My power steering went out 3 days ago, took the car into the shop and found out the rack and pinion leaks terribly.
I just bought this what I thought was reliable 1-owner, low mileage (it's at 119k now), 1996 Accord LX this past summer for $2500.
I'm still getting quotes but so far, for parts and labor to replace the rack and pinion, it'll cost me $975!
-Is this something I should get fixed for sure?
-Do you think this is a "lemon" type of issue? If so, should I try to sell the car before or after getting it fixed?
Thanks for any suggestions!
