1997 Base

I was looking at this a while back, when the dude wanted 6500 for it, now he wants 5k.

http://greensboro.craigslist.org/ctd/1033778000.html

120,000 miles I believe.
Seem good?

I went up to the dealership month or two ago and it started right up, sounds nice, has a cold air intake and a nice custom shift knob.

Let me know what you guys think.

This one isn't going anywhere and I'll have plenty of time to save up for it cause it's been sitting there since September last year.

Re: 1997 Base

Looks clean.
Drive it and see how it sounds and feels.
I'd start haggling at $4,500 out the door and not go any higher than $5,000 with tax, fees, etc. and all because keep in mind, the car is 11 years old.

MAKE SURE THE T-BELT HAS BEEN CHANGED!

Re: 1997 Base

Hey I glanced at this one. I also liked the 2000 one they've got up there but that would be a drive I wouldn't want to make. Hope you get it.

Re: 1997 Base

i like the part how the guy says " the engine hasn't been broken in yet" the car has 120k miles, engines get broken in around 500miles lol, sorry guys just had to say it.

Not for a honda

Go drive it, then buy it. And you can stay in the red prelude bandwagon too, so it's even better!!

Re: 1997 Base

Definitely a clean ass car. I would take a look into it BUT

You assholes must be blind. I just read the ad and it says NO HAGGLE PRICING 5995 (CASH)



meaning he's firm. Its still a great deal if it drives good and is in great condition. Just lettin you know he probably won't go much lower if at all. You could probably move him to 5500
