We bought this car in hopes of keeping it "forever". Now at 85,000 I've had to have the transmission replaced (this week)- seems a little too soon for that! Honda did cover 50% of the cost because of the low mileage (they call it Goodwill). The alternator had to be replaced in 2006 (very expensive). The ECM for emissions had to be replaced in 2003 (under warranty). The climate control motor assembly had to be replaced in 2007. The CD player stopped working and the radio had to be replaced in 2004 (Honda covered that). All in all, I guess it's been a good car- it's never left me stranded- but I think the things that have gone wrong are excessive considering the low miles.
