I have driven two Honda's for extended periods. Firstly, parts are not that expensive, secondly, I hardly ever had to buy parts.
How do you feel about paying a couple of thousands for a Jazz CV joints? "Not that expensive" is not good enough for someone in OP's position, we need not expensive, period.

A dealer was my client... I saw people walk out crying after getting quotes. It's quite possibly different today. The Ballade was pop back then.
They are indeed expensive, good thing is that the cars don't break that often but it crying time when they finally do.

That’s the case for ALL dealerships.

Regardless of brand.

For the few spares I've needed for my Focus, the dealer has been cheaper than Midas. Granted, I've not needed a lot.

Yeah sometimes for strictly parts they can be.

But add the labour and it’s all negated.

Honda very rarely needs random spares outside of normal service items and those aren’t especially pricey.

Have brakes done elsewhere as with any car out of warranty.
