Should I sell my car and buy a new one or should I pay 1200 for maintenance...

...and keep for 2 more years? Okay, I have an 01 Base Honda Prelude with 77k miles. I bought it last july and am still paying on it. KBB for trade is 7700 at worst case I owe a little less than a grand below that. It needs to get the timing belt and big maintenance done on it. All in all I am looking at 1200 bucks for everything to get it running really well.































I plan to have children in the next couple of years and am looking to get a four door car that still has some spunk to within the same time. I like the new Honda Civic si and I could get one with like 7k miles in my area for around $20,500. My question is should I just use the money for the timing belt and the difference I would get for my prelude to just get the newer car now and pay the higher monthly bill but only have to deal with smaller maintenance costs?































I am really not sure what I should do? Please help. Well thought out answers will help.































Thank you in advance...

considering the prelude is extremely hard to find, and precious to many fans of it, you should definately get it fixed, drive it for a little longer than trade it in.































if your looking for a family car, the civic may be a little too small if your looking for more htan three or four people. Try looking into a roomier camry, or accord. but if you do end up getting the civic, you'll love it just as much as your prelude! good luck and happy selling!
