Default Re: Does it pay to keep a 91 Accord?


I bought it used and it now has 92,000 miles and it got somewha
flooded a few weeks back (about 3" of water in the driver side) fro
sitting in a flooded parking lot for a few hourse. I replaced th
computer and it is now fine but there are lots of nagging littl
problems. There is quite a bit of rust around the wheel wells;
haven't seen an Accord of this year without rust in the same places

The shift (automatic) is sometimes balky being pulled out of park bu
otherwise appears to be fine. I have no complaints about the engine
I've done pretty regular oil changes

The front end shakes at 55-60mph, which I guess means it needs to b
aligned. There is clicking during left turns, axle perhaps? The C
boots are ok. Those are the mechanical problems that I know of. An
it's due for a big Honda checkup, likely around $300 or so

Water leaks into the trunk when I open it up, flowing down from th
driver side taillight. The locks need to be re-keyed to fit th
ignition lock or someday the Viper clicky will die and I won't be abl
to get in (I have changed the battery). The radio is still a cassette
The antenna valiently tries to lower but no longer does so

I was thinking that perhaps $1000 - $1500 might fix all the problems
but I'd hate to do that and find out that there is something majo
coming up. Timing belt was done around 60,000 or so

Perhaps it's just time to sell it to my mechanic and get a Fit or use
Civic or something? It's been so reliable that I hate giving it up
considering the mileage and work needed if it were my vehicle i would
sell it and get what i can. and look at something newer just keep in min
that nothing lasts forever that saying not only applieys to Humans but cars
as well and sooner or later there will come a time when you need to get rid
of it. why not now
