Default Fix or Junk? '98 Accord LX-V6 Coupe, 196000 miles, Auto transmission is slipping.?

I really need to replace this car, but there are no new cars that I am excited about. Also, if I buy a new car, I was considering keeping this Accord as a beater to absorb parking lot damage at work. My new car would not be a Honda - the new Accords have gotten too big. The Civic is a bore.

That particular generation of the Accord is well-known for defective automatic transmissions. I'd say buy a new car and keep the Accord as a second car. Once the transmission in it fails, take it to a junk yard. There's no point in fixing it since a new transmission will cost as much as the car itself.
