1994 civic with 40k miles!

Is that a jump all over it or stay the hell away kinda car. No accident history one owner just 40 K miles in 20 years. Is everything on that car dry rotted or is it good buy

I'd be tempted to jump on it for the right price. You would definitely want to know if the hoses, timing belt had been changed in recent history, and if not take that into account.

Bottom line though is relatively low mileage should only be a small price premium, and potentially no premium if maintenance records are not available.

I would still buy an unmolested 1994 Honda Civic Si hatchback with 40,000 miles.

I had a 1995 civic ex with about 200k miles on it. It was a one owner car and was a great to rip around in and still get 36 mpg.

If you don't jump on it, someone else will.
