Brand New 1996 Honda Accord For Sale

August 16, 2012

1996 Honda AccordThere’s a 1996 Honda Accord for sale on Craigslist in the Central Jersey section. It has 36K miles on the clock and the asking price is $4700.

The car has been driven an average of 2.2K miles per year. Not sure if this is a good thing especially if those miles were driven locally.

According to the owner the exhaust, tires and brakes were recently replaced.

If this car really has 36K original miles with no mechanical defects then this is truly a bargain. Since the owner is asking for $4700 you could probably knock an extra 200 to 300 dollars off the price.

I used to own a 1997 Accord SE that I bought used from a local dealer. It was on sale for $5000 with 92K miles on the clock so I immediately snatched it away.

After a few years I decided to sell it. By then it had 155K miles and I sold it for $2700. I think I could have gotten more for it but I was in a rush to sell.

Not once in those years did it ever break down on me. These cars are about as reliable as they get.

I’m not a big fan of the exterior design, I personally think the 1998 Accord looks much better. But the interior dash and controls are nicely laid out. I think Honda makes some of the best interiors.

But regardless, this car at 36K miles is basically new, especially for a Honda. Buying a new used car doesn’t get any cheaper than this.
