I still don't see it listed. Where on the specs is it listed?

The Honda website has been acting funny since it was updated Oct 7th.
Initially they gave the specs for the 05 CRV, which does include VSA. However yesterday and today, when you go to specifications, it's giving you the 04 specs for some reason.

First off, the tires are those god awful Bridgestone Duellers. Hard to tell what the interior fabric was like since it still had the plastic on it from the factory. I didn't stop long since I was looking at it at a dealer called Ontario Honda in upstate New York who screwed me on a used Honda a long time ago. I had to skidadle before a salesman came out to talk to me.
Other wise, this is one fine looking vehicle

Hi joshofindia -
Since the 2005 models are brand new, no one has data on the incidence rate of fires yet. I'd say that if you're very concerned about the issue, then there's no sense buying this vehicle - you'll only worry about it forever.

honda.ca site now only lists the 5-sp auto as the only change on the '05. No curtain airbags, VSA, or even the 16" wheels. Weird!

The CRV fire problem is caused by the Tech removing the oil filter and having the old gasket stick to the block. When replacing with the new filter, there are two gaskets...the leakage is what is causing the fires.
