" free pets/smoke car, want to a smaller car too big for my family "

10 to one they want the money wired to Nigeria.

That is a scam...as Nigeria is full of internet scammers. To Catch a Predator: Identity Thieves covered a scam which went back to the source-Nigeria.

The mileage is unusually low but if it's a 3 year old base model odyssey, then the price is about right. Notice there is no plate on the car so it might not be driven for a long time.

I wonder if it was wrecked, as it appears to be having a bit of an identity crisis.

In the pictures, it has the roof rack, body colored mirrors and door handles of an EX (or above). Yes, the roof rack could have been dealer installed, but it has the wheels of an LX, and it appears to have the manual AC of an LX, and also the black rear spoiler of an LX.

No way. Like psu ody said, it's an LX with EX pretensions. I'd have one hard look at its history and underpinnings.

yeah.. thought so too. Have a note into the person selling it.

Most of the scammers are more obvious about it. Just figured if it were legit it might be nice for someone here (I'm not in the market, just figured someone might be).

Its a LX alright. Its missing the power door switches and I believe even the plain Jane EX comes with 'em. :)

LX, look at the wheels. 9000 miles on a 2009 for $18.5...too good to be true alright.
$18,500 for a 3 year old LX might be a good deal in Canada, but it's not for US.

Good point. I would venture to guess that very few LX owners went to the trouble of having the door handles and mirrors painted to match the rest of the van....which supports the suggestion that this thing is wrecked van that has been cobbled together with junkyard parts.

I'm not sure, but could this be a Canadian van? Is there a Canadian version without power doors but with body colored mirrors and door handles?

I haven't seen any LX's with roof-rails. My 2008 LX doesn't have them. Regardless, given their awesome English language skills, I'd be leery.
