The site keeps giving me errors when I try to post. I shared about eight HXes that I found on OfferUp and Craigslist, although I think three of them were other submodels with HX wheels, or the owners were simply stupid. This is the only one that I think is worth considering, 2000 Silver HX with a manual transmission and 168,000 miles. Unfortunately, it has some scratches in the front end, although it should buff out: https://www.copart.com/lot/30801848

A silver HX with 168,000 just sold for $275 in Phoenix:


It looks like the engine was pushed in slightly. Had I been able to bid the minimum would have been $300, plus $384 in fees, and $334.65 to ship. At least $1,018.65 for a car which may have a good engine (and transmission). If so, I could have gotten my money out of it. How high would I have needed to go? What if the engine was damaged?

Exciting!

You need to register before you can bid and they say they require a day to process.

That would be a good thing to let people know before the last step.

I have never bought from copart, the fees were always too high for me.

Now that's a bit much. Since I found out what HX oxygen sensors cost, and I've had to replace a far cheaper one in my DX, I don't regard them as a great value. I paid a bit more than double for my DX, hail damaged but running well, everything but the windshield washers work, and fully driveable. $1k would not have been any great bargain.

The only Civic that I see on Craigslist or OfferUp that seems worth noting is this weird one:

Quote:
nice running cheap lil Honda Accord [It's a Civic]

We do a test drive and then we scan it with the computer and then the mechanic gets inspection to make sure there's no blown head gaskets or bad trans or overheating issues

Buy it tomorrow morning.
It only has one picture and all that it really says is that it has a clear title and an automatic transmission. They are asking $700. The phone number is for Deer Valley Auto Auction.

I found a rough HX on OfferUp and messaged the owner. Three days later the site told me they sold it to someone else.

They liked someone else's message more than mine and actually responded?
