    Hi everybody,

    My name is Tibi and I will be purchasing a SH Honda Accord 2.4 i-VTEC Auto 08 plate in a couple of days. I've wanted this car for a long time now.
    I have just one concern with this particular vehicle, it has a lot of rusty bolts in the engine bay and on the bolts from the reinforcement rod, surface rust.
    Is this something to be concerned about?

    Thank you.

    Hi @tibi.cono Welcome to Honda Karma :Hey:

    This car has probably spent a lot of time near the coast, for a 2008 car I wouldn't expect much rust in the bay, personally I'd be looking for a better example.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the late reply.
    Please see a couple of photos with examples of rust. I bought the car because it looked really good.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks.

    That doesm't seem too bad.

    You can replace those rusted nuts and clips.

    Rust sets in as people don't bother to clean their engine bays.
