Default Re: 1995 Honda Civic Dx STOLEN in San Jose Ca.

The good news is that they found the car ( in Milpitas )
the bad news is the thief's broke the ignition switch to hot wire it
any Idea what is involved with this kind of repair ?
the towing guy said, he thought we would have to replace the steering
column.
and that that was about $2,000
what if I just replace the ignition switch
I mean does the steering column lock make a critical difference?

A few days ago I came upon a blue Civic hatchback (from between 92 and
95) at a junk yard in Militias (Pick-Your-Part). Glad it wasn't your
daughter's.

You can look at http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com for parts prices.
Select model, year, trim level, transmission etc. and select
"Combination switch" from the "System/Component" pull-down menu.

I would be very surprised if you need a new steering column. I think
worst case you need item "1", which lists at $352.27, and sells for
$267.73. What you will find is that local dealers charges about 30%
ABOVE list price whereas this on-line place charges about 25% LESS than
list.

Pricing out the 90k service for my Civic last spring I found Stevens
Creek Honda to be the most expensive, Los Gatos Honda to be the cheapest
in the South Bay. If you want to go to an independent shop (I would) I
can give Steve Smith Autoservice (http://www.smittylube.com) my warmest
recommendation. My brother has taken his car there a few times as have
other friends. I have taken my car to Made In Japan
(http://www.madeinjapan-usa.com/) in Sunnyvale for a CV-joint boot
replacement and received good service.

Japanese Beetle (http://www.japanesebeetle.com/) did not impress me.
