The rack is an oddball failure. I think I've changed 1 in any model Accord and seen 1 leak in over 20 years.
The alternator is a known issue, if the battery ever has any issue, such as not wanting to take a full charge, it stresses the crummy Delphi diodes, and usually one blows and the lights come on and the alternator whines loudly while getting really hot. Usually they make it to 130k. If it were a Denso, usually they can make it the life of the car.
The rear wheel bearings, all it takes is one good pothole and they start moaning. Nothing unusual for any modern car. You should see the failure rate of GM fwd and 4wd truck front hub bearing units. They can cost up to $500 each.
As usual, YOU are preaching the "Gospel Truth."
I am quite happy to hear that Honda rack failures are the exception, NOT the rule!
(BTW, my Gen Three's original rack lasted until July 2006...some 20 (twenty) years. I replaced it with a Genuine Honda "reman," at a cost of ~$340.00.
HMC should be ASHAMED for installing a Delphi alternator on a Gen Six (or any other) car. Once I saw it, the very day I bought my '02, knowing about the cheap-a$$, crummy Diode bridge they routinely use, is WHY I stopped by AutoZone, on my way back home, to get the BIGGEST, most POWERFUL battery they sell. (Namely, a Group 24, DuraLast Gold, with 750 CCA and eight-year warranty.) My point, and as you say, if you have a weak/substandard battery in a Gen Six car, you're just begging for alternator failure.
(This is WHY I earlier asked you about my doing a conversion to a Denso unit.
The REAR wheel bearings on my trusty '86 are (surprisingly?) ORIGINAL. But I won't be shocked if ANY of my '02's wheel bearings died tomorrow, despite the smooth roadways I routinely enjoy. Why, you may ask? Because I see my dealer replacing a TON of Odyssey and (later) Accord wheel bearings, regardless of mileage and/or age.
