Casey's Saved me Thousands!!
Thanks to Pete and his honesty to let me know about a lawsuit with Honda regarding Honda Odyssey eight year extended warranty on Odyssey Piston Ring problem.
I purchased the van from a local dealer end of Aug. On Nov. 16 the engine light came on and was blinking. I was downtown Chicago. I pulled over, popped the hood and checked the oil. I was surprised that it barely showed on the $@!#%. I had Casey's change the oil when I purchased it. I walked to Target on Street street picked up some oil....started and decided to drive it home. That night I dropped it off at Caseys. Next day, Pete called me and said they did a diagnostic and were getting codes on #3 piston. He said Honda has had issue with piston rings allowing oil into the piston and they have a extended warranty for eight years on this issue. He suggested that I take it to Honda, because the 2013 is still within warranty. Honda ran diagnostic and said....four of the six pistons have this issue. This is a very labor intensive repair and costs $3,000-$5,000 normally. The extended warranty for 8 years is based on the original sales date. It turned out the original buyer bought it in Dec. 2012. I literally had a few weeks before the warranty expired. So a big Thank You to Pete and the gang at Casey's Palatine.
