Fun base 940 options comparison 900 1995

Dear rehsper,

Hope you're well. Accepting as true your statement as to the Honda Odyssey, I note that newer vehicles's electronic-intensivity forces most to rely on dealers for maintenance. Newer vehicles' heavy reliance on electronics means diagnostic software is needed, some of which is "dealer-only", i.e., not available for purchase.

Further, as most newer vehicles are front-wheel drive, there's little "work room" in the engine bay. Swapping-out an alternator on a 940 is a 20-minute task. I doubt anyone can match that time on a Honda Odyssey. That said, it should rarely be necessary to change an alternator.

Thus, it might still be worthwhile to acquire a newer vehicle, because the infrequency of maintenance offsets the greater complexity and so cost of maintenance.

Hope this helps.

Yours faithfully,

Spook
