Buying an old car that was never used 2014 Civic Hybrid 5 miles


Topic starter

A dealer in MA has a 2014 Civic Hybrid that they say "has never been owned or registered by anybody". They list it at 5 miles.

Before buying a car like this, what should someone know, and why might the car have never been sold? 7 years seems like a long time.

Thanks in advance

Scotty just spoke about a story like this about an fj cruiser. My concern buying something that is concern over the seals and condition of rubber belts.  It is not good for cars to just sit there.


If it's a hybrid, it has batteries. Li-ion batteries are good for 5 years or so. After that, they do not hold the charge very well.
