Not At All What I Wanted To Hear!

It looks like the time has come for me to retire my beloved 12 year old Honda Accord! Timing is awful but there's not many choices left. My car started sputtering a few days ago so I took in for a diagnostic test. ****sighing deeply**** It's the daggum transmission - $3,292, catalytic converter - $900ish and something else that I can't recall - $200ish. When you add it all up, we're talking darn near $5,500. Oh my goodness, I have no idea what I'm going to do. This was sooo not in the plans for 2010. Okay, gotta regroup and figure this situation out because I DO NOT, and I repeat DO NOT want a car note EVER AGAIN IN LIFE!

I'm sorry to hear this about your car... but as for the transmission: Well, do you have to drive the car on the highway a lot?

I said my car is trusty and wonderful but a year ago the transmission started slipping and lurching. I have learned how to "baby" it and I can drive it all around town now but I admit I am afraid of the fastest highways because 65+ is difficult and I'm afraid if I have to get up to speed on, say, an uphill merge, it might not be safely possible.

I'm just saying that a car with an iffy transmission can still be fine for all around town, minus superhighways. I know this probably doesn't help.

Sorry to hear about your Honda. I have an old Accord, too, and I sure hope it lasts another 8 months. Is your car drivable?

Yeesh. Sorry to hear about this. I hope you can atleast take some solace in the fact that you were able to drive the car for 12 years with what I assume is minimal repairs and maintenance costs. But yeah, that sucks. Let us know what you plan to do to replace the ride.

Oy Yee Vay! My friend bought a decent older car for $2500 and hes had it for 5 years now. Maybe you could find another Honda Accord. They are good cars.
