Don't buy it. If YOU didn't do the swap then god knows who has put there hands on it. It could be rigged just to run. Buy one that is stock or somewhat. OR something that has already been swapped properly. my .02

at the very least you, or someone you know that knows about cars, test drive before anything.

very good advise. Unless the motor was swapped by a cerified honda tech i would never buy a car with a hybrid motor.
