Thinking of buying a 2009 Honda Accord

I recently found a 2009 Honda Accord for sale that is within my price range and something I'm seriously considering. I do have a question that someone may be able to answer or provide some insight.

Vehicle Details: Honda Accord EX-L V6 Navigation System

The carfax checks out with no problems but one thing sparked my interest was that within a span of 6 months it says "Anti-theft computer/module replaced" - does anyone know what that may mean? Should I stay away? To have it re-placed in such a close amount of time is odd and makes me think something is wrong with the car even though I dont know exactly what it means. Any help would be greatly appreciated! It is a certified pre-owned Honda.

    You might have better luck in our discussion called Quick Question for a Car Dealer. We have at least one former Honda salesperson who may be able to answer that, and several other folks who may know the answer.

    You are worried about nothing.

    Car Fax's have stopped a lot of people from buying perfectly good cars.

    Still, if you are uncomfortable (no reason to be), you should move on.

    I just purchased brand new over certified used because of dealer cash and 0.90% financing for sixty months.
    The cost of a two year old Honda verses brand new is within a couple thousand dollars and the peace of mind that comes with buying new can't be beat.
