I’m going to be receiving my mom’s old Honda Accord soon. It’s a couple of years newer and it’s got about 20,000 miles less then my current car. The catch is that it will need a new timing belt in about a year or two. It’s fairly large expense.
However, my brother went to high school with a mechanic who fixes cars on the weekend. He offered to replace the belt for under $300 (which is $150 less than we were quoted by another place).
I think he’s going to start next weekend.
I can’t wait: the car is old, but it has a sunroof.
