1990 Honda Prelude Si 2.0 from North America
It's a good overall basic car besides the steering configuration
Well, I first bought the car last year, and I thought it was perfect. But everything on the car just started breaking. So we spent $6,000 just to fix the basic parts, needed new radiator, powersteering, new tires, inspection, A/C, muffler, etc.
I just got it out of the shop a day ago, we asked them to fix whatever they can. The transmission was slipping from 1st to 2nd before we took it to the shop. And, now it doesn't, it has new everything, except there's something missing. I'm not totally sure what it is, I'm guessing either the CV joints, or boots. Everytime I make a left turn, there's a clicking noise that happens while taking the turn, and just started making the noise the entire time I drive it, so I can tell it's getting worse. Can anyone tell what that is? How to fix it? so I won't have to worry about it. But, besides that, the car is great. Just has a steering problem. Can anyone help me out on this?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I would say that it is possibly a CV joint. That's what I've always heard from people when a front-wheel-drive makes a noise like that. I've been in a couple of cars that were doing that and remember asking a local mechanic once a few years ago.
To be sure, however, you could maybe ask someone you know whose a mechanic or at least mechanically- minded.
Hope it goes well, and "have a nice day"
