We're in the market for a new to us family ride because Michelle's Honda was the victim of a nasty hit and run downtown. Thankfully, her and the kids were not in the van. She was volunteering just before Christmas for the Dolls for Daughters event. Someone plowed into the van, took the time to leave a bogus note with fake phone number and drove off. Denver PD wouldn't even take a report or come to the scene. Van has been in the shop ever since. Merry Christmas to us.
It's just metal and plastic though, so who cares? It can all be replaced.
Its been a really good engine. Were at 80K+ on it (2007 model year) and other than oil & air filter changes the only other repair was to replace a defective cam position sensor at 50K miles.
