    2K part ex for the Accord! That seems like a shocking price to me but I suppose I'm biased.

    It seems a bit expensive to me for a 10 year old vehicle, especially with that mileage. What makes it worth over double your newer Accord?

    I agreed, he offered 2.8k in the end for my accord (after me walking away, he phoned me 10 minutes later with an offer of 2.5, then 2.8)

    Accords selling (at dealers) between 2.5k and 3.8k for my year and model (based on a quick autotrader search)

    gut told me to leave it. Seemed quite desperate to get rid of it.

    Parking brake seemed very difficult to get off (wife wouldn't have liked that) and the biting point of the clutch was quite high. Dealer guy countered that by saying its hydraulic and their biting point has no relation to whether they are about to go! Front two tires needed replacing, air con didnt work (needs a regas apparently, i've had enough peugeots to know what that is dealer speak for) and there was no sat nav disc (again, I know what that means!!)

    Pfft - a definite walk away from dealer behaviour right there.
