Honesty is the best policy, right? This guy is trying to sell his car, and if I needed a 2nd vehicle, I think I'd buy it simply for this amazing ad...
Is your kid pestering you to buy them a car? Do you or a friend run into things a lot and need a car that can take a beating? Get this one! It's cheap, runs pretty well, won't be a great financial loss if you crash it, and will teach you or your child valuable repair and maintenance skills (like how to use duct tape). Plus, it looks so bad that your kids won't want to be seen in public with it, and will spend more time doing homework and duct taping parts back on instead of cruising around!
The quick overview:
-1994 Honda Accord LX
-???,??? Miles (Odometer stopped working 3 years ago at 215,000, so who knows).
-Have owned for ~5 years
-"Mostly" blue ("Sage Green" according to the colorblind guys at Honda). Hood is black-ish and there's some rust and bondo highlights.
-Lots of "personality" / minor problems (will attempt to list them all below)
-Engine works, brakes work, and wheels turn (it drives!)
-Lights work (you can drive at night!) Both high and low beam.
-Wipers work (you can drive in the rain!)
-Heater works and heats up quickly (you can drive in the winter!)
-One of the windows still rolls down (you can drive in the summer!)
-Blinkers mostly work (hopefully you know how to use these, unlike many drivers).
-No cracks! (Brand new windshield)
-Front brake pads recently replaced.
-Battery is pretty good, I've left the dome light on overnight and it still started.
-New ignition wires, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor.
-High-performance air intake. I don't know why, it was just there when I bought it.
-I'll include some spare parts like new rear brake pads, new fuel filter, set of new spark plugs, and color-matched touch-up paint. Can include a beat up, oil-stained Haynes manual too.
-Despite all the problems, it has been pretty reliable.
