alot of those things are easy fixes. fender is easy. so is the wash fluid. maybe u need to take it to another dealership who can actually fix the problems instead of writing them off as normal. Not all dealerships are equal.

Sucks, you start to get burnt out on a car that has issue after issue, I know how you feel. Im not too sure about the new Accord issues, but as far as Camry issues, the first year of the 6 speed triptronic (07) has a few shifting quirks, but they fixed it with a firmware update, other than that I doubt you could go wrong with either car, but the Camry v6 is definitely faster.

Thats very true, good advice. I cant send anyone with a lifted truck to the local Ford dealer for warranty issues, they will just write it off as a voided warranty due to modified suspension. But if I send them to Galpin Ford, 30 miles away, its never a problem.
