my handed down 2nd gen still going with my brother in the same situation.Heavy oil leaks are unacceptable, tacky, and just cannot be if one parks some places. Also, in the 4th generation being discussed here, some leaks will ruin other expensive components, like alternators. As much as many of us have have long and satisfying runs with the 2nd gen Odyssey, sometimes they are just over. I know mine is. The only reason I still drive it because I am poor, not frugal. Being cheap is no excuse to pollute.
agreed, that logic seems just plain old negligent or at best inconsiderate.
