If the engine was not replaced by a shop I'd keep shopping. God only knows what's been done to this vehicle. Since the seller can't produce any maintenance records he probably did the engine swap himself. I'd also ask myself why would someone go to the trouble and expense of swapping the engine then turn around and be selling this vehicle? Sounds fishy to me. HTH. -Jim

It's an 11 year old Honda so the value of this vehicle is not real high. TSX engine is a great engine and if installed properly would likely not hurt the value much, but if the install was a hack job then the car's value is much diminished.
