Which is better to buy a used 2009 or 2012 Honda Civic Coupe EX when they both have 45,000 miles and the asking price of $12,000?

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I've always thought the lower miles a car was driven per year was the better choice
~ but now I'm not sure.

All depends on how it was maintained and condition.


Thanks Mark for getting back to me. These two cars are almost identical except for the year. According to carfax ~ each had oil changes + maintenance as suggested by Honda; both are precertified by their respective dealer; both had one owner; both were originally purchased in NY and now are at NY dealers.

Drive both, but the 2012 is priced correctly, the 2009 is worth closer to $10K. A dealer can ask anything they like.
