On-the-road breakdown

My car's engine suddenly died while on visit to my dad's. We towed it to the local Honda dealership where they found it was the coil and ignitor. The car as the center of attention the whole time it was in the shop where they were calling it "The Space Shuttle". Its been 170,000 miles since my last on-the-road breakdown, so I'm not complaining. This was the third on-the-road breakdown since I bought the car new. The first was at 170,000 miles when the main relay failed, the second was at 290,000 miles when the timing belt failed prematurily, and todays was at 461,000 miles.
