Apparently they ripped apart the engine of the Ody today and found baked on oil as well as a nearly shattered crankshaft (not sure how it actually was, hearing this from my dad) so apparently we're gonna trade in the van for an identical 2007 Ody with half the miles...(60K vs. 120K). Yes, its more logical, but over those 120,000 miles and 9 years, you kinda bond with a car, especially if it was your family's first new one. I still have fantasies of a J37 swap, but that's def not gonna happen, seeing as just getting the J35 swapped would be $5000, and since my dad can get $6000 trade-in for it and the new car is $16,991 and if he can take the other dealership in small-claims court he can get up to $10000...making it a free purchase...so I'll keep updating as things work out, unfortunately saying goodbye to the old Ody but hi to a new one...too bad we couldn't get anything more fun...but it would be less reliable and my dad wouldn't want that... (I wanted to get an original Espace, cuz French minivan and over 25 years old, but yeah, no.)

Here's the possibility...
