The 200SX sold, but good news! I found a car on OfferUp before finding a scammer!

Honda Civic LX. 5 speed. Runs good. Leaks a little oil but manageable with no issues.
If you need to manage it, how many times do you need to top off between oil changes?

I messaged the poster.

I do not know about the back or interior, but so far it looks better than either of my cars and has fewer miles!

28/35. The EPA says that it would cost another $50 per year compared to my HX.

Here is an automatic 2008 with some damage, an autotragic transmission, and 264,000 miles: Honda Civic 2008 For Sale - $1,700

That Civic looks reasonable. Would be great if the oil wasn't coming out of the rear main seal, everything else is relatively easy to fix or get to.

Fill the oil and check the gas!

When I had the pre-purchase inspection for my Civic the mechanics said that it leaked from the rear main seal and told me to just top off the oil periodically and have the seal changed when I had the timing belt replaced. They said there was a larger timing belt kit that included the rear main seal.

I wanted to replace the timing belt myself, but I was nervous about replacing the timing belt for the first time on my only car. There had been places where you could work on your own car, but one place stopped doing it, and I had them do everything. I wasn't happy with them, but they seemed to do good work.

They didn't give me an estimate. They said that it could cost as much as X, as little as Y, or maybe Z, which was in the middle, but they promised to call and let me know what it needed before starting work. I did not hear back, so I followed up.

"We're all done!"
"You said that you would call me before you started! How much work did she end up needing?"
"All of it!"

Good times.

I have not heard back about the 2001 Civic. How bad do you think the 2008 hybrid is? Some claim that traction batteries do better the more they are used, which is allegedly why Teslas and taxis go for so long. 264,000 miles in 12 years isn't excessive?

Everybody knows that is 24,000 miles a year!

Everybody's favorite WatchJRGo bought an HCH and this one has the line "Confound it! The batteries are dead!" at the end of the intro:

He bought a 2004 for $1,100, but it had 9 engine faults and 5 hybrid ones.

He didn't figure out all of the problems:
That is not encouraging!

The '06 and up HCH only came with a belt+pulleys style CVT. Yay, 2 major failure points! I'd avoid it.

My parents had an '09 that they gave to my brother. I think it's on its 3rd battery.

I tried to talk thm out of buying it.

Kind of back on-topic--sort of

$2,000 Prius--no questions asked.

I, for one, encourage questions!
