That's great to know, I especially like the styling of the 3rd gen preludes. There's a pretty clean looking one for sale near where I live for $2000, at 280k. If I decide to look at the car in person, is there anything specific I should look for?I think it's a perfectly fine first car. Yeah they run slightly more expensive than say, a civic, but it's a nicer car. I had a 3rd gen that went to 400k, so don't be too afraid of km's. Just try to find one that's been maintained well.
And hold out for a manual transmission, even if you don't know how to drive it yet. It's worth learning!
I would hazard to say you're right on the money. The seller sprayed it down to make it look glossier, as older paint typically fades pretty badly if it wasn't always cared for. I'd avoid it, because finding parts for it will be a nightmare.If that's the case, I suppose neither car is right for me. Parts availability is a real dealbreaker for me. I'd definitely be interested in an Accord though. Anyways, might as well post the link of the Legend for future reference If I see another car with oxidization too.
I'm not 100% sure it's oxidization, but it looks to me that they sprayed water on the car and snapped pics before it rolled off.
