

Hence why it's not in the "hot deals" section. Discussion people. Discussion. It's up for discussion.

So a 12 k repair on a 10 year old car in 2014 might not be a bad thing? Possibly. So you would suggest a mechanic do a fine comb check to make sure it's ok.

It is a 13 year old car. Why would it ever be in the hot deals section? Don't be silly.

Look, I am sorry no one else thinks this is a good buy, but that is reality. Take it or leave it, but don't expect a lot of discussion on this car. Positive or negative.

Hot deals are where all the"smart buyers" are. We will discuss with or without you. It's my tread anyway.

Hey you said it. Smart buyers would not buy this POS.

By all means, discuss away.

Good catch. Doesn't the airbag light stay on when the key has one turn and door is open? I'm not sure.
