$3500 for a '97 Accord, deal or dud?

Thinking about trading in my 2000 Dodge Neon since it has been cutting off randomly and recently cut off and wouldn't turn back on for a while... Think she is dancing her last dance if you know what I mean haha

Anyways, went a few places and the best thing iv seen so far is a 1997 Accord with 40,000 miles LESS than my neon... So the accord has 150,000 miles on it...

It looks in good condition, good interior, good exterior, peeling paint but thats no big deal... Only bad thing is someone jig-rigged a security system in it so there is a big nest of wires taped together under the dash (but I should be able to fix all that)

-I put the SCII on the Accord and it brought up no codes
-The Accord is an auto

The one thing I WAS thinking though is if I dont end up liking the car I can always trade it on CL, I see people constantly with like integras that they are just wanting to trade for a civic or accord, maybe I can trade for something better eventually...

But anyways the sticker on the car was $5000 *not including tax and tag*

We worked out if I DID buy it, I would pay:
NEON+ $800 up front+ $1800 in payments = $3,600 *WITH tax and tag included*

He said since its such a small amount to pay in payments I could choose how to pay it 6/12/18/24 months

Let me know what you guys think!
