I’m scheduling an appointment with another shop that was recommended and has good reviews.  Might as well see what they quote on the rack and the a/c.  I appreciate your help.

I went to two different mechanics. I thought it was pretty common knowledge that shops don’t charge rockauto prices for parts. I’m sure the part price was higher but I’d have to go back and check. Both shops quoted in that same neighborhood. Read more

I do not necessarily agree. For sake of argument, say you are right. Then I’m playing the odds either way. If i buy another vehicle (with a comparable or better reputation for reliability), and it is 12 - 15 years newer, odds are significantly higher that newer vehicle will not have problems (or wear items) for 7 - 12 Read more

I don’t know that I’ll get another 50 -100k out of it trouble free. I’d be guessing based on Honda/Acura’s reputation for reliability. Read more

Timing belt was changed.  I do worry about other things though.  Example: it has original shocks & all suspension, original clutch, original radiator, etc.

My point was I’d be guessing that I will. I don’t know that I’ll get another 50 -100k out of it. I’m guessing based on Honda/Acura’s reputation for reliability.

Yeah, I live in the south & work in a professional environment where I can’t show up sweating. Windows don’t cut in anymore in short amount of time (almost summer).

My first car was a 71 chevelle.  I’d buy another 71-2 in a heartbeat.  Cool car.

Eh, I miss the Acura that built my daily (05 TL 6mt).  That car has a feel and sportiness that is unmatched by anything Acura currently offers with 4 doors.
