What a find!
 Not trying to teach you to suck eggs but hope you have it booked in for a service as a lot of items will not have benefittted from standing for 5 years?
Drive safely.

You are right, I would have to think long and hard about buying a car that has stood for that long, would rather get a car with more miles that has been used regularly. Certainly brake fluid will need changing and maybe brakes need a good look as well as cylinder or calipers may have stuck.

As Jocko says get a new battery...and put a big dose of redex through it to clean out all the crud left behind by 5 year old fuel.

Very low mileage cars are often not the bargain they seem, they have the 'wrong kind of miles' in them, the opposite of motorway miles...

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Still sounds like he got an absolute bargain. A bit of TLC and it should come good.

Or is it? What do you think?

I have a 2009 EX i-shift which I've had for two years now. I absolutely love the car as it's economical (52-mpg on a run and 42-mpg around town). I have replaced the original battery (failed after nine years) and apart from wiper blades and a set of Bosch iridium-tipped plugs it has cost me nothing except fuel and oil. I also changed the gearbox oil. It now has just over 70,000 miles on the clock (48,000 when I acquired it) and It drives extremely well. I use the paddles to change down when approaching junctions and roundabouts and run the tyres at 2.2-bar when cold. This, I find, gives excellent roadholding and ride on Kumho tyres. Overall, it's a beautifully designed car that suits my driving needs both on short local journeys and regular trips to Cockermouth in the Lake District from my home near Barnsley in Yorkshire. Oh...and it had the necessary airbag replacement under the Honda scheme.

I am looking at a 2013 1.4 EX or a 2014 1.4 ES Plus.

Seem to be the only difference is the sunroof, anything else other than that?
