    After an email reminded me I'd been away for a while, I'm back. Reason for absence, Life etc. + totally reliable FR-V, now 2 1/2 years ownership of 05 Sport. Two negatives, which so far don't dent my high opinion of this car -1) Got stuck in a moderate snowdrift, managed to reverse (just) out of it & reverse 1/4 mile to next junction to turn back- the low front flexible valance will dig into deep snow, barring progress ! Didn't happen on my old series 1 CR-V - lesson - modify expectations of snow ability. 2) last service flagged up porous sump (now nearly 10 years old, 80,000 miles) - big bill looming to enable me to keep the car - which I want to do. Nothing's perfect !

    No, DieselPower, not yet - not rushing. First I've heard of this malady until the other day, someone with a 51 reg Nissan Micra had sump replaced.

    A good little review on things there @C50
    I hope the bill isn't too big.
