92 Civic VX in Upstate NY

http://rochester.craigslist.org/car/491125923.html

I'm tempted to buy it, but parents want me to wait another year before we 'need' another car...when my brother gets his liscense. I'd say it'd be an improvement over her driving the Acura MDX to work every day, (15-20 miles each way), but they don't listen....whatever.

Hope one of you guys can make use of this

Poor VX...

Primered, rusted, beat to hell, and overpriced. I wouldnt pay more than a grand for that thing, and I doubt anyone else will either.

Too much stuff has been done to this one to turn it back stock and still consider it a good buy. I also think its a little much and is now not a car that will give good mpg.

I would bet the car could be brought back to a high MPG machine as long as the engine and tranny is intact, but the price of the car is much too high and it does need a lot of work.
