Is this a VX?
This is a '96 civic hatchback for sale with 150k miles and the owner hasn't been available yet. I'm curious if this is a VX, and if it might be worth close to the asking price of $2900 in a good condition.

If it isn't a VX, what is it, as the shape looks similar, and what might it be worth?

Last year for the VX was 1995.

VX was replaced by the HX for that generation. HX was only available as a coupe. Looks like the hatch for that generation was either CX or DX according to Wikipedia.

As far as the price goes, that'll partially depend on the local market. If its unmolested/minimally molested, seems like its in good shape, and a manual, I would say that $2900 would be an ok price, neither good or bad.

Do you have the VIN? That should tell you the exact model, and doing a CarFax or the equivalent is always a good idea. Years ago, someone on here gave us a link to get free CarFaxes, but I was not able to get that to work. I believe that you can do a basic search through the government for next to nothing.

Mine is newer, but with more miles, and it is indeed an HX. The Blue Book is just over $2,000, but it seemed like every car that I see on Craigslist is well over KBB. As I often mention, I had five mechanics standing under my car telling me that it was in great shape. I probably could have talked him down from $2,700, but he actually came down $150 because the fender is damaged. I think that $2,900 is high, but maybe your market is substantially different than mine.

Isn't haggling part of the car buying experience? :)
