That price seems way to high for me, for over $3,000 it shouldn't have any rust and should have nice paint! I'm on my 2nd vx, my old one I bought on Ebay for $1,200 with 200,000 miles and 4 years later sold with 250,000 miles on it to a friend for $1,300 and bought another one without a speck of rust for $1,100 because it needed an o2 sensor and a muffler so $400 spent on repairs and I haven't had a single issue with it in the last two years.
If I were you I would try to talk them down in price, or if you don't need a back seat look for a Honda Insight, they are starting to drop in price.
Rust is what will kill a VX that and ricer teenagers who do engine swaps, the engine on a VX turns slow enough that 300,000+ miles and the car should still be alive, everything else is pretty cheap to replace so I don't tend to care about alot of miles.
