Can anyone tell from the taillights what year this is? Which lights are on?

Right now none of the lights come on in my Civic...

I do not know why he took a picture of the HX without talking about fuel economy. He posted this for people who know what it is?

Then why wouldn't he know about this site, Fuelly, or somewhere similar? Why did he wash the car, take pictures of it on gravel, and stand so far away?

I cropped it:

Def-def-definitely not HX wheels!

He made the same exact post on OfferUp, except he took screen captures of his Craigslist pictures, with the phone the wrong way!

I wonder why there are not any pictures from the front or back, aside from one of the HX, and why it says $1,500 in one place on Craigslist, $1,600 in another, and $1,600 on OfferUp.

I guess they want $1,600.

What is curious is that the weather let up and I wanted to drive down today. See the woman that I have started dating, possibly check out some cars.

No, she drove up instead.

I may still drive down...

Ad says 1996. KBB for private party based on condition is:
Fair: $1223 ($627 to $1818)
Good: $1398 ($730 to $2065)
Very good: $1559 ($825 to $2292)
Excellent: $1763 ($945 to $2580)

Seems slightly high but the used car market is strong right now.

It cannot be older than 1996 and it seems to have fewer miles, although it says the engine was rebuilt. When? Do they have the receipts?

I see one minor dent and the windshield. What condition would you say it seems to be?

It is 9:43pm here in Arizona. Well, most of Arizona. Reservations observe Daylight Savings Time.

The more you know!

Is 9:43pm too late to ask about a car?
