Default General Ownership/Repair Question

Aloha All- This is my first time to site. I just acquired a 1991 Acura Legend LS (free) and was wondering if it is practical for me to continue fixing the car considering I am not really an enthusiast but only an elderly lady that needed transportation. The mechanic I have had do some work on it is telling me I should sell this car since it is difficult to find parts. Since you all have done extensive work on these vehicles out of love, I wanted your advice.

For instance just recently my mechanic said he couldn't find some motor mounts that needed replacing, or the antennae. And now the driver's door handle has broken off.

I'd appreciate your advice on whether it might be too much for me to keep the car running.

Thank you! Or "Mahalo" as we say in Hawaii.

Hi Honolulu: Welcome to the forum! I would have to say that the Legend is not a good car for a lady who will have to pay for everything to be repaired if you really are not an enthusiast and just use a car to get from point A to B.

That being said, all of the parts you mentioned are available used on this forum and the ALOE FB site by numerous parts sellers (including myself).

"Legend Ownership is Not for the Timid" is the best way I can say it.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
