Honda Accord, Hatchback
#9 of 28 $10k + or - for an '89 Accord?
Aug 12, 2000 (5:05 pm)
Although having only 35k miles is a plus, I wouldn't expect much more than $4500 for an '89 Accord. They're not rare at all, I see 3-door Accords all the time out here in L.A. With the low miles you could look for a max of $6000 on a good day with a desperate, cash-laden buyer. I can't imagine anyone giving you anymore, even though Hondas are quite popular these days. Of course a very silly friend of mine bought a '92 Accord for $14k a few years back. I told him he got ripped off, but he didn't believe me. Now he's trying to get rid of the thing...at least he can't say I didn't tell him.

Are VERY rare! Very few were built in the final year for those. The LXi is the most desirable especially with an automatic.
Not a collectable, just a very nice car!

If you do want to sell your car, jemezbee, I encourage you to check out the edmunds.com marketplace. It's free to both buyers and sellers!

I think your grandson is smart in wanting the Accord over the VW. If you sell it to him, give him an honest fair market price as the folks above have stated. I drive my 86 Accord Hatch 5 speed everyday - bought it new in Dec 85. I also own a '96 and 2000 model cars, but in some ways, enjoy my 86 Accord more. I've used Mobil1 (full synthetics) in it since 6K miles and the gas mileage is still great. Without question, your Accord has more value than you can get for it in dollars. Take care.

Hi Virginia incidently the sei 2dr. and 4 dr. are the rarest accords of all, we did not get the lxi hatchback in Canada, but the regular 3 dr. hatchback is as common as nose,s.

Well it does seem that older accord hatchbacks are kind of rare these days... I don't think Honda has made them for at least 10 years now. Kind of funny, but the 3 door use to be the standard. I believe in its early incarnation the 3 door was all you could get. I saw a 3 door for sale here in Maryland a couple of days ago for $750... I almost wanted to buy it just because : ).

I have an '89 Accord LX-i h/b. '89 was the last year they made this style. Don't see nearly as many as I used to but they're still around. The body style is almost identical to the Integra of that time as well.
$750 doesn't seem too bad. Depending on the source they can still go for almost $3000.
