Super-modern (2004) Honda Accord Saloon Manual 2.0pez 177k £300 Failed MOT, needs ARB bush and shocker. MOT End July still. Sheffield

Recommended Posts

OK. this is still just sat on the drive, MOT less and will run out of insurance and tax at the end of the month. So before I try ebay *shudder* or car takeback (undeserving, it's too good for that) anyone want to make any horrendous low ball offers? If I'd just binned the tax and insurance off a few months back instead of keeping it road ready in case of sale it would have covered what I was hoping to get for it back then, so some remorse ongoing, but I'd really rather it went to someone who will use it.

save yourself from ebay and gumtree and bridge the fucker, other option is to MOT it, and sell for mega money. going on the prices of them you'd see £600+ this way. 

 

My accord was brilliant, I'd have another no questions, but with 3 MOT failures of my own and the loss of storage for one of my cars, the wife would probably kick me out..

I'd intended to test it and do exactly that, hence it still being here, but my post-surgery back won't allow me to do fuck all still, so it's just sat there. I even have an anti roll bar bush for it, so that just needs doing, + a shocker, + a couple of bulbs. And it would like front tyres but non-mot critical.

This generation Accord really does look good, before Honda messed with its shape by adding bulk to the wheelarches.

 

If the diesel Borat wasn't still hanging on as if nothing could ever go wrong, I think I'd give this Accord consideration as a daily hack for work, and the boot looks big enough to contain my saddles and tack for weekends.

Now collected and driven home (to a pre booked MOT of course.....)

The perfect day out was had yesterday. The trains turned up... On time and got me there, err, on time. The sun shone, the birds sang and Tonedepear and lovely family were waiting there to collect me from the station. Can't thank him enough for his kindness and consideration on the sale of his car. This place etc.

The drive home (115 miles) was a pleasure. None of the usual M62 horrors and the car performed like something a tenth of it's age and mileage.

No collection pics or thread because am hopeless at that, being too focussed on the actual collection, but it all went perfectly.

Welcome to your new home Honda.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
