Default 4th Honda and my Accord now has 215K

About 3 years ago, I picked up my Royal Blue Pearl, 2006, V-tech 2.4L, 4 door, Honda Accord ExL. As my 4th Honda, I purposely bought the 4cyl so I would not have to pay ~$1000 for a timing belt / water pump replacement. Very happy with the throttle response of the V-Tech. Some regrets for buying it with a 2" peel of clear-coat on the passenger fender. I see some that are older or different colors than mine that look much better. Lots of clear coat peel on the right fender and hood. I now have some front edge of hood rust rot as well, but I drive it 50 miles a day to & from work. Now has 215K.

It is a paid for car and the most expensive repairs were AC compressor, drive shaft, driver door lock rebuild and actuator replace (at dealer, yuck) and starter in that order at my local, highly trusted mechanic. Beyond that I have done my own brakes, battery, fluid changes, headlight bulb replacement. I am considering a wheel bearing replacement in my own garage.
That's why I joined the forums. BTW, the first (2) Hondas were Civics from Craig's list and the first (1) was totaled on the highway. Last (2) are the Accord and our 2009 Honda Odyssey ExL Navi.
