Careful on O'Reilly though. If the wear is uneven at all, they'll deny the warranty. This may be on a per-store basis but last time I brought in pads from my '09 Pilot they denied my warranty because...

I adjusted mine at about 150K and found that most of them were a bit loose. Including exhaust which was kind of odd. In my 2006 J32 it was the typical intake/loose and exhaust/tight. Not too loose...

It seems to have a bit more play it in that I've seen with other vehicles, but I wouldn't consider it excessive. The radiator has bushings on both the lower and upper mounts rather than hard...

Some of these cars had torque converter issues, but I don't believe that the noise you described was a symptom. As for the transmission itself, it's relatively solid. I'm afraid you got ripped off.

I'm surprised they're still covering the 3.7L oil consumption issues with the 4G TL and 2G MDX. But covering a dash from a vehicle that old - I don't think you'd see any auto manufacturer do that.

Sounds like you're coming up on your 210K timing belt service, but otherwise, I'd just keep on top of the ATF. Possibly change it more frequently to keep the transmission in good shape.

Good point. The gas cap lets air in, but doesn't let fuel vapors out. If it's defective and letting fumes out, that could certainly be a reason for the smell. If it wasn't letting air in, I suppose...
