    Why do people destroy cars like this? A little attention, and she could have been perfectly usable.

    Here we have a Rare Honda Accord Aerodeck 2.2ies Auto estate, 142,000 miles, Most service history, 6 MOT, Leather interior, A/C cold, cruise control, alloys, PAS needs fluid, electric sunroof, electric windows front are slow and need to be guided into place, alarm, remote locking, Honda hard plastic liner( now sold), removable tow bar, tool kit.
    Listed as spares or repair, drives well, but rear lights are not working, PAS needs fluid and the front windows are iffy, needs filler cap, electric aerial broken, rear struts u/s, reliable and comfortable load lugger, regularly drive to Glasgow and get 40mpg in fact all my miles have been up and down the M4,5,6.
    Front pads are down to the metal, will reduce the price £185.00

    As for running the brake pads down to the metal...:no: :Nuked: :no:

    you speak my mind @Nels
    i can't wrap my head around why people do that to perfectly usable cars. I have actually asked a few people who were breaking some pretty good cars and their reply was the parts are worth more than the car itself so...

    have a look at this. .this Civic VTiS was for sale for under £1000 for a while and now its parts are up for sale. I was genuinely heartbroken. This guys seems to break all Hondas for parts.

    I'm not allowed to use bad words, so I'll just do this.

    Must admit I didn't read the full details when I made that post. It sure does sound like a rescuable car. Hopefully, someone will buy it and set it right.

    On one hand I do understand that some people specially private owners might think that the car is not worth fixing and they would sell it.. what makes me angry are traders who buy these cars knowing the worth and part them out.

    But their argument is .. they are trying to help people with similar cars fix up and source parts which are unbelievably hard to find..

    But that 1.8 VTiS Aerodeck ... :"(

    I reckon we need to get a donation page set up to give these cars new homes.

    We pick a few cars, all members vote on which one they prefer and then the car is bought with donations from members, fixed up and resold. :Niceone:

    Looks like its a victim of 'worth more in parts' mindset.

    Sad but unfortunately lots of people think like that. Hopefully plenty of people who are looking for a decent, solid but cheap car with plenty of years left in it will see it and maybe one will buy it.
