Default New or old civic

Hi,

i am looking into buying my first honda and i don't know where to get a used honda with low k or a new one. Part of my problem is how many clicks, before a the engine would need to be rebuild. I know that how the engine is maintained makes a difference. I am looking at either a 2000- 2004 civic with between 81,000-14000 kms

2000 isnt the same generation as 01-04.

IMO you should look for a 5th gen or 6th gen. 5th (my fav) is 92-95...6th is 96-00 (but there were some changes between 98 and 99). idk exactly how many kms translates into a mile...bu thonda engines usually get to 300k miles before they go bad. those mile #s are very low for one. anything between 50,000 and 150,000 is what id look for.

okay, i know that they are different generations. I have been looking at older ones but they all seem to have over 250000 kms on them. SO what wrong with getting a car with low kms.

i love my 03 and highly recommend one if you want something to play with and dont mind doin and engine swap for major hp gains, cause its hard to push a whole lot more out of a 115 HP stock motor. I would definatly recommend getting an EX though!

shop around a bit. you shouldnt have much trouble finding something between 75 and 150k miles.

what will you use this car for? are you using it as a project to make it fast? as a car to make a quick DD out of? or just as a transport from A to B?

ok so in general its not going to be tuned, turbod, built, or anything else that will compromise life span.

id say youd be ok with anything up to 250k miles.
