Very frustrating to fix
Timing belt went at 90K mile. 2,000 miles after I bought the car. Car needs alignment.
I bought the car from a private seller in June of 05 for $3,700. I drove the car for 3 weeks/2,000 miles before the timing belt went. After the timing belt went I took the head to a mechanic to get rebuilt. After I installed my new head and belt the car wounldn't spark. I replaced the distributor, distributor cap, rotor, coil, sparks plugs and wires and the car still won't start. Total cost for repairs:
-Rebuilt head with Timing belt kit $700
The car has been sitting in my driveway for 3 weeks. I can't seem to figure out what the problem may be. I bought a Chilton repair manual, but that doesn't cover much. I recommend buying the factory Honda service manual.
When the car was running (only three weeks) it ran well and the car is fun to drive. This car is good, but unfortunately this particular car hasn't been good to me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
