Buying older used car--Better if there are replacements made or no?

Asked by Jul 29, 2017 at 04:11 PM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Just saw a listing for a 2003 Honda Civic LX with 150K miles. I heard these
were reliable cars. It has had consistent oil and filter changes according to
Carfax, with no accidents (at least none recorded) and one owner. But
nothing has been replaced, like spark plugs, battery, brakes, etc.
I'm wondering if this is a good thing or a red flag?
