Default Which accord coupe?

Hey guys I'm looking into buying an accord coupe and I found 2 listed for about 14.9

One is a 2011 5 speed manual 4 cyl with 50k miles on it

The other is a 2008 automatic v6 with 50k miles on it

Which would you pick?

Neither; I'd keep looking for a V6 Coupe with a 6-Speed manual.

Sixteen-nine? Yikes! Around here you can get a 2008 TL-S 6-Speed for less than that.

I think it has more to do with the fact that the v6 is rare and the manual is even harder to find in the accord model.

found one for 15.5 and one for 15.9 with about 75k on each I just don't like the idea of buying a car with that many miles on it.

For a Honda seventy-five thousand miles is just barely broken in. I bought our 2001 Accord last August with 114,000 miles on it; the motor doesn't use any oil during the ~7,500 oil change interval and is plenty strong. I wouldn't be even remotely concerned about buying one of these cars with anything under one-hundred thousand miles on the clock.

I'm reaching my mid-20s, the age at which quite a few of my friends feel the need to start acting responsible and "grow up." For the lucky few with well-paying jobs, this means selling out and buying a "sensible" midsize sedan. For those who want the practicality of a midsize sedan but aren't ready to say goodbye their youth just yet, Honda's got the car: the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe EX, and truth be told, being grown-up isn't half-bad.
