I've found a local listing for a 2007 Honda Civic with 40,000 miles. It's a standard-shift.
I'm not looking for any recommendations, specifically, but I want to know - this is a very low number of miles for the age of the vehicle - well under the average number I'd expect; this car has been driven less than 5,000 miles per year (the US average is 12,000).
So, a few questions (which I hope will be relevant to a larger audience):
What potential pitfalls should one be aware of when looking at a car of this age with such a low mile count (For instance, rubber gaskets and seals, engine sludge, etc.)?
Are there ways to know whether the car has been sitting for a long time (via inspection, etc)? Are
Are there any warning signs that I should look out for?
