We purchased a 2019 Odyssey Sept 2019. Found spots on the driveway and garage.Called Honda to bring it in. They found a hair line crack in the engine block. They gave us a Loaner car (cost for gas used). 26 days later they released the Honda. The paperwork shows they replaced the engine with a "Short Block" I am trying to get a 10 year 100,000 mile warranty (It now has a year 30,000 mile warranty. I read a report that HONDA had offered to owners of 2006-07-08-09 the 10 year 100,000 with the same propblem. I am trying to get that same warranty for my 2019 Odyssey.
