A rushed purchase is rarely an economically sound purchase. If you can take the time to do the research and wait for a great deal to come along, you will be happier with your decision and will save money.

I don't have experience in a 1989 CRX, but the Accent will have an OBDII port if that matters to you. I'd probably lean newer if it were my decision, especially if the Honda has an unidentified transmission problem.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
