Oh I'd never take it to a dealership for service unless it was under warranty. I've got a ninja of a mechanic next door to where I work... axles, meaning I know the CV boots are about to crack and break open This isn't my first rodeo! I've had nine Hondas, broken axles on every one of them at least once! One time I was doing 70mph!I hear you...some of the '17's I found were still pretty pricy...that's why I said be patient. I got mine at the dealership in August last year, it was a trade in from a guy that had found out his wife was pregnant. Had 25K on it, factory warranty, primo shape and conditions, minus the small chips on the hood that Dr. Colorchips took care of, for 21K. Didn't hurt that I have purchased 4 brand new Honda's from that dealer over the years. On the timing belt issue, look around. There are a bunch of places that can do that belt and all the other internal replacement parts WAY cheaper than the dealership. Fact, all of my V6's have been done by a local mechanic and I've never had any issues. Curious, what to you mean by "both axles"? 100K miles, your just getting that V6 broken in!!! You also got to figure your insurance is going to go up with a newer car.
