To manage expectations, under normal circumstances we would never have a reason to feature a twenty-year-old Honda Accord sedan on GuysWithRides.  However, if you’ve ever experienced the “pleasure” of teaching your kids how to drive, you’ll wish this 2000 Honda Accord DX sedan equipped with a second Driver’s Ed brake pedal just listed on Craigslist in Newburgh, New York was for sale the day your kid earned their driver’s permit.  The current owner of this otherwise twenty-year-old Accord with nearly 200K miles on the clock is currently asking $2,500, which based on the NADA Guides Online Classic Car Valuation Tool falls on the less expensive end of the “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range of $1,600, $2,600, and $3,725, respectively.  While a great idea to have this car for training your kid how to drive, this Accord has a slippery slope.  Once they earn their license, you can never let them drive off on their own with this car. Why?  Well, sixteen-year-old hoodlums being who they are (either male or female), the first friend who calls “Shotgun” in your kid’s Accord will not be able to resist the urge to press the second pedal suddenly on your unsuspecting son or driver.  As long as you keep that in mind, you can’t go wrong with what appears to be a well-maintained Accord.  Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“I bought this 2000 Honda Accord for my son to learn how to drive, it was super helpful because it has a second brake pedal on the right hand side as you can see in the picture. So it made both of us feel much safer in teaching him! It has a VTEC engine and does not have any rust and the interior is very clean. No dents either. Heat works great and so does the AC. It has a newer set of tires on it, brand new brake pads, and a new battery. And a new computer was put in and programmed. 180k. It is a very very smooth driving quiet car
