Depends on how it's driven and how it's maintained. We do see some issues related to front end (compliance bushings, CV shafts, etc) but nothing uber expensive.
$2K in maintenance and repairs doesn't buy you a lot these days. Heck, I spent $2K in parts and repairs to an old Caravan I bought. The only thing I couldn't do myself was the solenoid block in the transmission that had to be programmed....and the rest was just parts!
The key here is maintenance. Make sure you do all the regular maintenance, with ONLY Genuine Acura fluids. The other thing to note is that by time, you're due for the 105K maintenance, which includes the timing belt and water pump.....about a $900 job.
