Which car should I dump?

Definitely keep the ‘89 Accord. Those are great cars. Ford Taurus is hit or miss depending on the year. Not sure what the 94s were like in terms of reliability but that said certain years can be okay cars but they won’t hold up like the Honda will. In those years they had a graphite head gasket that was prone to failure overtime, but they’ve since upgraded to a steel head gasket that is much better quality and will last a lot longer. The other stuff is fixable. Even if you needed to replace the clutch on that car ever those are fairly cheap as well. As for the CR-V, well it just so happens that I drive a 2014 myself and I love it. The problem with the 15s and 16s is they went to Continuously variable transmissions in 2015, which can be problematic overtime. Personally, I would say if you’re looking to buy one of those maybe go with the 16 because chances are if they had any glitches in the previous year they have likely been sorted out at that point. Hope that helps, and good luck!
