2007 Honda Accord 4dr Sedan

244-horsepower 3.0L V6 5-speed automatic FWD

10000 mi   check engine light came on 
31000 US $50 Service advisor tried to tell me this was normal due to the idle speed dropping low with load on transmission. He could give no explanation why this started after car was driven for 1 year before the problem started. 
41000   Noise in timing belt system. Dealer contacted U.S. Honda and was told they are aware of the problem and working on a fix or TSB but may require a shim in the timing belt system. Said it was only third reported problem like this in the U.S. 
85000 US $600 Rattling noise in timing belt area when warm. Honda researched and advised it was caused by the timing belt pulley being slightly skewed. Potential failure (though unlikely) of timing belt pulley that could cause major valve, piston, or cylinder damage. 
56000   bad #6 fuel injector 
107000 US $750 timing belt changed 
122000   Needed front and side motor mounts

33500 mi   Check Engine light came on. Minutes later Engine had no power. Shutting the engine and restarting it was enough to get me to the dealer. Dealer diagnosed and replaced faulty engine sensor under warranty. 
101000 US $50 CEL with bank 1 catalyst issue 
17360   Car started leaking oil. Defective oil pan plug seal. Replaced under warranty. 
32000   Car intermittently does not start when key turned. So far, a second turn of the key solves the problem. 
58000   Fix for occasionally iffy ignition would have been thirty bucks at Advance and an hour of trim work. Sold this way, new buyer wasn't worried.
