Default falling apart?!?!?!

Ok, I bought my car a year ago. Already I have put over 5gs worth of
parts into it, from axels and roters to motor mounts, three radiators,
and 02 sensors. A week ago the SPEED SENSOR??? went out. I paid almost
$200.00 to have it fixed. The check engine light came on again
tonight. The code read main circut malfunction. I have no clue. Anyone
know the costs on this repair and is it worth it? :cry:

1996 Honda Accord

How many miles are on this beast?

I have a 1996 Accord LX with 184k on it right now. I purchased it new.

So far, all I have spent money on besides tires and oil changes are:

1 Right axle boot.
Brake Rotors (once)
2 Timing belts/water pumps.
1 O2 Sensor
1 Muffler.

I'm a pretty happy camper!

Then you have been getting abominably bad diagnosis and repair.

What was wrong in the first place that led you to agree to all this? Sounds
like at least some of the repairs were to fix the consequences of poor
maintenance.

No it didn't. It read Pxxxx, where the X's are numbers.

Please tell us the number, along with any symptoms coincident with the
error code.

I have no clue either. You have related a tale of woe, but zero details. We
are not psychics, so give us something to work with.

What model? What engine? Automatic or manual?

LMAO. You don't. Indeed.

Anyone

Of course not. It will only get worse from here.
I always have a kick at people buying
dilapidated crap for the money they could have
easily spent on a american car in a decent condition.
Been had once too. No more very used old crap for me.
Japanese or american. And don't cry. You can find another sucker
to buy it. After all it's JAPANESE.

Yes, I drive a jap car and no, I don't like driving american cars
at all. But I have to be fair to the Detrua: their cars are far
more reliable than some people would like you think.

I'm guessing here, but I believe you mean sane and reasonable people.

I have to ask where's the reliability data is coming from?
Consumer retorts? People seem to rate their cars based on how
they like them not on how reliable they are
(despite the istructions from retorts I guess)
The reliability results they publish (per model per year) is pure
rubbish.
What could've been reliable is the extended service plan costs
from insurance companies if they were to sell them for 50-100k miles.
Is there such a thing?

You have no basis on which to make that statement. The survey is the
best information available to the consumer on auto reliability.
