I'm Selling My Car – Who Wants To Buy?

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on June 11th, 2008 in Personal

2005 Honda Accord EX V6 4D Graphite Sedan Leather FULLY LOADED 29K miles


Private seller, NOT a dealer:

Original owner
Still under Manufacturer's Original 36,000/3 Year Warranty until end of July
29,000 freeway miles (I used to freeway commute to work, use MUNI now)
Clean record – no accidents, absolutely clean
Graphite Pearl exterior / Gray LEATHER interior
An aftermarket iPod adaptor/charger that hooks directly into the audio system, professionally installed (see pics)
Save $$$ – Honda suggests changing oil every 5000 miles (not 3000) and fill up with only Regular 87 gas (the cheapest grade, not Premium), as the engine has been configured to use Regular gas best

VIN: 1HGCM66595A071143, feel free to carfax it

Various points:

Very well maintained with all service records, performed mostly at the Honda Dealers.

There are no engine, body, etc mods – everything is factory installed except for the tint and the iPod adaptor.
You will definitely love this car, it drives really well and produces just the right amount of power for city driving. There is nothing wrong with the car, I'm selling it because I just bought a house right on a MUNI line and can't justify owning a car anymore.
Note that there's a small scrape on the left side of the front bumper, which can be see on one of the photos, but it's really quite minor.
Buyer (you) takes care of all financing separately – I need cash/cashier's check in my hand, again this is a private party sale, not dealer.

  • Car Extended Warranty

    Don't make the mistake of buying an extended car warranty from the dealership! Dealerships mark up the prices of their warranties from 40% to 75%. You can save a ton of cash and keep your car longer if you buy a car warranty from a company that specializes in sales of same – and you can buy them at any time, not just when you buy your car.
