I paid a bit more than that to have one with ~ 74k miles... which seemed to be the "normal" price I was seeing in our area...

20 city/ 28 highway??? What are they smoking? Remember that's pax wheels $1400 to replace all four. Depaxing that will be the next step. I cant comment on the price coz I got my unit b-new.

Try the search and use PAX* as the search term or use "PAX Tires" with the double quotes and see what you get on PAX in addition to the 2 stickies uptop.

The word PAX was derived from another abbreviation called PAV. PAV was a word that described the then new, "vertically anchored" tire. Then it was changed to PAX for some reason. It does not stand for anything.

@chris70cuda, PAX is not a brand of tire but the type of ran flat tires Honda decided to give all 05-07 Touring owners. It is a specialized type of tire that is not carried by the average tire shop and its that expensive $1.4K to replace too. It also has to be removed on special equipment that your average tire shop dont have. In short, it is like a sore swollen hemorrhoids that every 05-07 Touring owners wanna get rid of. Depaxing is just like surgery-getting rid of that pesky cauliflower on their b*tt.

Our 05 didn't have any issues except the power steering pump issue, which most of 3rd gen odys have, a broken rear engine mount once, which again most of 3rd gen odys have. See if you can get a little more discount because when I traded our 05 last year, ours was praised at Honda as trade in for only $10k with 123k miles on it. The tires were pretty brand new, the car was in a great condition because I always tale care of all our cars, the t-belt was done on time, and all the services were done at Honda on time again.

Let me know what you think about this vehicle..miles, reliability..any problems for that year and lastly is that a good price?

I can't speak for price as it varies quite a bit based on local market supply & demand conditions.

And I find pics from advertizers of little use to judge the true condition of a vehicle. There's a lot that sellers, whether private, used car lot or even dealers can do to mask problems in pics, at least make the vehicle look appealing enough to get ya down to them for a closer look.

The MOST important aspects of buying a used vehicle to me are:

  • service records
  • service history
  • GUT FEEL

The old adage "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." applies.

Since you may be buying from a used car dealer (like this one), be careful of what type(s) of after-sale warranties they offer. Read the fine print, as they say. It's your money, your investment, and the safety of you and your family who will be riding in it. Do your homework, never rush, and never buy on emotion.

All the best.
