Agreed. and even most decent backyard folks shy away from timing belts given the tools and the need to be perfect (or bad things happen). But the interval is 105-110K on older models and the newer ones are chain driven cams so they do not have a defined interval and will most likely be good for 250-300K+

Perhaps a water pump and maybe a trans service but the article said 15K miles a year for 5 years so at 75K nothing like that would need to be done.

The biggy I can think of off the top of my hat is most Honda's have interference engines, that darn timing belt.
Half or less of Honda's - most have gone to timing chains. But the replacement schedule is at 100K miles not 75K - so it should probably not be included in the ownership cost. That said the dealer charges about $1,000 for the service, a local Asian car repair place I've used charges $500 and the one I did myself was about $200 in parts including the belts, water pump etc.
