I replaced my interupter almost 5 years ago... It was not a bad job.. And the parts were less than $100 including the oil and filter... At the time the car was almost 10 years old and I was hot rodding it then I heard the plink then the SES came on... Code 41...
Now let me go back a little ways here... No car is perfect... I don not care who makes it..
We had a 90 Accord brand new off the showroom floor... In 93 it left us stranded on a Major state highway late a nite... Distributor Failed.... We had to have it towed to the Honda dealership 20 miles away in the middle of the nite... Had to go after a rental as the service department was not open on sat or sun... They replaced the distributor, turned out it was a common problem on all of the 90-92 accords and was corrected on the 93 models, but was not recalled till 93... Was it a good car? Yes... At 30k miles the AC needed a recharge, The Drivers window was clanky, the trans was getting clunky and we did have the trans serviced at the dealership which made no diffrence... The Valvetrain needed an adjustment to bring it back to spec.... Not sure what it was but this car ate batteries... never got 2 years out of one.. It was a good car and it had its issues... Ther resale on it was still good tho.. More than we owed... We got rid of it in 94
The Mitsubishi.... We put a water pump on it, timming belt( this I expected )... The alternator failed in a bad way( smoked it )... There is a coolant pipe that runs friom the fromt of the motor to the rear and around that rusted and had a pinhole leak( got lucky we noticed it as it was being driven 70 miles per day )... I have replaced the front struts and need to do the rear now... The only other rear problem we had with this car was that the ECU died in it, and they are a hot commidity( $400 )... No JY for a very long distance even had one... And if they did it was well over $400... This car was better than the accord( I like the accord more, but this was a better car )
All cars have their quirks... IMy 91 has been ultra reliable for its age and abuse it has seen... Its not going to bother me if I have to replace an alternator or wheel hub assembly.. The interior of my 91 is tighter than the the 90 accord or Mitsu ever was..
All cars are going to have their issues... None of them are perfect...
And if you ever have a Nissian with the 2.4 or whatever size 4 cylinder they make now days... Just wait till the timmin chain tensioner goes out and you get your repair bill
