Fantacura not so fantastic

The Fantacura (my 2001 Acura 1.7 EL) went in to the shop for a check-up, complaining about no heater heat at idle, and was told to get it’s affairs in order and make peace with those around it.

It’s not in a bad way, like my Saturn was when it was traded in (sorry Acura in Markham), but it is time to start looking around.

It’s got a few dings, including losing its front Acura A, and the leather driver’s seat has been re-stitched by me with fishing line.

The most recent ailment has forced me to realize that 235,000 Km is about all it’s worth. 170,000 Km was with me behind the wheel, and I think most of that was on the QEW between the Burlington Skyway and St. Catharines.

So now I’m scouring the province for a (manual transmission-ed) slightly used Acura CSX, Mazda3 Sport – or maybe an immaculate Acura EL?
