Want to buy a Honda, what should I get?

Recommended Posts

So I want to buy a Honda. I used to own a 1993 two door Accord EX. Loved it, but it died on me. This was probably 6-7 years ago.


Right now I'm in a pinch, I need to buy a car because I don't have one. My Chevy Venture (piece of crap) died on me and I'm really stuck not having a vehicle. I only have about 3-4 thousand to spend and I want something reliable. So I'm turning to Honda because I know they are generally reliable cars.


I really don't care if it's a civic, accord or prelude. A del sol is too small. But I'm hoping for early 00's or at worst late 90's. Checking Criagslist in my area, the prices seems to be right for those model years and my budget. I guess if I had my choice it would be a 5-speed Civic hatchback with power everything and cold AC, but at this point I just need a dependable car.


I want to be smart about what I buy because I would like it to last me 4-5 years minimum without a lot of fuss, if possible.


So my question is what should I look for? Any problems I should look out for? Any specific models/engines that are more dependable than others I should look for?
