Update: Price drop to $11,900

Hey everyone- I'm looking to sell my 6-speed '04 TSX, and what better place to post it than the forums? I'm a new member, but I've been a lurker for a while.

I've had it for 3 years and 50,000 miles in New Orleans, and I'm the second owner, so we're at about 92,000 now. I absolutely love the car (she's been paid off for two years to boot), but my wife insists I get something newer and with more space for kids (which means the TSX Sportwagon fits the bill...).

I've been good to her- I did all the initial maintenance at Slidell Honda, following the expiration of the warranty, I started going to Firestone. I went with Firestone as their warrantly was good everywhere, and I drive a lot. Besides tires, all I've done is replace a CV axle and the AC compressor at about 90k. I did get bumped at a stoplight about 6 months ago, but about all it did was put a nice crack in the plastic on the back. That was replaced at Katore Automotive, so the whole rear is pretty much pristine again. I have an AutoTrader ad up, with the free CarFax, so you can see what I mean. More pictures can be viewed there, as well.

I haven't done any modification to the car outside of an iPod piggyback (both the unit and the iPod go with the car)- it was so nice as built that I didn't feel the need to change anything.

I want to sell this car to someone who will appreciate and enjoy it, so while the ad says $11,900, I'll come off that some for a forum sale. If you have questions, give me a call at 352-281-0434, let's see if we can make a deal.

I suppose I should mention this as well - I go to North and Central Florida a whole lot, so if someone in that general area wanted the car, I might be willing to deliver it as part of the purchase price.

They get their car, I fly back, everybody wins. That tells the whole story: how much confidence do I have in this car to drive it 500 miles?

Say what you want about a CarFax or the receipts, that's the REAL vote of confidence- that I'll drive it across 4 states to find a good owner.

was the car involved in Katrina? (i.e. flooding, etc.) I ask because it's an '04 and the car has been housed in the NOLA area...

Nope. I moved here at the beginning of '08 - it was actually the last thing I bought before moving out here. The AutoTrader ad links the CarFax- it was a lease in New Jersey, looks like a snowbird who visited Florida had it, because it ended up in Tampa, where I bought it. After that, it's been in NOLA, high, dry, and garage kept.

Thanks, Chris! So you did end up going with an 07- should be a blast.

Update on price, btw- my wife has hinted (ever so gently) that I'm trying to price myself above market value to avoid selling the car, so I'm lowering the price to 11,900 in the AutoTrader ad. It's now below the KBB for a "good" example. I may come off that price a bit for a forum sale (I really would like to see the car go to an enthusiast).

The original post will be edited to reflect this.

Sold!

Hey, everyone! Car sold today, thanks for all the support, both technical (over the past 3 years) and moral (for selling the TSX). If I do end up in the Sportswagon, you'll no doubt see more of me- but I think I'm going to have to see if I can stand driving an automatic as a daily driver. The jury is still out on that one.

Guess we will see.
