Hello to Accord Owners Club! I'm about to collect (in 1 week's time) a new Honda CR-V 2.2 EX diesel manual in Twilight Blue Metallic. It's my first Honda (jointly owned with Mrs AirMiles, that is ) - but by no means my first car - and I have found this forum to be very useful. Although reading some members' experiences could be off-putting when moving to a different manufacturer (and this is equally true of other makes), I'm still confident of the choice of vehicle. The test drives sufficiently impressed me and Mrs AM that we placed our order (last month) within a 2 weeks of the first drive. Having the salesperson bring the car to the house and drive it into our garage (a tight fit through the door, though plenty of room inside) was the clincher for Mrs AM, whose own car had that garage all to itself for 10 years while my brand new car sat on the drive (such is marital democracy!). The CR-V wiki FAQ have been very useful and I hope to be able to contribute my own observations as time goes on. I would be interested especially in other members' experiences with Summer/Winter tyres.
