You can never tell exactly. I'm going to tell you a true story, but change as many identifying facts as possible. I do a lot of charity work and one of my biggest places is at a food bank. Its government funded so certain information does need to be collected. People come here to get food for their families when they can't afford it. Last July, a woman came in with a 3 week old (registration was still in the window) Honda Odyssey Touring. By the time I arrived that morning, it was already parked out front and I think my jaw dropped when I saw it. Now I understand that people buy cars then lose jobs, but I would love to know what the circumstances were that led to a car like that being in my parking lot just weeks after purchase. The best I came up with was that maybe they had a Navigator and had to trade down. It was bought at a local dealer and everything checks out. I have been doing this sort of thing for a long time and have come to know the chain of events that lead to the food bank and they don't normally come 3 weeks after the purchase of a 40k van. Its not the first time I've seen a car like that, the last time was a Sienna Limited, but it was 5 years old and clearly had enough time for an "income change" (I was also told the story). I also have clients from million dollar homes, but again, enough time passed from the time of purchase. So the point is you just never know, but I get what your saying, Ody buyers tend to be rather stable.
