Recent maintenance: New Optima dual purpose starting/deep cycle Yellow Top Battery. New timing belt 2008 (drove it very little since then). New alternator. Newer spark plugs, wires, and valve cover gaskets. New console and speed sensor. New water pump. Turbo muffler and new belts in 2007. New tires on front replaced in the beginning of ’08. I have all repair records. All window tint.
Well-maintained very fuel efficient vehicle, gets ~25/38 miles per gallon town/highway. Good work car, first car, student car, or basic point A-to-B transportation. This durable reliable car runs like a champ, quick and peppy, 1.5 Liter engine drives like an Si due to increased air intake and custom turbo muffler. This make/year/model is well sought after by enthusiasts. Fun to drive! Starts up every time. Very fun to work on, change parts, customize. I’ve owned this super good car for 18 years. I bought it around 97-98, it has been properly maintained with timely oil changes. I drove it on a road tour from Tallahassee to San Diego, to LA, then Seattle, then all the way back to Florida! Hondas are known to last well into 300k+ mileages and beyond and most cars of this year have more than this one @ 182k. This car could get plenty more mileage with the right owner.
No AC or radio (fan relay switch likely, and radio just needs rewiring, speakers still work). Like I said, basic A-to-B transportation. A few quirks and blemishes, mostly cosmetic. Some rust here and there. Some dents. Right side door has a dent, back bumper has slight crease. Driver side window is offtrack. You'll hear the right front wheel bearing case vibrates annoyingly, it's been like that for years. It's a cheap part, just hard to get to. Back tail fin is removed. Back hatch spring latch needs repair. *note: Hatch Door is loose needs to be sealed to avoid carbon monoxide getting into the cargo area, or else drive with the windows open! Driver’s side door handle and small outside panel needs repair, driver side door won't lock from outside, must be entered from passenger side when locked. A $700 Water Pump and Timing Belt Repair was done in 2008. A few repairs it may need: front left CV boot axle, front bearings, oil leak (probably valve cover oil pan, gaskets), could use some tires soon. If you have a mechanic buddy, Dad, uncle, brother or sister, you could probably do some of the repairs yourself (it might even be fun.) People love this car! I still drive it around town to run errands. If I don't get a sweet offer I'll just keep it for now. This car still has lots of mileage left in it! If you have mechanical skills you can fix much of this, or replace/upgrade parts to your liking. Mechanically, it runs very good. Engine purrs actually. I'm selling it because I hardly drive it. It's still a good car! Rough around the edges but still a great subcompact economy gas mileage car! I'm only the 3rd owner, bought it from a family, it was the grandmother's car.
