If you want a brand new one from factory, its gonna cost a lot more then $600. More like in the thousands. But if you nab it off this site or ebay, its gonna be $600

Did you ever consider getting 100k bumper to bumper extended warrenty? Since your car has 40k miles you could purchase one from Honda for like 800 bucks and you'll be covered for a long time. It'll be much cheaper then paying for broken parts each time.

Of course, thats why its called extended warrenty. Stop by your local Honda dealership and tell them you want ot buy extended warrenty. My friend just got one for his 01 civic with 55k miles on it. It was like 850 for a 3 year 36k miles bumper to bumper extended warrenty so he should be good to go until about 91k miles worry free.

No prob man. Glad to help. Just dont tell them you're having a lto of problems with the car..... say you want to be extra safe or some BS along those lines.

One prob you might run into is that your car is modded and depending on the dealership they might give you some **** for it. Good luck though

Let me know how it turns out.

holly crap, that crazy.

what you can also try to do is call up a Honda dealership and try to purchase the extended warranty over the phone VIA credit card. it might work.

if it works just wait a couple days and get the thing towed to Honda.....

i dont knwo what else to say

try to get warranty and wait a couple of weeks then bring it in or talk to insurance. i dunno man that's a tough situation to be in. your probably almost to the point where you don't even wanna look at the car. i wonder if the ecu is fuked? if it is and you get a new engine without them replacing the ecu then it'll just blow again. plus a fourth time...that has to be a lemon.

4th time?? This is unquestionably a lemon. DOn't even worry about it anymore, if they refuse to give you a different car take them to court and you will win.

Court is a big hassle tho, I know I would win, and hopefully if we do go to court I can get payment for emotional damages and lawyer fees. I miss my car lol

Call 1-800-Lemon-Law

I think its free of charge. If you take them to court Honda will have to pay so its a win-win situation for you.

Tell them that your engine blew 4 times.

I think by law if the same problem reoccurs 3 times then its officially a Lemon.
