Visited Dealer, Thomas met us on a Sunday afternoon to let us test drive 2003 Honda Odyssey with my son in law and daughter. Vehicle was if fair condition and drove ok. It was apparent that it needed tires and an alignment. No problems jumped out and Thomas gave us his testimony that the vehicle always was maintained well by his father who had drove it for the last two years. My son-in-law and daughter purchased the vehicle the next day and when driving home the service engine soon light came on and stayed on along with the TLC traction control light. We put a code reader on the OBD II connector and pulled 8 codes P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0300 AND P1399 these are misfiring codes. We have since changed the oil and transmission fluid because the next day the Maintenance light came on! We also started checking coils & plugs but we remembered Thomas said his Dad had just put new coils and plugs on the van along with new timing belt, water pump and idler pulley, So we cleaned the EGR valve and got light to stay off for one day before it came right back. We since changed the air filter since it looked like it went 50,000 miles or so and continue trying to track down the culprit that is tripping the service engine soon codes! Well they can tell you all the things they did and paint a wonderful picture but unless you can see documentation someone else's idea of great maintenance and yours can be a mile wide gap! We did receive a carfax report that spoke to some of the maintenance but it also stated a one owner car when actually my son-in-law and daughter now are the third since the dealer let his father drive it for two years without transferring tiltle so beware things are not always what the might seem.
