Do not worry. These cars are built to last. I have owned a 92 since 1997. Mine only has 130K miles on it but I know owners who made it past 400K miles and are running strong. Just be sure you do a major service on the engine which includes a new timing belt. If the belt breaks the pistons will crash into the valves and do serious (and very costly) damage to the valves and piston crowns. If the engine has good compression I would buy the car but budget about $500-1000 towards doing preventative repairs before you bring the car into service.See the source for much more information.

you are absolutely right . this car was a bad design.it kept breaking down and it is not easy to work on. this is why Acura stop making them. the common problems was oil leak and electrical problem. getting to the parts was no easy access which cost the owners ALOT,ALOT,ALOT of money. we make alot of money on repairs of this model but we don"t want to own something that is not easy to work on or unreliable.

You might want to go with a Legend instead, they are a lot nicer and most likely not much more.
