Should I buy a 2004 Honda Accord with 220,000 miles?
I need help with the economics of this decision. I am looking for a used car at the 4K range. I can't spend very much since I am 21 years old in college and only have enough saved up for something around this range. It's been difficult to find the right car, but I found a 2004 honda accord EX for 4400 in great condition and I can tell it is has been well cared for, but my only reservation is that is has so many miles on it. There is an older 1999 accord with 150000 miles but its not in as good condition and I would rather have the 2004. But being a first time car buyer, all of the advice given to me has pointed out that you should never buy a used car with over 200,000 miles. Can someone add their input? is it wiser to get the older car with less miles, or vice versa?
