Hi....welcome to the Forum


I would have no hesitation in buying a higher mileage Honda as long as it has a complete service history (not necessarily main dealer stamps) and has been looked after.

Although, there are two sorts of high miles....one is motorway miles which are superb and then there are town miles which will see substantially higher wear and tear on the car.

Worth looking at how its been used in the past and by whom (e.g. mum using it for school runs, little old lady to go to the post office for her pension, or a sales rep on the motorway.

Be in mind also that it is a diesel and they do not like being smoked around town.


Good luck with the purchase and hope you don't find anything untoward in the history. Let us know how you get on with it.

Cheers,   Trevor
