50000 mi

VSA (vehicle stability) warning light kept appearing and it became difficult to take car out of park. Dealer found that brake pedal sensor was faulty. Replaced it, now car runs fine. It took three repair trips to find this. 
9000 mi rotors needed to be resurfaced

23000 mi

US $250
Frozen caliper on left rear brake required new rear pads and rotor resurfacing. Second time this has happened in less than 25,000 total miles. Honda has no explanation; claims caliper itself is OK.
