    I need a daily driver (50 miles roundtrip) and found a 92 Geo Storm with 60k miles for $1800... Anyone had any problems with theirs?? I'm also looking at a 94 Honda Accord with 113K for $4000... I figured the Honda would be easier to fix/parts, but is it worth the extra $2200??

    Thanks for the help!

    Damn, an 11-years-old Civic with over hundred and ten thousand miles on its engine is being sold for $4000? Now that's value retention.

    Anecdotally, I never knew anyone with a Geo Storm that had good luck with them and that was back when they were less than 5 years old. I haven't even SEEN one in years. I see a TON of '94 or OLDER Accords (BIG CLUE).

    Sorry, I stand corrected. Honda Accord. Still, over a decade old, over 110K miles and cost $4000? That's serious value retention.

    Yeah, I had a storm back in 93, but a girl pulled out in front of me and I totalled it after only having it for 2 months, so I don't really know if it was a good car or not.

    The accord has a new paint job and new AC unit and has all maintenance records, so it looks like the accord would be the smarter deal...

    How about trying to find other accords, altimas and camrys first? I shudder when I hear anything about a car being repainted. Moreover, have you been to Edmunds.com to check what an appropriate value might be?

    I don't now about that that much money, but in general Toyotas and Hondas hold thier value alot better than any other kindof car.

    Example:
    Just playing around on www.kbb.com (kelly's blue book) I found out that an optionless 89 Camry 4 banger in okay condition with over 200k miles was worth more than my almost fully loaded 95 mecury cougar V-8 with 130k miles in good condition.

    That IS some value retention, my friend. Another reason to buy Toyota or Honda.

    I went and saw the Geo yesterday and it looked like someone was living in it for the last 4 years... you'd think if you were trying to sell a car, you'd at least clean it up a little...LOL Needless to say, I'm gonna pass on the Geo.

    Yes, I've seen the Edmunds site before, but thanks for the reminder. I have really got all summer to find another car, because I'm gonna be on summer break for the next 2 months, then in August, I'll start my commute again.

    Thanks!
