hey guys, just wanted to say HI to everyone here.. i might be purchasing a S within the week... its an 01 dark greyish gunmetal color thing / red leather with 54k miles.. the guy is selling it for 17ish.

as a newbie, i was wondering if there was anything i shoudl watch out for for an 01? or for any year for that matter.. i was able to drive the car, but i wasnt able to open it up much due to where we were... but either way, any help is appreciated! thanks!

1. Look for Vin stickers on the hood trunk bumpers, doors.
2. Seat condition, look for cracks in the leather.
3. Transmission Grinds 1-6
4. How was it cared for?
5. What kind of tires are on it and what size?
6. What is the condition of the top look for tears and check plastic window.
7. Ask what kind of records he kept, how often was the oil changed trans oil, diff oil.
8. Ask what kind of oil was used, and frequency of the changes.
9. Under hood condition
10. You have a legal right to be able to take the car to your own mechanic prior to purchase.
11. Do a carfax on the Vin, and call honda to see if recalls, TSbs were done.
