    Cool Hello from sunny South Florida

    Hello - I have an '02 purchased on New Years Eve '01. Current odo=46K (thanks to Tri-Rail station <2mi from home). I love the Ody, it is truly a utility vehicle with class, unlike SUVs (S = stupid). (Hope that comment is not considered "hate"!) I love being next to a SUV at HD/Lowes when it's owner is trying to cram stuff into the back end. I slide in a few 4x8 sheets of plywood, close the lid and tell them they oughta get a minivan...

    ONLY problem I've had in 6 years is the passenger window which got stuck in the down position- happened twice in less than a year (just out of warranty, of course). First trip to dealer cost $325 or so, second trip was covered by the 1 yr. warranty.

    My daughter in Larkspur, CO has an identical Ody with about 80K- she loves it. When I visit I feel right at home, but I get to sit in the passenger seat.

    I recently changed the cabin dust & pollen filter- a link an Ody friend sent to me made mostly it painless. Next time will be easier with that plastic bracket already removed...

    Was considering an '08, but heck, mine is still a pup!

    Wonder what/when the next gen will be...

    I forgot to mention that about twice a year I do get a lingering gas smell after filling up- dealer said it's a $2 part but a $300 job to fix on top of the gas tank. Think I'll live with it unless it gets worse- anybody else had this occur?

    Don't ever "top off" the tank. There have been folks here with some kind of filler neck crack. They usually replace it because it is setting codes and the check engine light. If all you get is a fuel smell, and only occasionally, then I'd wait.
