If it isn't a one-owner car with a complete service history, I'd pass.

Engine? Manual or auto? I bought a 05 coupe with 88000 2 years ago for 10,333 and it now has 120000 miles. All I have done is changed the timing belt and spark plugs and not 1 issue. If u treat it right you can get 250,000 easy

Depends on the engine and trim level. All Hondas that are well maintained will pass 200k (except Passport). If it's a 4 cyl, it may have problems with oil consumption. Whether it's a 4 or a 6, with 110k, it is not worth $11,000 unless EVERY service record is available and the car looks and drives immaculately.

It depends on how well it's been maintained. 4 cyl have timing chain, V6 has timing belt.

My 05 has 255k with no issues. Maintenance is key.

I think I speak for everyone else when I say we were talking in terms of miles, not km. So that car would be good for at least 320,000 km, assuming religious maintenance. If I were you, I would get an EX or EX-L with a few more miles on it for the same or less price, but if you live the simple life, then I guess that'd be the car for you.

I'd get an EX-L for that price

Im probably one of the few here who doesnt need to see service records. I guess it helps to be in the auto repair field

I assume you are Canadian?

11,000 Canadian dollars = 10,623 American dollars

110,000 Kilometers = 68,350 miles

EX > LX > DX

You did not really post much info: Rust on the car, number of owners, any service records, what the price is in your local market, etc....

How long the vehicle may last is completely dependent on how well the former owners maintained it and how well you'd maintain it going forward. That said, an Accord will stand up to more abuse than a Ford or VW, for example. You're starting out with a good product that hopefully has led a good life so far.

I tend to agree with the bold sentence above. From the showroom floor to the present: odometer at circa 135,000 miles - two window regulators under warranty plus a VTEC oil sensor leak. Timing belt changed (but still on the factory original Iridium plugs).

The availability of owner records goes a long way.
