$8000 - $9000 to spend

Hey guys, my son is going to go into his senior year and the crappy car that he bought is not handling his aggressive way of driving. If you are in the state of Washington, i am looking for an Accord 1998 or up with less than 75000 miles for $9000. However, if you are out of the state of washington, i am willing to spend $8000 (not $9000 because of $1000 shipping ) for Accord 1998 or up with less than 75000 miles on it. A prelude with also do well. It doesn't really matter if it is modded or not. however, a v-6 will be helpfull in the hilly area that i live in. Also, i would prefer an auto because my son has trouble with f*****g up the clutch. Thanks for your help.

if you know your son drives aggressively, I honestly think you should avoid these cars. Honda V6/autos don't hold up these days and only the 00-01's come with 7yr/100k extended tranny warrantys even though all years are having significant tranny issues.

I'd suggest considering a 95-99 Maxima auto, or even a Camry V6 auto. Both of those have pretty bulletproof powertrains that will hold up to high mileage and at least moderate abuse. Low/mid-range torque is a lot better in those cars also than the Honda. (starts putting on flame suit )
