What is everyones opinion?

I looking at a 2008 EX-L RES. Seems to be a 15% discount from the New 2010 Price.

Has 26k miles. Seems to be inline with quotes/appraisals from KBB, NADA, and Edmunds. Not too off.

I am assuming 2010 EX-L RES will be around $30,500.

DO i have to look out for anything from a 2008 model?

javamaan, Is 15% (or $4500 off $30,000) enough of a savings off of a new van with a full warranty and no worries about the van's history? I know that does not answer your question, but it might be something to consider. This link has a few more thoughts on new vs. used. Good luck.

Does warranty transfer on buying used? if it does, i dont have an issue buying used. Any discount helps. Drop in price is usually more than the value you can extract out of it.

In the case of the Odys it looks like it is pretty dam close.

Anyway, i would like to know if i need to look out for any 2008 model specific issues?

Best bet is to read the '05+ forum. There are some persistent problems that date back to '05 such as power steering, brakes, etc. Nothing major although it appears the '07+ seem to have some torque-converter issues (transmission was changed slightly in '07). I've seen some programming changes and some have had the TC replaced.

I use the Canadian version of this website and find it useful. http://www.vmrintl.com/ Otherwise I search on websites selling used vehicles to see the market values.
