Asked by Jun 22, 2014 at 05:57 AM about the 2000 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't know a whole lot about cars but I know Hondas are good reliable cars and I only needed it to get to work and back, about 20 miles round trip. I test drove it all around town including the highway a bunch and it was fine. I still wanna take it to a mechanic.
What are the main things I should have him do/inspect???

At that mileage, the timing belt needs to be don't very soon if it hasn't been replaced already. Definitely check all suspension components, ball joints specifically. 143k is around that mileage where if the car hasn't been had a lot of things replaced, many of the components in every system could be ready for replacement.
