I received my letter yesterday. This is kind of good actually. I'll end up with free valve checks/adjustments for the next 10 years. That is going to chop off at least 1.4hrs of my labor at the 60K timing belt replacement.
I have not received my EW letter, yet. 馃槨

Are you certain that's how the EW reads in that any and all future valve adjustments will be covered up to an additional 10 years?

It's only related to the starting condition. You simply state you are having start/stop issues and valve check or adjustment will be required if they relays and starter check out ok.

~~I like the way you think. Sounds like you're going to get to that 60k maint issue before we will. Please share your results.

Mine does. I keep my cheap Fluke meter with me and check voltage periodically. Another option is to get an adapter for the cig socket that shoes voltage. Meter is just as simple though....
Scan Gauge FTW (as it also provides the all important transmission temperature)

That is more BS from @ballisticexchris, a simple search for the term "Scan Gauge" on this forum or the Piloteers forum will reveal that many members are using the tool without any issue. It's simply taking readings off the ECU not putting the vehicle in a diagnostic mode or overriding safety features.
As I have done, let him be. Others may take interest. More info is better than not enough info to sort through on one's own.

Unless advised other wise by your Honda service writer (or trusted 3rd party mechanic) due to presenting issues, following the recommended service interval of 105k miles for the timing belt and valve adjustment will be just fine.

Just as I have on our other Honda (CR-V).

I'm with you.

My 2004 Dodge Durango often goes over a week without even as much as a start up and then starts up without fail or stutter. The outside temp where the Durango is generally parked has hovered around freezing at night for much of this winter. No problems. Thank you very large lead cord CCA Interstate Battery! (same brand battery that Honda badges to their own albeit an AGM in the PP).
