Even if it does past 30 days. You have reported the issue and is still covered.

I didn't know that. Thank you very much, that gives me a little more hope on getting these issues resolved. It is upsetting because I know they're generally not bad cars.

Frustrating when you cannot get expert repairs.

That is exactly what's bothering me. I know any good mechanic would say these are the problems and it'll take x-amount of money to fix and the vehicle should be fine after that. Except for the obvious age wear and tear and regular maintenance. But Honda is keeping up the stereotype of a dealer not giving a crap as long as they get your money.

So my mechanic did his inspection and said the alternator looks like it has never been changed and if they changed it like they said then it is a used one.
He also said he thinks the ignition switch needs to be replaced, he noticed he's had a lot of that lately in older Honda's all models.
It would cost over $600.00 because the 2007 is an entire column that has to be changed which would then need a different key.
He did a 2006 last week and that was only $300.00 and he assumed the 2007 would be the same but he said for reason they changed it for that year.
So told to hold off for now I'm going to bring it back to Honda and hopefully they get it right this time.

So I had a discussion with the used car manager again and his response to everything I said was "we did everything we were required to do to complete the safety test and certify it."
Every time he repeated himself it was because he didn't know what else to say. I told him what needed to be replaced and the cost of about $600.00. I also told him about the alternator not being touched.
He finally said that he would pay up to $400.00 to repair as a "good gesture". He kept saying that. He gave me the address and name where the vehicles got serviced which is about forty five minutes away from where I live. I agreed that I would pay anything past $400.00.
I talked to the wife and she said why don't you tell him that you can't trust his guy and that it is too far and that you will have your mechanic do the work and provide him with the receipt afterwards. I was so pissed that he was trying to get away without paying I never thought about that.
So I texted the sales guy and asked him to ask the manger for me if we could do that and get back to me to let me know. So that's where I stand now. It all makes sense why my car racked up a bunch of mileage while being "serviced".
I really don't like going to his guy because it all seems a bit shady.

So I got my car looked at by Honda independent shop where all the repairs were apparently done. He said he changed the ignition switch on my 07 Accord but the same code is still showing on my code reader (61 01, Low voltage) no engine light on. I told the guy before I left he scanned it with his scanner in front of me and showed me "no codes" - "no stored codes" nothing. What's your take on that?

I would trust the shop. The code readers are not always correct. Drive it and see how it does.

It has been driving fine other than slight little stutters that I've felt maybe three or four times since I got it back. I'm thinking that it might be misfiring but again I'm not sure about that either.

Just drive it and see what happens. Give it a couple of weeks and see what happens.
