No, stick with your dealer unless an independent Honda mechanic can save you BIG bucks ( let's say a $1,200 savings on a $1,100 job :)). I went the cheap route with both my timing belt and wheel bearings, and ended up having both re-done by my long time, quality Honda dealer within a few thousand miles. Finally got my money back from the "independent", but only after about a 6-month hassle.
My local dealer's service departments are incredibly overpriced and are probably more likely to f something up than the better independent shops that have developed a good reputation. On a out of warranty vehicle, going to the dealer only guarantees that you will pay too much.
