I'm a fan of Nissans, Mazdas, and Hyundais. They have Asian reliability without the Honda/Toyota price premium. Nissans have timing chains that won't leave you stranded with bent valves like Hondas will when their timing belts break. I'd avoid Mitsubishis, and Kias prior to the Hyundai partnership.
I've had 11 Hondas in the family since my brother bought his first 10 years ago. 5 of them have had over 225,000 miles on them. None of us have ever broken a timing belt. My Accord was still on the original one at 280,000 miles when I sold it. All others were changed between 60,000 and 100,000 mile intervals. It's not expensive, and from the help on this site, it's not hard to change one. Timing chain guides can wear, causing the chain to slip, too. This happened on a Car and Driver long-term test Nissan 240SX back in the late 90s. They had to fix it at 40,000 miles. Granted, they still require less maintenance than belts, but chains are not infallable.
I used to work for Nissan. I know one of the technicians had a 2004 Maxima, and he waited over 6 months to get his air conditioner fixed due to parts on back-order. This was in 2007. I have heard similar issues with Murano owners. After 3 months at Nissan, I left because we could not get any repeat customers. That's a shame, because the newer Altimas and Muranos drove pretty darned nicely, and Nissan had a more diverse model lineup than Honda overall
