Hey all,

I'm planning on taking a look at this 05 EX on Saturday.
http://www.keenanhonda.com/VehicleDetails/739821993

80,000 miles with manufacturer's recommended maintenance roughly every 10-15,000 miles. I don't know what this involves, but I requested them to send me copies of the records they have, as some service was done by that dealership. Besides the recommended maintenance, the "engine/powertrain computer/module" was checked at 50k and 70k, and the alternator, generator and water pump were replaced at 70k. I don't think these were prevenative, as they are separate from the recommended maintenance. Do you think this is reason for concern?

Thanks

Hmmmmmm......maybe never have a Honda dealer work on your car as they charge an arm and a leg and they'll find plenty to try and "fix", right?:evil: Alternator, generator and water pump already replaced? Wow!!!!

My 2005 has 92K on it and all I've done is the usual: change the oil, fluids, filters and put in one new battery since I bought it. I'm on the 2nd set of tires as well.

But if those items were actually replaced already on this car - that's good. Did you buy it?
