Is the 2004 Honda Accord EX sedan v6 worth it

Asked by Nov 08, 2015 at 07:16 PM about the 2004 Honda Accord EX w/ Leather

Question type: General

I know someone who is selling their 2004 honda accord Ex sedan for
almost $4000. The mileage is around 140k. Personally, I think that it's too
high of a price since the mileage is way above 100k and I would have to
pay for all four tire replacements, and other things. Anyways, I read
multiple reviews that the transmission failed once the mileage was above
100k. Since the car is at 140k miles, I checked if their were any recalls with
the VIN number because their were hundreds of transmission failure
complaints and it said zero. I'm just worried if I buy this car the transmission
will fail at any moment. Is a ticking bomb really what I want for my first car?
Plus, since this is gonna be my first car I am concerned about what I'm
investing my money into. Thank you for your comment.

CarGurus places a Fair Market Value of a 2004 Honda Accord EX V6 - 4-door sedan- with 148,409 miles at $7,563 (which surprises me) It's entirely unpredictable to predict if the transmission will go another 100,000 or another 100. Honda does not release production numbers, but there were a lot, so hundreds are going to fail. Pull the dipstick and if the fluid is a nice red/pink and has no burnt odor it may well be good for a while. No promises.
