#22418 of 30576 Leaking oil pipe to Radiator for Honda Odyssey
May 01, 2009 (2:08 am)
Hi guys, I have a Honda Odyssey 1997 Model ( automatic transmission) .1 year ago , I replaced radiator when it started leaking.Recently, I noticed oil leaks on the oil pipe from the engine to the radiator (the shorter pipe).It leaks on the clamp.I changed the clamp and its still leaking.After a while I noticed the top hose of radiator was damaged.I changed it.
Do you think there is a problem with the radiator to cool the oil or maybe problem with the whole cooling system..Does the oil that goes to the radiator from the engine, have a pump,if so is it damaged.
Fans are working fine (I think) and radiator doesn't leak.

#22421 of 30576 2009 Odyssey EX in Maryland
May 01, 2009 (9:54 am)
My wife and I bought an Odyssey EX from Jim Coleman in Clarksville, Maryland yesterday (Apr 30). This was after reading all the good posts here (thanks, everyone) and using Edmund's dealer email service to find the color and price we wanted (we emailed 9 dealers in all).
$22,791.54 - Price
$670.00 - Honda Freight
$100.00 - Dealer Processing
$0.00 - Mud Guards, Wheel Locks, Door Edge Guards
$23,561.54 - SUBTOTAL
$1,413.69 - 6% Maryland Sales Tax
$274.00 - Maryland Registration (2 years)
$25,249.23 - Total Drive off Price
The best part? We didn't walk into the dealer until they emailed us the itemized costs above, the color, VIN number, and dealer stock number. We had our credit union put the VIN and stock number on the cashier's check we brought to the dealer (to avoid any bait & switch). We also paid the maximum the dealer allowed on a credit card ($3,000) to get the 1% credit card rebate (that amount would have gone into the check, so we'll just pay it off anyway).
Oh, and one small but time-consuming thing before signed the purchase agreement and handed the money over. We test drove the van and both my wife and I felt a shake around 65 mph. The salesman didn't feel anything, and neither did the service manager and technician who joined me for another drive. Putting the wheels on the balancer confirmed what I was feeling ... at least one of the tires was flat-spotted from sitting for a long time. They swapped all four wheels and tires with a new EX-L on the lot and we went out again -- problem completely solved.
All in all, we're very happy, and ready for a good road trip.
p.s. I will post a separate dealer review in that forum topic.

can you email the quote you recieved and the sales rep name at badtaamiz_2000hotmail.com?
i am also thinking about buying the EX now since i was recent victim of bait and switch for exl w/dvd and nav since then we have decided to just purchase the ex.
Also wonder what rate did you finance your car and from which credit union?
So far the best offer i have is $25,650 OTD.

Just contact their Internet department. You should expect a consistent level of service from any of their sales people.

Oh yeah, they also gave us a $75 iTunes card (we had filled out a form ahead of time on their web site). Nice little bonus.

We are in Chicago area and bought EXL with DVD and Nav for $33k OTD. Do you think it's a good deal?

The dealer is Brandfon Honda. The original quote was $26800 OTD. There were two EXs in their parking lot. I got a silver one, which was on the lot for about half month. If you are more patient, I believe that you get a price below $24000. I have to take this price since I need this van in hurry for my newborn.
