Question about 1991 Honda Accord
First off, you need to go back to school and learn how to write sentences and use punctuation. Now for your questions, it all depends on what kind of condition the car is in and how much the seller wants for the car, as well as how much you are willing to pay for that car in whatever condition it's in. Overall, that series of Accords is pretty darn rock solid. However, you must also factor in the age and milage of the car and anticipate strange repairs that will come along because of that age. If you have the skills, willingness, tools, and/or ability to do some work on your own it might not be a bad choice. These are the big ticket items you need to have checked out:
1. Cylinder compression test - Will tell you the overall condition of the engine. Results must be between 135-170+ psi with no more than 28psi differance between any of the cylinders.
2. Suspension - Have it evaluated, or check yourself for fluid leaks on the shocks. Also, while test driving listen for any noise or knocking or if anything feels "loose". The ball joints could be bad, and a failure there could mean disaster for you. Make sure you find someone that knows how to check them...or just get them replaced if you decide to get the car.
3. Brakes - Make sure the breaks are good. Does the car shake when you brake? That could mean warped rotors, and that is a big job on those cars.
4. Exhaust - What is the condition? Midas will probably charge you $600 to replace the pipes if they go bad.
If everything clears in these areas and the car seems to have been well maintained, then $1500-$2500 would be a fair price. Higher price would only come with service records where you KNOW it was well taken care of...or some sort of warranty from the seller. Otherwise if some of those things don't check out and you still want the car, don't pay more than $700 for it. I love those Accords though, I have two of them right now!
