Should I buy a 1999 Honda Accord with 207k miles? They're asking $3000.00. How much longer can the engine/ transmission last? I'm very afraid of high mileage... thanks in advance.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Cherie Watters, President of Sales and Marketing at That is a hard question, reason being you just never know with a car with that old and that many miles. What I think was is important would be do you have any information on the service history? can you have your own Tech check it out for you? even then it's hard to tell. Now with that being said I know people that have cars like this with 300K in miles and they still run great. Best advice I can give is have someone test drive with you and be prepared to make repairs if needed. Will it serve the purpose you need. I would not recomend long road trips.

Georgia Brown, Director of Education at National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) That is a lot of miles for even a Honda, however, a lot will depend on how much you are going to drive it and where. Used cars are selling with higher mileage these days, but I would take it to a mechanic that you trust before you purchase. He will be able to assess the car's condition, as well as give you an idea of how this year and model has done historically. Good Luck!!
