You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here - carquotes.fateback.com

- here's a good website to look for real good, affordable and quality vehicles from official government auctions!

I bought my Honda Accord for just $2250 with a milage of 5,270!
And it's been already a year I'm riding my car and it's still doing well! I've recommended it to my friends and all of them are enjoying their used cars and have no problem with it!

well with all the after market stuff on it i would say it sounds like a good deal. be sure to ask about the transmission and whens the last time if ever he flushed it. then check the transmission oil to make sure its full and should be a pinkish red color.

Dont ask. WRITE and SIGN.

Has it been in any accidents?
How have did you drive the vehicle?
Was it inspected and maintained regularly?
Are there any issues that you are currently aware of?

When you test drive it,

Red line it a couple times. How does it react to that?
Does it idle nicely?
Does it feel like it has the acceleration it should have?
How does it handle?
How does it take a bump?
How much is left on the tire tread?
How dirty is the oil at that point?
Do the breaks feel right?

I mean, there is a tonne more. I am sure your mechanic family can provide you with more help regarding this than i can.

Also:
The base model of that car is worth less than 2,000 resale, why are you paying 4?
Note that after market pieces add ABSOLUTELY NO value to the car what-so-ever. In fact, they actually degrade the cars value (to a dealership that is)
