This car has always been reliable until last August when it failed to start. We had it towed to the local AAA shop and they said it was the ignition. They replaced the distributor, wires and plugs. 3 months later the same thing happened. Again, towed to the AAA shop where they said it was the distributor again and put in one from a different supplier without charge. However, yesterday it failed again -- this time stopping on the road. We had it towed to the local Honda dealer this time. Once again tested showed it's the distributor.
Now I'm wondering if we have more than just bad aftermarket parts. Can you think of anything else that could be at play here?
