Thinning the herd, time for Ody to go. Incomplete maintenance and repair thread here. Quick stats:

2010 Ody EX-L, 265k, I've owned and serviced since 2014 @ 48k. Not cherry. My dad would call it "the box the cherry came in."

I would legit let my kids drive this thing cross country without hesitation. Reliable like gravity.

Power sliding doors currently not powered. I diagnosed it as switch assembly issue. New switch is on order.

Currently on low-mileage Blizzaks because my non-winter tires are bald and I'm not replacing them.

Price? berkeley, I don't know. Is it worth $1500? If not, what's it worth to you? Cheaper if you tell me it's going to be a Challenge car (or Challenge donor).

I'd almost do a Fly 'n Drive for this and then I could pick this up https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/424609316973194/ and drag it back to San Jose. Well along with a trailer of some sort...

GLWS>.  I'm on #2 Honda Odyssey from this era (both 2008s).  We've had one in the household since 2011.  It's also been the fastest vehicle in the fleet for most of that time.  They're great vehicles with a ton of utility.  They'll drive "OK" even when everything is worn out/neglected. Ours is now my son's daily driver & he loves the thing (the subwoofer I added helps a bit).  They're hard to beat from a budget people-mover perspective.

GLWS.  My in laws have an Odyssey as their ski slope commuter in Colorado.  With studded snows, this thing is way more impressive than it has any right being.   Put a Thule Box on the roof, and you can carry 7 real adults, gear, and beers to/from a mountain even in the most impressive snowstorms.  I approve.

My friend in Texas might be very interested in this. Or, for me, I'd be interested. Can you send me pics of the interior and undercarriage?

A co worker's wife's CX5 just got smashed and he may be looking for a new/inexpensive family truckster... hmm

I guess you should add me to the lineup, kids may like this better because it's an automatic.

Yeah put me on the list. As long as it's kosher to add on behalf of a friend. He has a 2008 with over 250,000 miles for his family and this is an upgrade

OK, I'll get kid and SWMBO approval for this.  I would have to sell the Gambler issue X5.

I'm not as desperate for a beater as I was, but let me kniw if he upgrades. I might be able to put his castoff to use!

I've contacts there, n and s of Detroit, so that's a plus. Rust, well as a beater for a season or three, I can live with that! At a beater price, of course.

Missed it! Looks like it will get put to good use.

Probably would have jumped on at a couple grand as a size upgrade from the Mazda5 dad-mobile/potential challenge engine donor in a few years but that's what I get for not checking GRM much lately :P
