Hey no problem. Glad I could help.
Next time you try the "VSC off" driving, you can see how easy it is to set the car drifting. Keep her in 1st, turn the wheel almost full lock, and give her gas. She will spin around the front wheels.
Have someone video tape and post it on youtube
Here is mine
Manuals are AWESOME. Anything else is a eunic.

Looks like a blast! Now I kind of want winter to come back so I can try it! Glad to see those rear wheels really do work
I'm going tire shopping this week. Thanks again, blueiedgod!

"Wait - so your wife was driving with daytime running lights on, lights that are made to be on for daytime use, and she was stopped because she didn't have the full headlights on? I don't understand. Are daytime running lights not legal enough? "
I suspect she got stopped at night; the running lights don't activate the tail lights.

Gotcha. She drove at night with running lights on, thinking they were headlights. Thanks.

Prospective buyers should be aware that Honda PR may be better than Honda products. My 03 CRV EX needed tires at 20,000 miles (Michelin replacements have lasted 47K and counting) (so thanks Honda for that rip), front struts went at 40K, rotors at 42K, AC compressor at 10K, and the sunvisor flopped limply at 65K ($100 replace).
Not too impressive.

Ah, but you seem to be the exception (sorry to hear about your problems) as CR and their readers (ie CR-V owners) consistently give it excellent ratings. W/O knowing your driving style, tires wearing out that fast are usually due do driver performance. Can't speak for the other problems but they can happen with any vehicle.

Why oh why do people feel the need to be Honda apologists? My message stated that the replacement tires have lasted 47K miles (compared to 20K on OE
'Duelers'). The OE tires on 03's DID have horrible performance as reflected in CRV forums.
I have an 03 Odyssey that has had not unusual wear or breakdowns (tires lasted 65K).

I forgot to add that the motivation for my original post was that the CRV now has three failed door lock actuators. The unsympathetic dealer wants $600. See ya Honda!

Does any body pay attention to the useless current fuel mileage indicators that are on the upper information display ?
