So far, after a year and a half, it has been a much better experience than that whick was compared to the Honda. The service department is easy to deal with. The car is a delight unlike that unstable boat of an Odyssey. The car is pretty much impeccable...it's flaws are too minor to mention except for the CEL but that has been resolved. I give them an A+ on quality, comfort, AND gas mileage (21.5 tonight around town).
I suppose that I know that it may not have great resale but I do plan to hang on to it for many years to come. I don't think that my trade would any worse than being told my Honda that my lease was worth $3000 less than that residual which certainly was no incentive to buy that car outright as I have this Santa Fe.

I believe the most accurate is the date of manufacture to see if your car is included. The date that Honda stopped using that faulty odometer. You can find the info label at the driver side door frame, together with F/R (cold) tire pressure. It is not recall so I don't know whether you probably will get feedback on that if you register your VIN in www.honda.com
This is absolutely Quality Control issue. Honda has to be responsible for whatever parts they decided to use from contracted suppliers. 4% lack of safety side is big, a matter of life loss if the air bag deploys 4% later or the brake lags 4% that jump off the cliff/bridge. Odometer 4% faster is NO big deal but that sends a signal to consumer that Honda quality is going downhill, like the infamous tranny issue 99-03 Ody.
I personally feel Honda is unwise for mounting "very low ratings on *Will You Buy It Again*" tires on my 08 Pilot (traded-in 07 Ody, you know how I like the Ody now. Actually I want Highlander as they both nice car but the Honda dealer gave me Ody trade-in price $3,500 more than Toyota dealer. Can't argue with that). Tire is Noisy and Poor Handling. Honda may blame it on the tire suppliers, however they won't be mounted on my 4 wheels if Honda used some better tires. Honda might save some money (don't know how much) but sacrifying consumers complains on it.
The old days Honda slogan "The Car That Sell itself" is no more valid.
