Hey guys, My 98' ody i've had for a year has died. I am going to do an engine swap on the thing but in the mean time it was time for a more reliable car for my wife and kids.

I got an '06 touring with 71k miles w/3yr 38k mile warranty for $19ish out the door.
(car $16,950 +tax, etc. and $1250 for warranty)

I'm really excited, can't wait to pet my baby! :tongue:

Drove my ody today, I had a good chance to test it in the snow and it performed well. We have the "snowmaggedon" coming through Michigan so it was a fun drive. One thing I did notice is that the back wiper only cleared the lower half of the window. Is this common? I know with allot of cars it is normal to have "misguided" rear wiper.

Its very common. Just means that you wiper blade needs replaced.

You have 2 options...
(1) go to the dealer and buy their blade
(2) buy an aftermarket wiper assembly and remove the blade from the assembly.

Personally, I buy the aftermarket blade. I have bought the 16" RainX brand and used a pair of needle nose pliers to bend the metal clamps that hold the blade in the assembly. Simply bend, then slide the old blade out...and put the new one in (don't break off the plastic end on the rear wiper assembly).
