Dissappointed.

I thought this would be my last car...but after about 26000 miles, it began to have problems. The ac fan motor had to be replaced. The battery and tires had to be replaced. The most surprising and dissapointing is that the paint, red, is fading on the hood and top. I paid for the sealant but the warranty is expired. It is kept in the garage when not being driven and cleaned and waxed on a regular basis. It is not cheap to have a new paint job and should not have happened after only 28000 miles. I am very dissappointed in Honda.
